DD #27 & MIM #90 ~ The Apple of My Eye!

Hello my bloggy friends! I made a card today to play along at the Dynamic Duos challenge in honor of the new design team. This was their first week and I wanted to show them some support. I have also used the latest Make It Mondays technique from PTI's Besty Veldman. Gosh I haven't played along with a MIM in a long time! But take a look at how I've combined the two challenges.


Betsy showed us a smart way to take a small sentiment and jazz it up a bit so it can have a bigger impact. She stamps a portion of the sentiment, then takes part of it and uses a larger alphabet. Lastly she stamps the other portion of the sentiment. This is my take on it using the PTI Fruit Fusion: apple set with the Mat Stack 4 and Tag-its 3 sets. My two stamped and punched alphabet letters are Hero Arts.

Hope your day was a delightful one ~Lisa

Edited: Oh good grief ~ I just realized I used Rich Razzelberry instead of Raspberry Ripple ~ HA! Darn those berries anyway!!!
