An Apple a Day

It’s September and soon the apple orchards and pumpkin farms will be open and busy!  I can’t wait!  I’m dreaming of apple pie lately, so I’m going to have to share our favorite recipe here on the blog!

This week’s cue word over at CASology goes right along with my train of thought.  How very convenient! 

I decided to go with a fun representation of the cue word!  Growing up, I was always intrigued with the story of William Tell!  I was so glad it wasn’t me standing there with the apple perched on my head!  I also had the image of a golden apple come to mind as there are plenty of stories about those too, so decided to combine the two ideas into one card:

Stamps:  Paper Smooches, Sweet Stamp Shop (arrow, sentiment)

A simple black and white image with a pop of gold sparkle for interest and a little dimension added with a foam dot behind the apple!

Be sure and visit the rest of the design team members’ blogs as well as this week’s guest designer’s blogs for more apple inspiration before you head off to create your own version!  Then, don’t forget to link up your creation on the challenge blog by Sunday at 4:00 p.m. (CDT) for your chance to win this week’s prize!

**I am also linking this up to the CAS challenge over at the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog, the owner of which is a past design team mate of mine…Sandy!

It’s back into school routine mode today after a three-day holiday weekend!  After last week’s daily early dismissals due to the heat, this week is going to seem like a breeze!  It looks like a much milder week!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

    I really LOVE your sparkly apple with your B&W image, Melissa! Such a fun and clever card!

  • Jen W. Posted Thursday, 09/05/2013 5:18 pm

    I've got to remember to do this more often. I have a lot of images I'm too intimidated to colour and this is a great way to get some use out of them! Love the golden apple too. You're rockin' the glitter these days! 😀

  • Carol L Posted Thursday, 09/05/2013 10:31 pm

    Bwahaha!! I love the apple on his head, and a gold one at that! Darned cute card!

  • Maureen Merritt Posted Thursday, 09/05/2013 10:59 pm

    Eeek! I love this. How adorable!

  • Jean Posted Friday, 09/06/2013 11:13 pm

  • Gillian R Posted Sunday, 09/08/2013 8:04 pm

    Sorry a late visit from my this week, been on baby sitting duty all week for my niece. Love your card it is just perfect left uncoloured with that gold apple. Love it

  • Judy1223 Posted Sunday, 09/08/2013 8:07 pm

    This is so amazing…the gold glittery apple with no other color? Brilliant! I don't think I could pull that off (or I'm afraid to try?) but you did it perfectly!

  • walchowDesign Posted Monday, 09/09/2013 6:32 pm

    It might look simple but your simplicity really stands out and I know that it's not easy to create a card like this!
