Time out with Apples

 I have not had such a long blog break in a long time - not counting vacation weeks, but my life has been just so awfully busy....Finally I sneaked up into my craft room to play in this weeks Time Out challenge - yes girls, I am taking TIME OUT to do just that......

As you can see on my card the theme is apples. I pulled out an ancient Hero Arts set, called September, which has this pretty apple in it. The sentiment is from the same set.


I heat embossed the apple outline and colored it with Copics and fuzzy cut them. Added glossy accents to make them look more yummy... The little green patch I sponged and made the lines with the edge of an acrylic block. 


And if you are wondering why two apples - I am also playing in the Extra Challenge at Time Out: "Double the Joy"! The occasion  - Bev, one of the wonderful DT members gave birth to twins, Josh and Ben! You probably know Bev from her own stamp company 


Congrats Bev - enjoy your boys, I know you will!

I am also linking this card up with the current HOC challenge - I am on the DT - perhaps you want to share your creation with us over there, too!


And I am linking this card with Di's Snippets challenge - add a snippet - the apples and leaves are

Ich liebe deine Karten!!! Sie sind immer so klar und ohne jegliche Schnörkel, das gefällt mir - und ist auch mein Stil. Woher nimmst du die Ideen immer??? Ich hangele mich an den Sketches und Challenges entlang, manchmal besser, oftmals schlechter.
Ich wünsche dir eine angenehme Woche mit etwas zeit nur für dich zum Erholen, Ausspannen, kreativ sein.
Liebe Grüße,
Flo

Love the shine on the apples, they almost look edible :)

Shona Chambers said...

I saw this first on the 'twins' challenge and thought 'I hope she knows about our apple challenge'. So glad you did!! Those apples look so delicious with all their smooth glossiness. Really like the green sponging as the green lines as well underneath, really makes the apples stand out. So happy you joined us for both TIME OUT challenges and hope you come back again soon!
