About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Bobbing for Apples

This month's freebie at I (Heart) Sketches is absolutely adorable. So, I colored it up and made a cute little card. Let me know what you think.

The base is a digital paper from Far, Far Hill. The red wood layer is also from Far, Far Hill. The apple banner is actually a background that came with my publishing editor. I cut the apple from scrap paper using the Ultimate Creative Series Sampler. The cream lace is a Martha Stewart punch that I mounted over top of some red crinkle ribbon. The image as colored with a combination with of sharpie markers and oil pencils.

I think this is another one that I will use as part of my card organizer box.
