Apple Of My Eye

Hello there crafty friends! Hope everyone is enjoying what's left of summer. It has been very hot here in SoCal! My kids have just finished their second week of school. This coming week there will be "Back to School Nights" and the week after progress reports.  I want to make some mini cards to give my kids throughout the school year. Here is the first one I made.


This is the apple card from the Wild Card 2 cartridge. I altered it quite a bit. I cut it out at 5.5".  It comes with a branch and bushy leaves attached. I trimmed that off. I cut the envelope out at 4.0" since I trimmed the card. I added another set of glasses and smile to the outer flap too.


Next I changed the frowny face to a smily face. I just love these little glasses. I made this card for my son so no bling! I used a mini tag from My Creative Time Teeny Tag Greetings and stamped it with My Pink Stamper "Fruit and Veggie Puns". I added some twine and stamped the inside with a stamp from Pink By Designs "Our kids" set. 


To me this came out so much cuter than the picture in the book. I hope you like my card! I will participate in the following challenges: 


Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a blessed day!

Oh Tina, I simply adore this! Not only is the card (and envelope) sweet and adorable... but I adore the idea behind them. Precious notes of encouragement will mean so much to them! You are such a fantastic mom, which comes as no surprise. I love the face on the apple and the adorable sentiment. :o) Thank you for sharing your wonderful creation with us at My Craft Spot!

Hugs and blessings,
Karen

Great job on all the altering you did with these files...well worth it, because your card turned out so CUTE! What a good mommy you are, encouraging your kids and recognizing their hard work in school. They'll always remember these little things and love you even more for it!
