~~ The Apple Barn ~~

Hi there!! When I saw this paper, by My Little Shoebox, I knew what I would make with it. I used to take my Mother to Ellijay, Georgia to buy apples fresh, from lil red apple barns that are all along the country roads. I used Everyday Paperdolls for the barn, Heritage for the cart and tractor, Stretch Your Imagination for the apple tree and the apples are from a punch I bought at Big Lots for 1 dollar!! Used the Swirls Cuttlebug folder for the tree, Swiss Dots and a Tin Holtz embossing folder for the barn. Did some inking and doodling and then sat down and had an apple with peanut butter on it ! lol I'm sending this one to my Mother and I hope it brings back fond memories!!! Thanks for stopping by Y'all !!!



What a wonderful card! All that embossing makes it wonderful! So glad you are back to cardmaking!!!


It's fantastic! The colors and the texture are truly mind-blowing. Thanks for sharing.


Oh she is going to just loooove this card Joy!!
It is beautiful! My Mom use to take my Grandmother (we called her Bunny) to those pick your own apple orchards. They always had a ball. :)


Joy, this card is beautiful. Your Mom will love it. You did such a great job. I'm thinking Ellijay is not too far from where my daughter lives in Ringgold, GA.


I love this card!

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
