Flourishes September Sneak Peeks

Yea! Finally they are here.. right? Right! Today we are going to show you sneak peeks of Apple of my eye. This was a sketch gone wrong. ha ha I was trying to make a card using the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 66 last week but I forgot the top panel, oh well it doesn't look to bad this way. hee hee I added a few pearls and some sheer ruffle red ribbon. I also stamped out the basket weave for the back panel.




Next is a close up of just the bulletin board in my gift set you will see below. I bought this cork board frame for a $1 I believe a few weeks ago. I painted the frame red and stamped out the apples for the center photo. Somewhere I saw these apple thumb tacks that I want to add to the cork for them to use and it would totally finish this off. Now to remember where I saw them at. lol


Here is the complete gift set that I made for Sandy. She loves apples and her kitchen is entirely apples. I have a gift set of cards and bag for her, a little coffee mug (template I found online) with apple cider added inside the cup, a few candies with a tag using the smaller apple in the set. This wood tray I bought years ago and I mean years ago and it sat out for ever never being used. I guess I just had planned so far in advance that I didn't know what I was doing. ha-ha I painted it red and the inside of the apples a dark green. Used some of the chocolate gingham ribbon tied to the handles and on the cider cup for fun.

Now check out the fabulous sneaks from the girls
