An apple a day

As promised I'm back with my second post today and it's an image from one of my favourite designers, Elisabeth Bell. The stamp is a Sugar Nellie stamp which has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I've used Kars Country Rose papers. The image was cut out with  a Go Kreate die and I've used Sizzix and Crealie swirl dies with Core'dinations card. Flowers punched with an EK success retro flower punch with added pearls. The wooden apple is also from Kars, coloured with Promarkers and I found the apple charm in my stash, I've added faux stitching round the image and the Kraft card.
Challenges:
The Sugar Bowl Fab sketch and option of use kraft
Elisabeth Bell's World Stitching and swirls
Ladybug Crafts Ink Pink and girly
Stampin' for the weekend Bingo (flowers, polka dots and die cuts)
Simon Says Anything Goes

It's been so lovely to be feeling so much better today and I have an appointment at the hospital tomorrow afternoon. They must have had a cancellation as they offered me the 22nd to start with, when I shall be at Hobbycrafts at the NEC. When I said I couldn't make that date she had another look and said could I make tomorrow, so that was lucky, as I would rather get it out of the way and have a diagnosis.

I'm off to add my card to the Sugar Nellie Facebook page and then will be watching Waterloo Road.
