Apple Pickin'

Hi there friends,
Before I have zero time to craft :( I decided to get one more card in before I plan for school. My blog pal, Kathy, is on the Tuesday Morning Sketches DT. This week she created the sketch so I had to play along :)
Here's her sketch:
Here's my card:
It's definitely a card to welcome happy days of spring :) The papers are Hometown Summer by Pink Paislee. The sweet image is called Adele Enjoying Fresh Apples by Sarah Kay. I just *adore* all the sweet details in her images. happy sigh...

Here's a closer peek:
She is colored with Copics & under her bare feet is some flower soft. The apple tree behind her is a MFT die called Sheltering Tree. I added little red buttons for the apples :) To finish it, I added a sentiment also from MFT on a Ribbon Tag Trio die from Spellbinders & an apple button to the center of the bow.
I've never been apple picking before  (well, except for a few that hang over my side of the wall from my neighbor's yard ;) ---> don't worry I asked... I think it would be fun to go apple picking & then come home & make a fresh apple pie! yum! Maybe I'm just having a Mary Poppins moment, but hey why not ;) Hopefully, it won't turn out the way it did when we went cherry picking.
     When I was a little girl, my Grammy took me & my brother cherry picking. We could eat as much as we wanted inside the farm & we just had to pay for what we took home in a bag. So, needless to say, my brother & I GORGED ourselves on cherries!!! About 5 minutes into the ride home, we made Grammy pull over & let's just say the only cherries we took home were the ones in the bag!!! Ugh, I will never forget that! But it did not stop me from loving & eating cherries :)

Ok, I see I'm rambling here as a way to keep me from my school junk, but I need to get to it seeing that I haven't touched a thing during vacation! Ah well...
 I'll be playing along with the following challenges:

Thanks so much for peeking friends,

  1. What a sweet card! I love the red button apples and your coloring is spectacular! I used to have apple trees and my neighbor used to sneak over and take them (without asking) when I wasn't home and just about clean them out. It finally ended when I came home once and caught him straddling the fence--his overalls had gotten snagged on the chain link and he couldn't get loose! :) Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week! ~Hugs, Cheryl

  14. Absolutely stunning card! I love every single element about this card. The colors are fun and happy and the image is colored perfectly. Great job!!

    When we were kids, we went to a place called Palisades and we picked apples, pears, plums and cherries. It was our job (my sister's and I) to pit the cherries. We hated this job, so we thought it would be better to eat them. The more we ate, the less we had to pit, right? I don't think I need to tell you the rest... you have the picture!! LOL It took awhile to eat cherries again, but I did! I love 'em.

    Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.
