Miss You - Wish You Were Here

One of my fav types of cards are the easel cards.  I love how they stand up to be used as decor or lay flat for mailing and storage.  I had to ink one of my new Maggie's - now while she is actually holding/picking peaches, I needed red to go with the theme R/W/B for one of the challenges listed below so I colored them red and made peaches into apples!!!

The apples also go along with the Just Magnolia theme of "what's cooking" - My M-I-L makes a fantabulous raw apple cake that I can't get enough of so I envisioned Tilda picking apples to go into the kitchen and bake me one of these cakes!  I know I have the recipe somewhere but I just don't make it as well as my M-I-L so I have given up trying - I'm an awesome cook and baker but something just never turns out right with this one so that tells me I should leave it up to her to bake!!!

I am using this card for the following challenges:

Created for:

Mojo Monday - Sketch 200

Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog - Red/White/Blue

Just Magnolia - What's Cooking

Daring Card Maker's - Wish You Were Here

The image of course is a Magnolia, the sentiment is Autumn Leaves Talking In Circles (have had it for about 4 or 5 years so I don't remember which Circles family it comes from), the ribbon is from my stash, paper is Making Memories from a year or two ago (I just love this line so I've been hoarding what I have left), cardstock is AC, lattice punched piece is from a MS punch (loving this new line of punches) and the gems and adhesive used to attach them and the bow is from Rubber Cafe.

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrappin'!!!

Beautiful card. Thanks for sharing with us at the Daring Cardmakers this week!


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
