Pickin' apples on a lazy Sunday morning.

Happy Sunday everyone, I hope you are all having a nice weekend so far. Well as promised I am back again with a new card for you all, I am really on a roll at the moment and I am enjoying my mojo whilst it has decided to grace me with it's presence! I am really enjoying using lots of different types of images at the moment and the freedom to experiment with different colour combos, don't you just think that stamping is the best hobby ever!

Materials

I dug out this oldie but oh so beautiful Sugar Nellie stamp to play with, I just love her and she melts my heart every time I look at her ..... such a perfect image. I have used an unusual colour combo for me but I was inspired by the beautiful colours in the BG wisteria pad which I was lucky enough to win as part of a recent challenge. Nikki from Bunny Zoe Crafts had it out to me straight away and I was able to get my hands on it within a couple of days - thanks for such a speedy service hun! Very little else to tell about my card apart from I coloured the card candy from Craftwork Cards with my copics and that's about it. No fuss with this card, I figured it did not really need anything else - sometimes less is more, don't you think!
