*Bobbing for Apples

Good morning!!
Are you watching college football today?
Who is your favorite team?  
My son is in the other room watching the games this morning, so I had to ask!!  :) 

So I created a card a few days ago, using the September Stamp of the Month at From The Heart. 
This gorgeous image is called: Bobbing for Apples
Is it not simply gorgeous!!  
I really enjoyed coloring it, especially those apples!!  Yummy!
I have never played this game, but my husband has memories from his grade school days. 

Do you see the stitched ribbon. 
That ribbon is from my sons Christmas boxes from Gymboree. 
Hey, nothing is ever trash, especially when it comes to ribbon!!  :) 
The apple is  a wood veneer from Studio Calico, that I blinged out, then colored over the top with my Copic marker.  I then applied glossy accent on top, to keep the gems from falling. 
Pretty cute huh!!?

Well you have about none more days to enter the Progressive Monthly Stamp of the Month.
Get all the details HERE

I would like to enter the following challenges:



  1. Sweet image and a super cute card. TFS at DCD's challenge.

  2. Such a sweet card! Your image coloring is excellent (as usual!)! I'm with you on the ribbon saving. I do the same thing, especially the ones from chocolate boxes.

    As we're in France, there's no American football here (our "foot" is soccer), but my husband has been glued to the TV following the European championship of basketball. France is in the final tonight against Lithuania.

  3. Calypso, this is such a pretty card. Sweet image and i like the yellow and red DP. It looks so fresh and bright. Love it !

  4. I'm probably pretty lucky that the only one into sports here is my husband, and then he's just into the NFL. I can give up a few months of Sunday afternoons :) It's not college, but his all-time favourite team is the Dallas Cowboys.
    I remember bobbing for apples too - mostly the water going up my nose, lol! Such a sweet image & I LOVE that gem apple! Such a perfect little embellishment & I love the Glossy Accents tip :) Thanks for coming to play at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week, Calypso! :)

  5. I enjoyed my visit with you!! I ♥ your adorable card.

    I just had to "follow" you so not to miss anything! It would make me so happy if you would follow me too. :)

    Have a beautiful week ahead!

    Lots of BIG Hugs,


  6. So pretty, thanks for playing along with us at DCD!!

  7. What a adorable card! Love the sweet image and the bling apple! Thanks for joining us at DCD this week!
