Sweetest Back To School Apples?! ... TGIF Challenge 379:

TGIF Challenge today!  And it is a theme challenge!  I am NOT ready for summer to be over.  So not ready to even start talking about this...but the challenge is back to school!  Wow!  Crazy to think it is time to start thinking about going back to school.  Can't say I am ready at all!  Haha. But this challenge was fun!  And the challenge part about it...I didn't really have any stamps that were calling "back to school" for me.  But then...I looked at the Cherry Builder Punch and thought...hmmmm...those could maybe be apples.  And this card was born...

Colors Poppy Parade, Parakeet Party, Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Basic Black
Inks:  Poppy Parade, Parakeet Party, Soft Suede, Soft Sea Foam, Versamark
Cardstock/Papers: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Basic Black, Basic White
Stamps: Sweetest Cherries
Tools: Cherry Builder Punch, Timeworn Type Embossing Folder, Heat Tool, Scalloped Contours Dies
Accessories: Basics Embossing Powders, Glossy Dots Assortment, Baker's Twine Essentials Pack

So...what do you think?!  Do they look enough like apples?!  And greeting...I am a bit impressed with myself on this one.  Haha.  This whole thing is from the Sweetest Cherries Stamp Set.  I just had to piece the "year" together by embossing a few other phrases and cutting out the individual letters!  How fun, right?!  Here is the stamp set with the letters I cut out circled...

And just a few more shots of the card:

I really love the Pool Party scalloped piece.  Want to know where it is from?!  It is one of the scalloped rectangles from the Scalloped Contours Dies!  I just die-cut it then adhered it to the backside of my cardstock piece!

Now it's time to see what you are going to make!  Head on over to the TGIF Challenge Blog and play along with us!  

Thanks for visiting!  I can't wait to see what you make!
