Sit Back, Relax & Enjoy!

Good Morning!

Hope your weekend was a good one. Ours was quite uneventful really. We stayed close to home and went apple picking. As much as we love apples, I think we picked a few too many. May have to find some creative ways to use them up!

I really love coloring up Wheat Riley. I don't know whether it's because of the big hat or the banjo he's carrying or the sprig (is that the word) of wheat in his mouth. It might be the fact that he's wearing clothes and there's more to color than just his fur and antlers?!

A couple of weeks ago, the uber talented Kerry Donovan hosted a sketch challenge (HSC86) for the Hanna Stamps Friday challenge. I wasn't able to play along then, but I had some down time yesterday and the sketch was perfect for Wheat Riley. I had some left over Mr Campy paper Cosmo Cricket and since they're double sided, they came in handy for all these layers in this sketch! Nothing too out of the ordinary with this card. Each layer was sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and matted with Bazzil cardstock. I used (up) some eyelets for some detail and I am LOVING my oval nesties...can you tell? LOL

Have a painless Monday! :)

This is just darling Sandra. Those papers are perfect with Wheat Riley and of course your coloring is flawless. We got apples this weekend too but kept it to 1/2 a peck. Apple crisp is being made tonight.

so cute! love this country riley. I'm a country girl at heart. My parents have an apple orchard on their property and so I LOOOOOVE apples. I started canning apple pie filling that way all year if I need a quick dessert. I open a jar of my apple pie filling and add some "crisp" and voila!
