Happy Tuesday ~ before I talk about my card I wanted to share with you all that Emma from My Creative Time is having a "Show Me Your Technique" every Tuesday! So every Tuesday some very talented MCT design team members will be sharing with you and me their technique. Some you may already know about ~ some might be just a different way they do something or maybe you have seen it but never knew how to do it! Listen there are so many techniques out there to learn about! I am super excited for this! Many times I have said to myself how did she/he do that? This week the 3 VERY talented ladies are:

For my card today I made this for my son's teacher this year. Everyone always does apples for teachers and I just couldn't help myself! Well yesterday my son started his first day of First Grade! So our house was rather busy in the morning and right after school he was in his first coach pitch baseball game! Sorry to tell you ALL but I have no idea if his team won! LOL! But his day went smoothly and he just seemed to LOVE the WHOLE entire day! YEAH!!! Crossing my fingers this year goes this great every day! Wishful thinking never hurts anyone!
So I LOVE the Preserves cartridge. All the fruit on there is just BEAUTIFUL! So I decided to pull out that Gypsy and play around! Well I have to say I think I won this time! We have a love hate relationship! I welded the apple to make a shape card. Cut out all the layers. Well I didn't like how my leaves weren't PERFECTLY match so I pulled out my new favorite ~ hemp! My sweet friend and fellow MCT design team member, Liz, has a wonderful boutique where you can buy it! Click here. So I just ran some thru my Zyron and solved that problem! I LOVE how it looks on my leaves. Then the decision on what My Creative Time stamp to use! Well of course there are so many to choose from but I pulled out one of my FAVORITES of all time ~ "Teeny Tag Greeting" . Not only does it have some wonderful little sentiments but it also come with these ADORABLE stitch dies! I call it Emma's signature stitching because I just LOVE how it looks on her dies! The other stamp set I used is a WONDERFUL set that I personally think is another must have ~ the "My Teacher Rocks!" . I just inked up my apple a bit ~ tied a bow and done!!!
Alright that is it for today! So please head over to these VERY creative, talented and beyond SWEET ladies blogs! I am sure you WON'T be disappointed!!!
