Hi, There!   PS - THIS CARD WON TOP 3 AT 7 KIDS CHALLENGE !!  Thank you for choosing my card!!  Yahoo!!

Hope my post finds you well.  Since Halloween, I have been obsessed with the thoughts of red Candy Apples.  I like them just plain - red candied - not with nuts and not with coconuts.  Funny how hard it is to find just one red candied apple.  The supermarkets here sell them but they all have something on them - alas! I will have to make my own so I bought some crisp apples and will be making them this weekend.  So onto my card - This is an Elizabeth Bell  rubber stamp image called "Apple Blossoms" and I love her sweet face and her long pony tails.  She looks like she picked some of the best apples in town!  Thanks for stopping by and till next time, here is to apple picking and red "plain" candied apples:)  Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

  7. This is such a super sweet card! Your coloring is always beautiful & I love how you combine all your embellishments. I have to agree with you. I don't want anything on my candy apple except the caramel either! I made some when my sister was here & used the packaged wraps. It was easy, but they didn't taste as good as doing your own!

  8. Gorgeous card, CaroleAnn! Love this sweet image! She is so adorable, and you've colored her so beautifully! Your flowers and design are fabulous! So glad you shared with us at 7 Kids College Fund! off to find some apples and caramel! :)
