Apple Thanks...CASE Study #208

Once again, hello...and a quick share for CASE Study #208

where this lovely burlap bag and colourful apple tags are sheer delight.

After all my efforts at water-colour backgrounds, painting and splatters, time for a different approach.

Here's my take on the inspiration...really super simple....


and all I have to say is...tee heee!! This little gaffer makes me happy, happy, happy!

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!

That's my heart, right there, on the apple. It leaped out of my chest when I loaded the page, attached itself to the little tag, and it doesn't look like it wants to ever leave that spot. Who could blame it, though, with all the super crisp die cutting, incredibly neat background, and delicious colors on that tag? And I think I might have hearts in my eyes, now, too Carol. That is one super-awesome-incredible tag – lucky person who gets it!
