Little Annie Apple girl

I found the funnest little challenge I think! It is over at "This is My Story" for their Teapot Tuesday challenge. My card is all about a little apple picker named Annie who has just gathered her apples and is taking them in to make applesauce. As you can see she is in great thought about her apple picking and how she can rid herself of that one bad apple that seems to keep knocking her on her fanny! lol Don't know what I am talking about? Well, visit Annie and some other apple pickers at

In the process of making this card I looked for more inspiration and found the challenge at Charisma cards had the perfect color scheme. color pink brown cream and toffee

Over at Creative Inspirations they challenged me to use something that has been added to my stash since the New Year. So I jumped right on this and used new paper from Making Memories....."Love Notes".

Now no challenge can be complete without a sketch. So, after a fun search I decided on the one from Sketch Saturday! What a fun sketch to do!

I also came across the challenge at Nutshells that this card qualifies for!!! I was quite excited. Their challenge was to use pink and brown.

At AiFactory, the challenge was to use lace or lace look punches. I used my Fiskars punch to add a lacey effect.

This card also qualifies for the challenge at Cupcake Crafts. Their challenge was "Girly" and I think little Annie is pretty girly little girl!

I had a lot of fun with all these challenges and am now off to find a few more for my next card! Thanks to everyone for making such fun challenges that I never have time for housework and am happy about that!
