Apple Of My Eye!

I'm glad I finally decided to post my December SOTC card today because it's a whopping 5 degrees here at the moment, and this card reminds me of summer!

Our lovely hostess Donna (SCS=cricutqueen) challenged us to use our favorite color or color combo. You know I adore pink, but I've been dying to use the retired SU Farm Fresh set I recently scored and couldn't see pink working with it. So I decided to use another fav combo of mine, citrusy greens and tropical blues!

The cute Apple Of My Eye image is simply colored with Copics and matted onto a Sizzix tag that I sponged with SU Craft White, tied with coordinating ribbon, and finished with a crisp white button tied with DMC floss. The faux quilt background squares are from the yummy K&Co. Que Sera Sera collection, some of which I dry embossed with various Cuttlebug EFs for texture. A few Dew Drops in the corners finish the card. I hope the Sisters who receive one feel the summery vibe!

The arctic temps outside make this the perfect weekend for stamping today and cheering my PITTSBURGH STEELERS tomorrow in the AFC Championship game as they continue to climb the Stairway To Seven! ;-)

Thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful day!
