Apples Anyone?

Happy, happy Wednesday.   We're half-way thru the week.  

Today, I'm soooo excited to share with you this new window die that I got at Island Scrapbooking last week.  It's a Madison window by Memory Box.   Don't 'ya think it's COOL????   It was a "must-have" on my wish list and I'm so happy Michele brought them in.   THANK YOU MICHELE!!!!   Made my day!!!!

I was a bit puzzled when I first cut it out as the dark brown "wall" showed right thru.   Hmm, I needed some dimension so I added a piece of stripe DP for the wallpaper in the "living room", then add "curtains".  Pop-up dots behind the window also gives it dimension.   Can you tell I love using my "Buddy" pooch stamp whenever possible?   He heard Apple Emma return from her harvest so he jumped on the couch to take a peek outside.   If you click on the pix, you'll see the stripes on the dark brown wall.




I'm entering this card in the Lollipop Crafts Challenge #73 - Anything Goes.

Supplies:  Apple Emma by C.C. Designs, DP by K & Co.,  Copics, stripe embossing folder by Stampin' Up, dog stamp by Dandelion Designs, grass stamp by Hero Arts, flower punch by EK, edge punch by Fiskars, and rhinestones and pearls by Kaiser Crafts.

Thanks for stopping by.   Hope you have a relaxing and crafty evening.
