Dream Valley Challenge 36 - Anything but square


Before I go any further I just want to say a big HELLO! to my new followers :-) I'm so chuffed to have you on board and absolutely thrilled to have made it to 100 followers! Woohoo! Thank you so much :-)

I'm back for another Dream Valley challenge. Our challenge this time is for


I wanted to do something a bit different for this and with the end of the school year approaching I decided to make the thank you cards for George and Charlie's teachers in the shape of apples!

I made a template and used it to cut the actual card and then the patterned paper to stick on top. I made the stalk and leaf the same way and then added some faux stitching with the fine nib of a brush marker

I personalised each card with the teacher's name cut using my sizzix alphabet die set on my big shot and added a bit more faux stitching....

I've only got the pictures of Mrs Mistry's card here at the moment but I hope to upload the others later - possibly while watching the Wimbledon Men's Final (Go, Murray!!!!!) and eating the strawberries we picked on our family outing this morning :-)

Edited to add:
Here is the piccie of the others as promised....

Murray is currently one set up and battling hard for the second - come on, Murray! :-)

Hope you all have a lovely day!!!

Love 'n' hugs,
