It's Friday...so it is time for the Clearly Inspired Challenge #11(click this link to see the rules and prize) Today's challenge is a Color Challenge. Since Clear Dollar Stamps just came out with their collection of Clearly Coordinating Cardstock and ribbon today's challenge is using these colors. Today's colors are:
Lime Juice
Cherry Go Round
Bee Pollen
Neutrals: Cream, White or Black


When I first saw these colors I new I was going to ink up Shawne's new release FABULOUS FRUIT STAND by CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.

A week or so ago, I was at Joanns and as I reached the checkout, I saw PaperCrafts new issues "Go To Sketches". I took inspiration from pg 9 for this card. (Needless to say I put back my original purchase and got this instead Hee). What's a girl to do?


To make this card I used my new Clevercut, the 5 in 1 Paper Trimmer from Crafter's Companion. I rounded the corners with the punch included on the trimmer. I cut the valance using one of the blades included on the trimmer, you just select your blade, no changing blades.

This card is also for Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday #88. We are to go old school and bring barnyard themed items or Bring our Frizzle and Rap about what we are passionate about. I chost to rap. hee. I LOVE apples.
Here Goes
MY APPLE RAPPLE
Snap snap
Snap snap snapple
This is my rap
rap rap rapple
cuz I love
Love love apples

Crispy crunchy
Juicy to munchy
Good Cooked
Cook cook cooked
But I prefer raw
Raw raw raw
Crispy Crunchy
Juicy to munchy

Please don't squeeze and bruise
Or stick your fingernail in
As germs will ooze
Next time you're at the store for apples
Please please please
RESPECT THE APPLE
