CASology #260: JUICY

Hello, friends!  Phew, what an amazing week we had for the Five Year Anniversary Blog Hop!  I am so grateful to be a part of this team, and for all of you who took the time to hop along with us...thank you!  According to my blog statistics, my post last Tuesday was the second most viewed in my blog history!  Thank you to all who left such lovely comments along the way, I do appreciate it.  Thank you for making CASology such a great challenge blog, too!

So, on to a new week and a new cue card at CASology.  This week things are getting JUICY!

Nothing says juicy to me like a big Red Delicious apple.  Yum!  I figured this is as good a time as any to start my teacher thank you notes, and I paper-pieced an old retired apple from Sweet Stamp Shop for a fun pop of color!  Paired with a bold sentiment from Concord & 9th as well as an apple-embossed card base, this apple takes center stage.

Stamps: Sweet Stamp Shop (The Core of It); Concord & 9th (Grateful)
Inks: Memento (Black Tuxedo)
Other:  Lifestyle Crafts QuicKutz (Apples) embossing folder; patterned paper

I am also linking this card up to the current MUSE Challenge #227 where Anything 
Goes -- for the first time ever -- this week!

I can't wait to see how you interpret this JUICY cue!  Be sure to link up your card by noon on Monday (Central time). You will also be inspired by the many ways our Design Team and lovely Guest Designer interpreted the cue this week...be sure to check out their blogs, too!
