Back to School - Morning Chat Challenge

As you know, I've been doing the blog hops that Robbie of has been putting on, and I must say, I've been having so much fun.  I participated in one other challenge before and decided to do it again with Butternut Sage's Morning Chat Challenge.  This week's challenge is "Back to School".  I pondered what to do since my children are grown and I really don't have many stamps for children, so I decided to make up my own design.  I am quite pleased with the outcome.  I made the apple using the heart punch and gluing them together to get the 3-D effect.  Take a look and let me know what you think.

What I like most about taking these challenges is that it keeps me fresh and always thinking of new and fun things to create.  Sometimes I would get in a lull, and nothing would inspire me.  Now, I'm inspired all the time.  In fact, I dream of things to make and can't wait to put my ideas to the test.

Well, that's it for now.  Check back again for some new stuff.  Cheers!
