'Apple of My Eye'

Hello everyone! One last card before Santa gets here :-)

I created this card for the current challenge at Less is More. Our challenge is to create something based on a past challenge, and I chose challenge #26 “Feeling Fruity”. 

While on Pinterest last night, I was inspired by a project using twine to fill in the shape of an apple, so I thought I would try to do something like that. I die cut my apple, loop-de-looped my red and white twine, then added 2 solid colors for the stem and leaf...I stamped my sentiment, and that was it! I thought this would be a fun card to send off with our 'care packages’ to my step-granddaughter at college.  

Here is a close up of the twine:

Well, that’s it for me ~ We celebrate on Christmas Eve, so I will probably not have time to blog again for a few days. I would like to take this time to thank all of my blog followers for your loyalty and friendship, and to wish everyone a very Christmas!
