Picking Apples

Good morning crafters, are you getting lots of sunshine your way or have the heavens opened up with a down pour of rain. Unfortunately it's raining for me today so the boys and I will be having a wee crafty morning. It's my mother in laws birthday so the boys will be busy making lots of projects and later we will be of to gymnastics then hitting the shops to get some cake,yummy!!!

Today I have my dt card for Charisma and once again I have used a sweet sugar nellie image called picking apples. She's quite an old one but I just adore her and I used my very neglected K & Co papers.I used the fabulous sketch from the sugar bowl challenge blog, love it so versatille.
