Life Is Messy Grand Opening Blog Hop

Happy Friday my friend!  Welcome to the Grand Opening Blog Hop for the Sweet Stamp Shop!  Nicole has done a fabulous job on these sets and they are super fun to play with!  So, if you are following on the hop, you should have arrived from Stephanies's blog  Here is the deal: comment on each blog on the hop and you'll be entered to win stamp set prizes. You have until Monday to comment and be entered to win. Winners will be randomly selected from random blogs and announced on Wednesday the 10th.  Sound like fun?  I thought so!  Now, how bout a fun little card?  




Using a set called The Core of It, I stamped the apple onto a piece of October Afternoon patterned paper, cut it out and adhered it.




Stamped my sentiment and matted the paper onto a red piece of card stock.  I then adhered the panel to a cream card base.
