Apple of My Eye

Hello, it's Bridget here with a fun card to help brighten your Saturday! I've been having so much fun with this new set Punny Fruit and Vegetables designed by Korin at Sweet n' Sassy Stamps. Though the sentiments and images are perfect for Valentines, they can be used all through out the year for so many different occasions. They're also very easy to color, cut out, and pop up as
I did with this smiling little apple. I distressed all edges with Ranger Distress ink and did a bit a of stitching to try and add to the country farmhouse look. I made a small pennant with the main sentiment by using the corner of a small square punch to give the fish tail effect on the right side. This works great for those of us who don't have pennant or banner dies yet!
While making this card I kept thinking about this verse in Psalms, when David was recognising God's incredible love and and asking for His powerful protection to continue:
"Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings."
Psalm 17:8
Imagine the delight of receiving a card with this wonderful sentiment - "You're the apple of my eye" - what a way to remind someone how much you love them!
Have a wonderful weekend, hugs, Bridget
