My first card for today's set is a CAS card, using just the large apple and one of the sentiments.  I drew the "frame line" with a marker.




I don't know if it's telling my age, but I sat in desks like this one when I was in elementary school.


Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Be sure you check out the rest of the design team's creations and comment often to increase your chance of winning a free set.

What a shiny apple, Lois...looks great. I found a desk very similar to that for one of boy's bedrooms when he was starting elementary school and it stayed there for many years. He could do homework there.
