Hey there, it’s time to be thankful on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog this week.  It’s that lovely time of year where everything’s turning and the nights are for cosying up in front of the fire with a hot drink and a blankie!!  Bliss!

For my card this week I kept it very simple although a wee bit of work went into it to colour that apple (three attempts before I was happy, lol!).  I was totally inspired by the way my idol Debby Hughes coloured this stamp and so I went with her lead and smothered it in Glossy Accents too!  To ground the image and add a little more interest I just framed the card with a free hand border drawn with a Copic multi liner pen.

sss thanks

    I love the simplicity of this. The hand drawn border is a really nice touch. The apple looks amazing…worth the 3 attempts I’d say. Cx
