Apple Core

Good morning everyone! It's me, Heather. It's my turn to host the challenge. I chose the apple core from the Preserves cart.

Before we get to the details, I'd like to introduce a new Designer to Bitten By the Bug 2. Please give a warm welcome to Carri V. You can see her blog here. We're so excited to have her as part of the team.

While working on the project, I realized I had kind of stumped myself. Would an apple core make a good "Thinking of You" card? What would that mean? I ate this apple and now I'm looking at the core and it reminds me of you? No, that wouldn't work. Or, what about a "Thank You" card? An apple core and a "thank you" could be taken as a "Gee, thanks for nothing" sarcastic kind of card.

I was telling my mother my dilemma and within a few seconds, she suggest it be a get well card. You know, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away".

"PERFECT!" I exclaimed. So, that's what I went with.

Please join us in this challenge. If you think you can make an apple core work with a "Thinking Of You" sentiment, I'd love to see it!! LOL! Link us up to your project using McLinky below. You have two weeks to prove to me my apple-core-thinking-of-you-idea would really work. ;) Actually, you can use any apple core or apple from any cart if you don't have Preserves. Have fun with it!
