greetings from Seattle

Post 1 of 2, please see a special birthday post HERE.



Greetings from Washington State!

Taking a cue from the wonderful  kim hughes

fun fact:

 Did you know that each year, Washington harvests over 100 million boxes of apples, each weighing about 40 pounds?


Love the apple stamp from the Paper Smooches Falling for you set!

I paper pieced them with, yes, Basic Grey Persimmon.  

The sentiment is classic A Muse.

I was inspired by 



Have a super week!

Love those apples and your apple story, Amy, my dad used to carry bags of apples on the plane when he visited your state. It was always wonderful when my mom made something special with them. Love your card.

Fabulous paper piercing! I think, those Persimmon papers are calling my name ;) On another note, so true about Google's photo enhancement thing. I don't get that they couldn't even have a pop up or check box to give you advance notice. Anyway, have a great week, Amy! :)
