CCM Saturday Blog Hop - Go Green

Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is Go Green, and I suppose Connie and Mary were thinking of St. Patrick's Day (or maybe recycling?). Unfortunately, I waited too long to order the Lucky Clover bundle and the punch sold out very quickly. There's a lesson in there - don't wait if you want something! So instead of St. Paddy's Day, today I'm going green with green apples. 😊

The Apple Harvest stamp set carried over from the July-Dec mini and is available online. The Apple Blossoms Dies did not and are on clearance for $14.00! These die cut apples are popped up on a Basic White Stylish Shapes circle, which is adhered to a Granny Apple Green stamped Rays of Light (also die cut) circle.

I find that a vellum layer darkens the color under it, so I put Parakeet Party behind the embossed vellum to closely match the Granny Apple Green mat behind it. They both measure 3 3/4" x 5", and the G.A.G. mat measures 3 15/16" x 5 3/16".

That's all for today - see you next Saturday! Up next is Libby Fens at Libby Stamps. Or click the "back" button to go back to Lori at Loritamarie Crafts. Now, if you don't mind, I'm off to find a nice crisp Granny Smith apple to munch!
