Life's Better Together

Happy World Card Making Day! I hope you find time to craft today. I wasn't supposed to be home today but because of Tom's heart attack last week we cancelled our plans for today to help at a Girl Scout camp out. I'm not too disappointed as the day is rainy, windy, cold and miserable outside. So I am kind of happy to find myself with a nice fire in our fireplace and a warm place to craft the afternoon away. Tom is doing fine physically but he needs to have the meds he's on adjusted. They don't have them right yet. His Dad will be visiting this week so he'll have company as I am working.
Here's the card I made today. I am hoping to get some more time in too. It's been ages since I've had a day to craft.

The background paper is a scrap of Basic Grey. It reminded me of a whole bunch of apples so I thought it was perfect. I used the sketch from i {heart} card sketches with a twist.

The twist this week was too enlarge and crop the image. I actually did the opposite so I'm not using the twist. The image is From the Heart Stamps Apple Market. I colored the image with Copic and Bic markers. I finished the scene with distress ink grass and sky (Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn). I added Wink of Stella to the apples and the banners. The sentiment is from the same set and die cut with MFT Stitched Fishtail Flags distressed with spiced marmalade. I popped the image up.
Entering these challenges:
Thank you for stopping by today. Again, Happy World Card Making Day! I hope you find some time to create. Have a great weekend!

I'm sorry to read about poor Tom, Donna, I hope he continues to stabilise.
Your card is fabulous, I love the gorgeous rich colours. The little image is so sweet and I like the cute sentiment you added. The little flag you stamped it on looks great too.
Cheers,
Beccy
