A note of thanks....

Hello Friends,
I have a couple of cards to share. These two  cards have Retiring products that I'm sad to see RETIRE:(  You have ONLY one DAY to purchase any of these retiring products HERE before they are gone for ever... 

Super cute APPLE right?? I saw a tutorial at SpiltCoast Stampers and I just had to make one for my son's teacher.  
The apple was created using the HEART PUNCH and the bird builder Punch for the leaf and stem.
I used the Top Note Die for the base, I then sponged Pink Pirouette from a negative Labels Framelits to create the shading behind the flower. The flower and the sentiment are two different stamps retiring along with the Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz.
