Apples, Teacher's and a challenge at BBTB2!

 Good Monday Morning everyone, hope your having a wonderful Monday. We had rain off and on all weekend and should have rain all week off and on here also so I don't know if I'll ever get my garden in! My potatoes are growing but that's all I have in the ground so far (sigh)!

Well as you all know Monday's bring the new challenge over at Bitten By The Bug 2 and this week it is Heather's week to pick the challenge and she picked the Apple Core from the Preserves cartridge. I don't have that cart but there are alot of carts with apples and it was a perfect opportunity to get some things done for McCade's teacher's. These are the cards I made for Teacher's appreciation week. He has two Teacher's so I have to do two of everything. I used the My World cartridge and for the #1 Teacher that is from the Wild Card cart, it doesn't have a shadow feature so I cut another phrase and set if off a bit to give it some depth and have it look like a shadow.
I handmade the flowers, added some dew drops and faux stitching and inking. I also added a sheer red ribbon on both. I sure hope the teacher's like them. I'm working on something else also for the actual gift so when I finish it I'll post later on in the week.  
 The paper is from the DCWV stack called "The Grade School Stack". Very Cute papers and some have glitter on them and perfect for school related layouts, cards and mini books.
Well I sure hope you join us over at BBTB2 in the challenge. If you don't have the Preserves Cartridge, you can use any Cart with an Apple on it (there are plenty, lol) You may win our cute POW (pick of the week) Blinkie to add to your blog, along with bragging rights of course, lol! Hope to see you there! I will also have some Exciting news to share with you soon, hopefully this week but I'm pretty excited about it so stay tuned and I'll chat with you later in the week with the rest of the teacher's gifts and some Exciting news! 

((Hugs)) and Take Care!
