Awesome to the Core for Addicted to CAS # 119

 Hi Everyone.  Happy Saturday.

It's the fabulous Doni's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge and she has a food code word for us!

It is such a fun word and we hope that you play along with us this week.  If you do, and you are chosen as the winner, we have a great prize for you:
A 15 Euro gift card from our amazing sponsor - Create a Smile:


Our guest designer this week is a very talented designer - and I have admired her work for years Sweet Kobylkin .  I hope you will visit her blog and check out her bushel of apples!

For my card... well... I have to admit I have no stamps that feature apples.   Nothing.  zip.  nada.  donut!  So... what to do?  Well, I ahd to resort to something that I am absolutely not comfortable with.... drawing my own!   AARGH :-)   Seriously.  It's an apple.  How hard can it be to draw?  For someone like me - who is absolutely not my brother (the artist in the family) - it was incredibly difficult.  However, I decided to just be brave and take out my marker and draw and apple and then color it with my Prismacolors.

Before I drew the apple - I needed to create a sentiment.  So I opened up my word processing software, created the sentiment, printed it out and then drew and colored the apple.   I printed the sentiment onto Bristol Smooth cardstock and die cut it with my wonky rectangles.  I then drew the apple and colored it and mounted the panel to my SU Wild Wasabi card base.

Here's my card:

Atcasapple (1 of 1)

Because I used the Bristol Smooth cardstock, which is pretty lightweight, I noticed that it curled a little at the edges when I ran it through my Big Shot with the die....but, considering the whimsical nature of the die cut, I thought it looked ok :-)  I'll be adding this card to the ones that I am creating for the kids at Cards for Hospitalized Kids and thought the sentiment would be great for one of these amazing kids!

I'll be back with my Paper Players card tomorrow.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

I too love your apple core. A wonderful take on the challenge and I bet some child will get a kick out of this card!


You may think you're not an artist but that's a fantastic rendering of an apple core, Jaydee. You're braver than I am. I restored to a digi that I printed off the internet for my apples.

Wow Jaydee, your apple is great! It looks like a digital image, perfect! Such a cute card and the kids will love it!

Don't ever say again that you cannot draw. The apple is perfect and your coloring spot on. The sentiment is perfect for the card. Nicely done!


You did a terrific job of drawing this apple core...love it!

Barb Ghigliotty

You are so brave to draw your apple on your own, Jaydee...and I LOVE it! I really thought it was a stamp, honestly! I love how you colored it, and your wonky stitched border works perfectly! What a great sentiment, too! I have to say...you nailed it, my friend!!!

Such a wonderful looking card.
You really got right to the core of this. Great drawing of the apple and wonderful coloring. Cute sentiment as well.
Enjoy your weekend
