Willow and the Heart Apple Tree

Hi ya' all!
I was trying to think of some clever title but it just wouldn't work so you get the name of the image I am showing you today- Willow and the Heart Apple Tree by the artist Claire of Hope Jacare Doodles.  She is one of the digi designers that you can find at the StitchyBear Store!  This is actually 2 digis that I merged together.  Which one is Willow?  One Stitich At A Time, Stitchy's Weekly Challenge, has the theme "Girly" this week.  How about joining us?  We adore seeing your makes and you just might win some digis too!  If you are one of those Tom Boy types that I envy, there is lots of Girly inspiration from my talented Teamies on the challenge blog. LOL  (I hope you laugh at that!)

  A closer look at just the images:

Made it the usual way- colored with Prisma Pencils; paper-pieced the middle of the tree and decorated with new Memory Box dies (fantastic  prices from Dutch Paper Crafts).  Hoping you like her.

That's it from this girl this Sunday morning.  I think I may take a computer hiatus for the day...sound good?  Ya right! LOL  Don't forget to look for those bright spots this week.  I betcha find a bushel full!

Thank you, thank you, thank you ever so much to my new followers!  It is wonderful to have friends, isn't it?  No, I don't think I will be on hiatus from my computer because I just know I would miss out on something!  Hate that!  See you in a couple days!

Your friend,
ps Did you notice the cool watermark?  My friend Stacie made it for me and I just love it!  I have lots of different colors, too.  She is super talented and designed this after I described to her sort of what I wanted in an email..not an easy thing to do!   She made this way beyond what I had expected...thank you, Stacie, so much!!!!  I love it...Boop Boop Dee Boop!!!
