Lovely Basket Full of Thanks

OK, so when I woke up Saturday for the 2nd time after getting home from work we ate lunch then headed to Shannon's to see the grands. I fell asleep in the chair and she made me go home (insert pout) LOL. I tried so hard to stay awake afraid I would not sleep during the night. Well that was not a problem. I went to bed at 8:30 and got up at 6am which is almost my usual wake up time anyway. So I checked out the challenge and headed upstairs.
This is for today's FEATURED STAMPER - Stampfilled Dreams. I used Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE for my layout and Saturday's PAPER CRAFT PLANET'S COLOR CHALLENGE by ASHLEY BOWEN for my color combo. I chose to CASE Barbara's MANY BLESSINGS CARD. I changed the theme, colors and layout. I used the basket and applies from Basket full of Fun and the big single tree from Lovely as a Tree. I colored the ground wtih certainly celery then drew some more grass lines with old olive. I had to hand write my senitment. One day my printer will be working and I will try my hand at computer generated sentiments. The basket is popped up then the handles are popped up over the basket and 2 sets of apples colored alike are popped up as well. Tied some olive sheer ribbon on the side adn her it is. Hope you like it. Barbara has an amazing gallery and I will be CASEing her again but for now I have to get gone. DH and I are hitting the road for a day of fun together. I almost slept the day away Sat bc I had to work 11/7 Friday night so I have some serious making up to do. LOL.

Love how you did the perfect background for this and then made the basket of apples pop right out. Terrific card. That tree stamp you used is one of my very favs!

This is awesome, Neva. Perfect for this color combination.
I didn't know you were a Georgia girl! My brother lives about a half hour south of Macon and my brother in law and niece went to the University of Georgia. Small world!! I LOVE Georgia, especially Savannah.
Best wishes to you for a very happy New Year!
