Love You to the Core!

Hi everyone,
It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Lois Bak our challenge hostess for September continues to bring us fun challenges.
Today is Johnny Appleseed Day. Let’s make a card using some kind of fruit (extra points for apples).
I guess this week I can claim extra points LOL … not that I get anything for it hehe! As I used an apple for my image and also there are apples on my designer paper and I also have an apple related sentiment.
For my card this week I used a House Mouse stamp (mine are soooooo neglected! As you can see I have created a flip it card using my Sizzix Flip it dies. Normally I would select a smaller frame to use for the image to attach to the centre part of my card, as I normally like the border around my image. But doing that for this image would have meant losing too much of the image, so I selected a frame the same size as the centre.
Here is the flip side of my card. I created the sentiment in the centre on my computer.

Nice design on this cute, cute card, Frances! And you're right -- we should get something for the extra points. How above a little extra love!

What an adorable image, and what a really great use of the flip-flop format, too. Hey, I think you have one apple less than you should have on your card!!!
