A Bad Apple in Every Orchard

Da Muddermark has us traveling to an apple orchard today in Rockingham County today to help save Annie Mae Appleseed (a direct descendant of Johnny). Annie is a professional apple picker and it seems she's bein' picked on by some of the other [bad] apple pickers who resent her new ways and the beaucoup bucks she's makin' over them! You can get the full story here.

This is the inspiration teapot:


Bertie is on her way with apple martinis to help out the Apple Dumplin' gang to save Annie Mae (who, by the way, has promised Bertie and her tea party pals a bit of cashola for stampin' supplies! Woot!). Some of ya might want to wear protective head gear in case the shennanigans resort to bad apple flingin'. My friend, Moxie, is gonna be there, too, and she use to be a professional baseball pitcher, so beware!



Hey! Ya wanna know how you make a bad apple turnover? Push it down hill!!!! Bwa-haaa-haaa-haaa!

I used my Kittie Kits Cause a Scene (Master #1) from Rubbernecker to create my scene today based upon the inspiration teapot Cindy gave us. I used my double circle punch for the apples and the Stampin' Up cloud template for my sky. Most of the image is stamped with Stampin' Up inks except for the tree trunk and fence, which were colored with Copic markers.

Blue martinis, apple martinis - anyone would think there was some theme going on here! DH loved this - he liked mine but when he saw the teapot,he didn't think it related to the challenge, whereas yours did. Hmmphh. I should have pointed out that you have no ladder - or that you've turned it into the fence!!

Charlene.......have you seen Gertie? She's gone missing since. I have seen her since we we found her in Annie Mae's mother-in-laws stamp room! I was gonna call the sheriff to see if she's been arrested for lifting stamping supplies, but I am sorta enjoying the peace and quiet!

I came here to see if Bertie was around, I suspect those two are together somewhere!

You card was so precious.....did you see Kittie at the teaparty? Hope Bertie didn't nail her with an apple on her first visit!

Mothermark said...

Okay, I agree...I shoulda proof read that!
