Apple for the Best Mom Ever

I love the images from Heather Ellis, both the Pure Innocence and The Boy and The Dog. I used to be a Reading Recovery teacher (before retirement) and really enjoyed teaching the more innocent kids in first and second grade. I think her images portray a lot of the kids I had. Here's one of her images where the boy is holding an apple, in this card, for his mom. I paired it with the colourQ Challenge 135 and the sketch from My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club #69. My Favorite Things offers so many of her great designs in acrylic stamps, including some that were just introduced yesterday.
