Digi Desserts Fridaze - The Apple of My Eye -

Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.
Psalm 17: 8

Welcome to Digi Desserts Fridaze in connection with Cookingwith Cricut / Paper Crafting World!  We, on the Design Team, were to create a project using a Digital File from CWC/PCW for today.  I chose to use the new – and FREE this week! – file, “The Apple of My Eye” that Melin has just designed.  The Apples and Honey that will be featured in this next few days projects are being done in relation to Yom Kippur which is September  25 & 26.  I made a card to share with some of those I love – 

Here is the Card – on white cardstock with a light green border adhered to the right edge.  I used a lacy punch (Martha Stewart) on that edge and then lightly inked it and the remaining edges.  I cut paper mats in green stripe and plain brown.  I punched a small hole at the top of the card and used it to make a notch at the bottom. I inserted the 2 colors of twine, tying a bow.  I added a bee sticker and adhered them together.  I used Crystal Lacquer on the seeds in the apples and added a small gold gem on the apple as a highlight.  I threaded some twine into a heart-shaped red button, tied a knot and adhered a gold gem on top and adhered it to the lower left edge.

Here is the file I used - There are several options included.

Be sure and check out all of the creative Digi and CuttingFiles that Melin has on her site -  Make a project with a Digi File for today’s Challenge – and then post it for all to see!   

If you’d like more information on the Judeo-Christian roots of the holiday of Yom Kippur, I found a link to share that would be quite helpful:
