Cute Card Thursday -Things That Grow

Good afternoon everyone, I'm hoping to get back to being a good blogger now that I have six weeks off work and I'm making a start with this one for Cute Card Thursday- Things that Grow; The obvious things would be plants etc but really there are lots more things that grow, we look forward to seeing your own interpretations!By heck! This one sure took some doing! I think I may have been a little over ambitious but I'm pleased with the result. I went for trees as my things that grow.
The apple and the trees were cut on my Quickutz Silhouette, there's also machine stitching and some dry embossing (cuttlebug folder). The apples in the barrow are little red gems.
The image is from the George at Work download collection (click the Download Dottie blinkie on the side bar to see more)
Look out for the new collection on it's way soon -LOVE AND MARRIAGE.
