Nicecrane Designs: Apple Pie II

Hi everyone!   It is just pouring here in California!   I have a day off and just want to snuggle up in my craft room, do some art and keep warm!   Brrrrrrr!   I am not used to this  since I moved to California.  

I just wanted to show you a new vintage digital design by Graphic Designer, Ignacio Molina called Apple Pie II.   It is just perfect for all of you vintage lovers.    You can find this digital in a downloadable format at Nicecrane Designs.

Ignacio's wonderful images are created from illustrations by famous historical artists. You may recognize them.   Take the time to check out his site and see all his wonderful colored and uncolored digital images!    The Apple Pie series I selected to use for my DT card was originally published by the McLoughlin Brothers.  

I am still working on trying to learn to quill better. I added some quilled blue flowers to my fininished card.    If you want to see some stunning quilling, Check out Dr. Sonia's wonderful work at  Cards and School Projects.  I am amazed at Dr Sonia's wonderful work and can spend hours looking at her beautiful designs - not to mention all the other beautiful projects she creates!   

I am linking this card to:

I hope you are keeping warm and healthy.   Out emergency room at work is bursting at the seams!   We are just about maxed out on beds at the hospital.   So the message for today is....  Stay Healthy!

Hugs, and come back soon.   I have a wonderful challenge from Color Me Creative to  tell you about in a couple days!  Don't for get to check out our wonderful  iCopic challenge that is currently going on!
