Lots of Heart

I know a sweet family that owns an apple orchard.

Oh, the goodness that flows from this family  and their land!!!

Yummies that their store offers ...

apple pie,apple cider,apple butter

and caramel apples!

I used a circle punch for the apple and caramel, and cut away from there to shape the dessert.

There is slit in the apple where I inserted the mini craft stick.

I tried to make the caramel as glossy as possible with Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel.

The apple got one layer and the caramel confection got three.

My daughter said she could just take a bite out of it.

I figured it had reached its realistic potential for that comment. ;)

Oh, my sweet family that encourages me everyday...what a blessing you are!

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping in. ;)
