Apple Addict

To mark the beginning of Rosh Hashana, there's an "apple and honey" challenge going on at Cooking with Cricut.  My youngest is the BIGGEST fan of apples that ever there was so I couldn't let this challenge pass me by.  My son eats several apples a day (sometimes up to 6) and recently did an entire English assignment using only apples as his examples!  It was quite creative! 
My son helped me design the shirts on my Gypsy and took part in the production as well - although I did all the ironing.  The first shirt uses the apple from Wrap It Up and the letters are from Mickey Font.  The red and green vinyl are flocked and have a lovely texture to them.
The second shirt was created using a little character from Car Decals and the same apple, although my son said that the leaf should be off if the little character was eating it - so no leaf on the apple for this one!

I figured that "my honey" in his apple shirts suited the Cooking With Cricut challenge perfectly!!  L'shanah tovah to all who celebrate Rosh Hashanah!
