The Apples in one Seed

Apples

Hello everyone!  I hope you are enjoying your week!  We are enjoying beautiful weather here in NC.  Warm days with cooler nights.... oh I love fall!

Anyhoo.... just wanted to share one of the most CAS cards I've ever made!  I made this with this month's Our Daily Bread designs Apple Seeds, from the Full of Grace Series.  I purchased this designer paper from my local stamp store and fell in love with the embossed image!  However, it was a 12 x 12 sheet (of unknown manufacturer) and the basket border went around the whole thing.  I cut out the basket border for two sides and adhered it onto the main panel.  I simply stamped the sentiment right on the image, sponged my Prismatic base and the image panel with Distress Ink, pierced around two sides, and  I punched two holes to add my twine.  This was SUPER quick!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Creative Belli - #125 string, For Fun Challenges -  red brown yellow, Little Red Wagon - #98 twine, Papercraft Star - #62 anything goes, Crafty Boots - Anything Goes, Lexi's Creations Autumn/Fall, Squigglefly - Colours: Red and/or Orange, Critter Sketch - Photo Inspiration of fall leaves and colors, Come and Get It Challenges - Colour Combo* Red, Brown, Orange, Crafty Pad -  Autumnal colors: Brown, Orange, Gold, I Did It Creations - Anything Goes, One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes, Sentimental Sundaysmust include a Sentiment - Autumn/Fall, The Hybrid Chick Card Caravan - Use Twine


Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to let me know you were here! 
hugs,

Absolutely drop dead gorgeous. I can't say enough for this, the colors, the mat, everything. You hit it on the nail. That is what fall is supposed to look like. However there are fall that are way too short for me. Congratulations on a winner.

i love your color choices. i would have bought this month's bread basket, but this stamp is what stopped me. while i like what it says, i am not of the "power of optimistic thinking movement". I love everything that you do, if you have any influence over the choices that they pick,it would be great if they choose choices that represent the whole gospel. I hope you understand what i am saying, it seems what i have read by what you have written you might understand. I love your work so much. i see your heart's expression in your work. I have so many friends who are lost, that i want to redeem my time carefully with the truth.
