I've been on the most wonderful vacation! Our entire family rented a cottage on the Outer Banks and spent the whole week there! The weather was GREAT and we all had a wonderful time! I always hate to say I'm away from home on line before the fact, because you just never know who is looking... if you know what I mean. However, now we are back and I'm over-flowing with gratefulness to God for allowing us to have such a great time!
Anyhow... for now... I want to share a card I made for a sketch challenge on SCS. This uses this month's ODBD release, Apples, as well as the mini image that matches it from the Garden Minis set. I made my background layer with the mini and just lightly colored the small images to match my larger one. I left off a sentiment to allow a more personal sentiment on the inside when I send it. The card is A2. The base is Kraft, the designer papers are We R Memory Keepers Anthology and Memory Box Twiggy. The foliage die cut is Spellbinders. One little button and twine are the only embellishments, but give it an earthy feel. Now I really want to go make an apple pie!!!
I love fall because of the beautiful colors... the brisk temperatures, and the yummy fruit and veggies of the season! Apples are definitely near the top of that list! Hopefully soon we will take a trip to the mountains and find some locally grown apples!
