Happy Fall!

Hi everyone! We went to the apple orchard down the road today, picked some apples (okay, LOTS of apples, LOL!), and let the kids play in the kiddie play area that's all set up for the fall festival this month. They climbed on hay bales, fed the goats and chickens, chased each other around the pumpkins and mums, and there was a definite fall chill in the air. It totally put me in a fall mood so I thought I'd play some more with Anna's new Give Thanks cling set from Whipper Snapper Designs. Love this tree...so FUN to color!

The tree was stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa, and the leaves were colored with YR04 Chrome Orange and E08 Brown Copic markers. The white oval, brown scallop oval, and punched sentiment are all up on dimensionals. The CS and brown satin ribbon are from Papertrey. The rust grosgrain ribbon is from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts. I stamped one of the flowers from the Give Thanks set on the inside of the card (5 of them) along the bottom edge.

RECIPE ~
Stamps: Give Thanks cling set (Whipper Snapper Designs)
Paper: PTI Select White, K&Company Fall Harvest mat pack DP (from Michael's)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, YR04 Chrome Orange and E08 Brown Copic markers
Accessories: PTI Dark Chocolate Satin Ribbon, Rust Grosgrain Ribbon, Brown half-backed Pearls, Dimensionals, Oval Nestabilities, Scallop Oval Nestabilities, SU Scallop Edge Punch


...now I think I'll go make some apple crisp with some of those apples we got today. My husband has the fever and chills that I had last week, so maybe that'll cheer him up. Okay, okay....and I wouldn't mind having some either. hehe! :)
