Apples for Sale!

Hello friends! I've had to accept that it is fall and am enjoying working with my fav fall colors.! I bought this Impression Obsession stamp (Apples) about a year ago and hadn't inked it up. It was so fun to color once I got going! The artist does the important shading so it's not as difficult as it might look. I just love how he hides the cat in the image, too! I used a soft suede card base, then a layer of pumpkin pie and then a textured layer of not quite navy. the image has a white border and is mounted on black. (don't mind that I spelled my own name wrong on the watermark! I'm an awful typist!)

That great plaid ribbon is from Joann's, but I couldn't find it in my Joann's stores. My friend, the talented and generous Mary Giemza sent me some about a year ago. I've been hoarding it fer sure! Thanks, Mary!

My desk was covered with markers on this one! I hope you like it!

For the layout I CASed a card on Splitcoast Stampers. I loooove the Featured Stamper challenge every Sunday!

I'm alos entering in the current Impression Obsession challenge which is to make a birthday card. They are also promoting Operation Write Home this month! A very good cause!

Thanks for coming by today! If you're enjoying a day off today (and even if you're not) have a GREAT day!

Hi Cheryl, Where I live it feels like Fall today so your card is a wonderful reminder of just how beautiful Fall looks. You done an excellent job of colouring. It took me a few seconds to find that little kitty.

your stamp and the colors are so colorful, I never plant apple trees at our garden, our garden is full of vegetables only. You are such a genius to make attractive things.
