Apples

We have an apple tree. Isn't it romantic? I get these goofy ideas in my head, this one has to be from Anne of Green Gables! :) Anyways, those apples in the basket are from our tree. They are tart and perfect for baking. I thought they would make a nice gift for our day care provider.
I stamped the Apple in Palette (L'Amour) ink first. Then I created a mask and stamped the apple phrase over the top. For the brown, I used Dark Chocolate, the green is Landscape, and the yellow is Lemon Tart. The cordouroy ribbon is from Creative Cafe, the dark chocolate twill is from Papertrey Ink. (BTW How do you like the "classic" Stamp in the Hand stamps? There's a flashback!)
Inside the bag I put a box of Apple Crisp, popsicle sticks, and a bag of carmels.

The card is Scenic Route Sonoma. The Dark Chocolate and Vanilla cardstock are PTI, along with the happy fall stamp. The flourish and apple stamp are from Inque Boutique.
Here is a peek at the cover of the magazine "handmade." It was formerly called, Paper Trends. This is the premeire issue and I am in it twice! I am pretty excited to see it in person!
I also got an email requesting 3 of my cards for the upcoming special Stamp It! Cards issue from Paper Crafts. I am jumping up and down!! Thrilling doesn't describe!!
thanks for stopping by! have a wondeful weekend!

Hi Kim! This is an amazing gift set. I chuckled when you were surprised that we have apple trees. Mind you mine do not look that big or that red and yummy.

Congrats on the published cards! I will have to search for that magazine. Did you know that Michaels no longer allows the use of a coupon on books and mags? Sad...need to find a way to get my fix.
