Autumn Blessings

Just in case anyone is checking, I haven't gone MIA.  I spent the last week doing my "Fall Spring Cleaning."  Since I applied for a few design teams, I thought I'd get my fall deep clean out of the way, just in case....fingers crossed.  Everyone who knows me thinks I'm odd simply because I love to clean.  I find it therapeutic myself.  Anywho...here's what you've probably come for...

I made this one using the September freebie from The Treehouse that they're giving away for their contest.
ETA:  I just found out that my card won me a GDT spot over at The Treehouse, along with a great prize!  Thank you so much!

The sketch is from Pear Tree Designs.

Becky said...

Cleaning is good, if I am involved with challenges I have to have my house in order as well as my stamping space, otherwise I can not create, to busy thinking about what needs to be done. :)

On to the card..this is adorable, love how you did the apples, half eaten, very creative. Thank you for joining us at Stamping Sisters in Christ. Can’t wait to see what you will do on our next challenge.

Good luck on the design teams.:)
