Lawnscaping card challenge #22!!


just a quick post tonight as it's getting late and I'm starting to droop!

here is my (very last minute) entry for the current Lawnscaping Challenge #22!! 

At first, I'll admit, I couldn't think of anything at. all. I love apples, I love autumn...but nothing came to mind. So I just let it stew for a bit (pardon the pun!) and this is what I came up with.
Apple tree + sack card

A cute little card, mostly very self explanatory. The only part that I can think might need explaining is the apple sack, which is an ATC sized piece of Sticky back canvas that I 'painted' with Frayed Burlap Distress Stain and then stamped on using Momento Ink and Lawn Fawn Sally's ABCs (my new favourite alphabet!!)  As you can see, I couldn't resist using my new Houndstooth stamp from Hero Arts on the tree either :)

I tied some jute twine around the corners of the canvas to make it look like a tied sack, but that ended up being removed because I had to re-size it. I still feel the twine would be a cute look so I might attempt it again on another card.

Here is the inside:

Here are the products I used:


One last thing before I go, a big thank you to my gorgeous friend Joy who helped me re-snazzy up my blog and bring Christmas to it too--thanks so much for all the time you spent on it honey! (make sure you pop over to her blog too to see what she's done there!)

Anyhoo that's it for me!

I hope you like it :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
