Just for Fun: Acorns & Apples (T-Tues & OBW)

Hello again!  Today I have a very light-hearted post.  I want to show you a card that I made just for fun.  I used Doodlebug's cute fall collection, "Happy Harvest," which has been appearing in much of my work these days.  This paper collection seems to mix in with my stash perfectly, revitalizing left overs from last year's fall collections (like that Simple Stories squirrel card).  Gotta love it when that happens.
 
Supplies: patterned papers from Doodlebug Design; journaling card from Simple Stories; alphabet stickers from October Afternoon; ribbon from Scrapbook Fantasies; glitter glue from Ranger; corner punch from Creative Memories

I put another squirrel on the inside of the card.
 
Additional supplies for card interior: cardstock from Neenah Paper; border sticker from Doodlebug Design; squirrel sticker from Simple Stories; mechanical pencil.

I'm still enjoying all things fall, including apple cider.  This is a different kind than I showed last week.  It's a local brand, and it's so-o-o-o flavorful.


Look at the way the cider gets a golden glow in the morning sunlight.  Yummmmmm!


I'm linking that last photo up to Our Beautiful World, where the theme this week is "chill."  This cider represents both senses of the word: it is a chilled beverage, and I "chillax" when I drink it.  :)


Hope you get some time to chillax today!  Thanks for dropping by my blog.

Love the squirrel cards Denise! Cute without being too cutesy if you know what I mean. I finished a sweater with squirrels on it this summer I'll have to show you - their teal in color.

I got a big laugh out of that card. It was very funny, and well executed.

That organic cider looks wonderful. It's always good to shop locally. It is something I truly believe in.

Happy T today and enjoy that "sunny" cider.

Such a cute card!
We went apple picking this weekend, and the featured apples were honey crisp and fuji. I had never had a honey crisp apple before. I am sure it's good as a cider!
