Autumn Picking

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a happy Friday! We have been having some beautiful warm Fall weather, and it puts me in the mood for autumn cards!

I really enjoy working with this set from A Chemistry With Paper. It's called Autumn Picking. I love the font, and I think it's especially versatile because it's big enough to use on a scrapbook page, but not too big for a card. The font also embosses beautifully with Classy Copper, and stamps that take well to embossing are always a hit with me! The bushel basket was fun and easy to color and there are three apple stamps to work with, two loose ones and a pile designed to go in the basket.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. We are all going to pile in front of the tv and watch a movie. We have The Bucket List, Pursuit of Happiness, Disturbia, Over the Hedge and a House DVD. We also have some bluegrass concert, but I can't sit in front of the tv and watch music. I can't even watch a whole Dave Matthews concert on tv, there's no way I'm sitting through bluegrass. Now live is another story!!
