Good Morning Everyone.....hope your week is going well. I managed to complete a card last night....after I watched a movie with Jordan. He is on fall break this week so we had to do a movie night. I finally got Dan Brown's new book but haven't had a chance to open it yet...maybe tonight.

Todays card is covering 2 challenges. The first is for Stamp Something which said your card "has to do with things from the Fall/Autumn Season. We'd like to see you create something inspired by apples or teachers or school." Well I got the fall colored papers and I included apples.

The 2nd challenge is for this weeks sketch challenge at Whiff of Joy. Rach provided this weeks sketch and it is a great one...

I love cards with lotsa layers and my card sure does have em! The prize offering this week is pretty special too- Katharina is offering the new winter club stamp kit -it has not even been released yet!! Simons Says Stamps is also offering a gift certificate!

If this years winter set is anything like last years it will be pretty spectacular!! They're definitely some of my favorite stamps.

I used my WOF apple tree stamp-perfect for a fall theme, don't ya think.

Supplies Used:

My background dp and checkerboard dp are both from Graphic 45- I just love their papers!! The striped paper is actually Christmas paper I picked up last year. I used ruby red and kraft cardstock from SU. The sentiment stamp is also from SU- it reads "good works are links that form a chain of love-Mother Theresa. I thought is was the perfect sentiment for a thank you card. My flower was cut with my cricut & the flower center is a fabric yo-yo with a SU build a brad. I love the build a brad concept!!

Thanks for looking and I hope you have a great day & manage to fit in some crafting.
