Apple Tree scene....

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone! Today is the big day!
I'm home schooling Hunter today! He asked me Saturday
night if we could start tomorrow (Sunday)! I giggled a little
and told him that it was gonna be Sunday.... and he said Oh!
OK Mom we can start on Monday! LOL Of course I told him
that was fine and last night I was reading my teacher guides
to prepare for today's lessons. He has a couple of tests to take first
for the school. It's to let them know where he's at in learning.
This way they can add more work or take some away, depending
on how he does with the testing. Hopefully I'll get some crafting
in while he takes his tests! I did get some crafting done
this weekend, would have liked to get a little more but
hey.... that's the way it goes! LOL Here's today's project!

I hate to say this with all of you still in the heat!
But it was actually chilly yesterday where I'm at!
Remember I live near the mountains and our Summers
aren't as hot as most! It actually felt like a "Fall" Day!
So I created this card for the occasion! :o)

Card stock, Designer Background Paper, Ink, Punches - Stampin' Up
I used Bo Bunny Double Dot paper for all the cuts!
Pearls - Kaiser Craft
Sentiment - Computer generated
Cartridges - Stretch your Imagination (Apple Tree) Cut @ 3 1/2"
Sesame Street Season - (Sun) Cut @ 2"
(Leaves) Cut @ 1" (4x's each)
Create a Critter (Grass) Cut @ 1" (8x's)

Here's the side view to show all the added dimension!
I popped up the green in the tree, leaves, grass and 1 apple!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you liked my card!

This is very cute fall card. Love the apples and the leaves. Maybe we'll get some rain and cooler temps soon. I know you are both going to enjoy home school.

Ok... So I would have never, in a million years, thought to use that tree image on an autumn card, but I absolutely love it! It's exactly what you want fall to be! Beautiful colors, but still lots of green! It's just amazing!!!

Sharon said...

Oh how I long for Fall!!!!!!!!! We are in the 90's again today. They said on the news a few minutes ago that we were just 92, like we are having a cool front or something!!!
Hahahaha I so love your card. Such the perfect Fall scene. Colorful leaves, apples and the sun burning off the frost.
Hope you and Hunter have a wonderful first day of school. I know you are going to be an awesome teacher!!! :)
