an apple a day...

...keeps the doctor away (as the phrase goes)

well ok, perhaps the doctor won't be advising us to drink a bottle of cider a day lol, but I thought of the phrase while I was colouring and layering these images and decided to use it anyway, even if a little tongue in cheek :)

This is my first card as a fully-fledged DT member for Stamps R Us after my recent guest spot. woohoo!
This time our challenge has an Autumn/Fall theme, and we are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish, who not only have a generous prize package for our lucky winner, but kindly gave us images to use on our cards too.
I chose 'Apple Cider' and 'Basket of Apples'.

Once again, I coloured with my promarkers.The sentiment is handwritten onto a round tab (SU punch).
The papers are by First Edition, this collection is called 'summer breeze' yet I think these particular sheets suit autumn better than summer!

Please join me, as well as the rest of the talented Stamps R Us design team, by taking part in our challenge. You've got to be in it to win it! good luck! :)
