Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Autumn = Apples and Apples = Cider and that = Yummy for the Tummy

I'm one of those people that eat an apple a day.
I don't know if it makes me any healthier but I love the 
sweet crunch or a really good apple.

Fall is the season where people are invited to apple orchards
to pick their own or buy them by the bushel.  

We don't have an orchard near us where we live in SC.
But, when I lived in Reno, NV, visiting Apple Hill was something
that we did often.  The drive would take us up and around Lake Tahoe 
and then down towards Sacramento, Ca.  It was something that
I always looked forward to doing.   All along this old hiway were
orchards with fresh apples for sale, crafts and lots of places for
fresh baked apple pie.  Yummy!!!

Right now my favorite apple is a New Zealand variety called Jazz.
I can only get these at the local Piggly Wiggly market.  They are
dense, crisp and just the right sweetness.  Love them.   

To make my card I colored with Prisma  Colored Pencils.  The white background
has been distressed with a light brown chalk and the edge distressed with
Tea Dye Distress Ink.  The black border layer is a slightly distressed
black paper and the base card is textured and bright red.
My coloring with colored pencil leaves a lot to be desired.  But, I'll 
keep practicing.  
The digital stamps that I used are from Robyn's Fetish
I used two digi stamps for this card.

35% off sale in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Will and I went to Julian (NE of San Diego) this past weekend and picked apples from the Raven Hill Orchard. Mostly Empires. We also came home with an Apple Pie and some Apple Cinnamon Granola and other goodies. I'm going to make a Granola Apple Crisp. Photos to come.

My favorite apple is the Honey Crisp.

Hi Jeanette. I am certainly in a mood for apples myself. This card looks really yummy.

I just noticed you are from Murrells Inlet, SC. I live in Myrtle Beach, actually Socastee. Aren't we the luckiest people in the world?
