Sneak Peaks are here!

Posted by: Jan Marie | September 14th, 2010

Onto today’s peek! When I think of Autumn, I cherish the changing of leaves and the spiced smells of hot cider cooking on the stove. Add Marcella Hawley into that equation and you “meet” our first lovely set that is ripe for fall!


Apple of My Eye Graphic copy

This set not only features a gorgeous cluster of apple blossoms but there are lots of additional images that are perfect for fall creations… a hot mug of cider, a carmeled apple, and… more! Of course, a set wouldn’t be complete without a beautiful array of sentiments to mix and match! Would you like to win this set? Simply leave us a comment sharing with us your favorite thing about fall! We’ll draw a winner and annouce this coming Saturday in our Winner’s Circle!

Here is my card for the Apple of my Eye set.  Simple and direct, but I found it pleasing, I hope you agree as well.

I used Flourishes Classic White paper for the  apple and then colored it with the Copics.  The Nestabilities I used Labels 15 and Lacy Square.  Papers were from SU and 7 Gypsies Victoria.  That snazzy ribbon is from Flourishes store.  The nail heads (they look like brads, but are not) are a new embellishment in the store.  They are self adhesive and oh so much easier than the brads we loved.

Not only will you get some eye candy when you visit the DT’s blogs today, a couple of them have BLOG CANDY too! So, be sure to stop by and say “HI” to them all!
