Apple Pickin' Time

last week we celebrated the birthday of American legend, John Chapman, more commonly know as Johnny Appleseed.  I teach kindergarten.  And this is one of the most fun times of the year for us.  I love this time of year because I know that it is the first sign that fall is here and the weather will be getting coolor.   You can visit my class blog HERE.  The class blog is for family and friends of our class so they may have a better idea of what we are doing in school.  Typically kindergarteners will answer the question, "What did you do in school today?' with either "Play", "Nothing", or "I don't know".

Here is a card I made while thinking about all the apple activities we did last week.

The basket was cut from the Doodlecharms cartridge.  I inked it with bown, bronze and gold Colorbox ink pads.  I then used a brown colored pencil to add some distress lines to it.  The brads are from Recollections.   The apples were cut from the Country Life and Simply Charmed carts.  

The little sentiment stamps are from K Andrew Designs
The little bee stickers are from Jolee's Boutique.

I made this as a shape card just for a little extra fun.  

Now, I think I'll go and eat an apple and enjoy this pretty fall day.  And guess what, it is much cooler outside!!  I love it!
