Tilda with Apples

Good Morning Maggie Friends,

It is a sunny warm fall day, just beautiful with
all the bright coloured leaves.
Would you believe we still 
haven't had any rain?
I hear we may get some by 
the end of the week, but not much.

Hope where ever you live the weather 
is behaving itself.

I am back at my Mother's for a few weeks.
Always lots to do for her.

Today of course is our COLOUR INSPIRATION
The Design Team has outdone themselves again!
Please go see my team mates wonderful work.

The month of October is Cathy Lee's turn
to determine what we will do.

Cathy has a wonderful picture to help us 
along this time:

I can't get over the beauty.

So appropriate don't you think?

Time to show you my card:

As you see it is my usual plain and simple work.

I have used APPLE TILDA #3053

My design paper is very old from CTMH - 
but I thought just perfect for this challenge.
The red, yellow polka dot and brown 
were all from the same set.
From my stash I found this wide red ribbon,
the sunflower charm, also the button candy dots.
I also used red stickles on the lace of her dress.
Once finished I wished I hadn't used it - but
what's done is done :o)

You remember my camera is not itself
so my pictures aren't perfect, I just wanted to
give you an idea of what I have done.

Here is a close-up of Sweet Tilda:

the bow:

the right hand upper corner:

the inside - left :

right side:

Our Walmart no longer carries craft supplies,
but I found a few left over Jolies stickers.
These leaves go so well with the colour choice.

This card is going to a friend who has an 
October Birthday :o)

Please join us for this challenge,
one random winner will receive:

You've coloured her so adorably. Gorgeous DP--now I know I have it too. I love it because it's got all the colours of autumn. Pretty leaf stickers.
