I just brought home a ton of apples. I don't know what to do with them yet, but I am thinking of a chutney or something similar. I also have about 5 pounds of concord grapes to contend with. Maybe some jam??? My dad has 8 apple trees, grapes, tons of veggies. We also brought home squash, potatoes, onions, tomatoes.

On to the card.

The apple is just hand cut and then covered with Candy Cane Stickles to simulate caramel.
That gorgeous paper in the background is from K & Company Tim Coffey, Fall.
This card is for Day 192 at 365 cards...SWEET. (The word must be on the card somewhere).
It is also for a Fruity challenge at SoArtful.
And it is Red White and Blue for Cupcake Craft Challenges.

  4. Ooooh Kristen I love toffee apples and you did a great job on this card with the glittery apple and the background paper is lovely indeed. Sorry to hear about your dad Kristen and glad that he is doing well as long as he doesn't overdo things he should heal nicely. How are you doing? Keeping you in my thoughts. Stay well
