October Waltz

AUTUMN HARVEST
If it's waltz time it must be the 17th.
I used the Teeny Trees stamp set since it seemed so appropriate for the Harvest theme.
When I think of harvest and the fall I think of apples.
AND the apples are falling all over the ground!
Someday I would love to travel North and pick my own apples.
It just sounds so homey and delicious.
John and I planted an apple tree in the yard, the animals ate them before we could enjoy them.
Florida really isn't the place to grow apples at least not here in the Tampa Bay area.!
Clean and simple was my goal for this waltz. Lots of dimensionals to pop up the elements and then a wee bit of Glossy Accents to shine those apples.
Thanks for WALTZING by!

Oh how very lovely. Such great designed papers you created that looks wonderful as a background for this adorable tree. The shine you added to your apples really give it nice dimension. Your ribbon treatment is adorable with this design. Awesome job.

Love the frame you created for your tree and, of course, those shiny little apples. There's an orchard 3 miles from my house and fresh picked apples are one of my favorite joys of this season.

It's always a pleasure to see your gorgeous cards Joanne! This is a splendiferous autumn beauty!

There's a place, not far from me, known for its apple orchards... Oak Glen. Everything is in season right now and you can pick your own apples and make your own apple cider blend... and of course, eat fresh homemade apple pie at nearly every restaurant. It's wonderful!
