Autumn Apples

I think fall may be my favorite of the seasons. It follows those hot days of summer with cool breezes and a beautifully colorful display of leaves. It proceeds those bitter cold days of winter and trudging through the snow (can you tell I grew up in Michigan?). Ironically here in South Carolina we rarely have bitten cold days or snow through which to trudge. But… I think this love of fall goes back to growing up in Michigan and viewing fall as the in-between days. Fall days were filled with trips to the apple orchard where fresh cider was being made, fall festivals with clam chowders and pumpkins, apple pies and piles of colorful leaves.

In the spirit of my childhood days in Michigan I made this card, Autumn Apples. The card features a basket and apples from the Doodlecharms cartridge. You will only need two cartridges to make this card, Doodlecharms and Plantin Schoolbook. The cut file contains five pages, the first being a preview only and should not be cut.

The cut file can be found in the list of free downloadable cut files on the left side of the blog page, down a bit. Click on the name of the file and follow the link to Media Fire.  You can then download the cut file to your Cricut projects for future use.

Happy Autumn Apples!
