It must officially be Fall.....

...because I was inspired to bake my first ever apple pie. I'm not quite ready for making my pie crusts from scratch so I bought the refrigerated kind, but it turned out great. I opted for the crumb topping instead of the second crust and I think it was the right move. I had to take a picture quickly before my bf cut into it--he had been pacing around from start to finish, waiting impatiently for pie.

After a little pie a la mode, I attempted to work on this week's challenge card for PTI. My new kitty Lucy was a little better this time so it was a little easier than my last card. Kim provided us a sketch for a holiday themed card. I hadn't had a chance to play with my latest Papertrey goodies yet, so I incorporated them all into this.

Paper: Ripe Avacado, Ocean Tides, Linen Vellum (PTI), Frost (Memory Box)
Ink: Ripe Avacado, Ocean Tides, Dark Chocolate, silver paint pen
Stamps: Merry & Bright (PTI)

I just got Merry & Bright and the Additions set with this last order and I can't wait to try all of the different tree combinations. I think this is going to be my "go-to" Christmas set for a while with all of it's possibilities.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a great weekend.
