"Grateful"


I live in a beautiful valley that is known as "The Valley of Plenty". It truly is the valley of plenty. We are known for our beautiful orchards, but the truth is they have given way to subdivisions. (But, that is another story!) As a teenager I worked in the orchards thinning apples and picking them to earn money. So, I fell in love with this little Tilda. I used my Creative Memories circle cutter to frame her with the warm golden fall colors. I added panels of scrap paper that have the yummiest fall leaves. My flowers I found at the local Dollar store and just pulled the center out, added a brad and glued on my card. i thought the colors were perfect for this card. I used my Nesties to cut the frame for my SU sentiment. The inside of the card sentiment is from Our Daily Bread. This is the first set I every bought from ODB and it is still one of my favorite. Like the card says, "I am grateful for being so abundantly blessed in my life"! Blessings to each of you! I am entering this card at the following challenges:

This is just darling! Love the fall colors! I live in a valley too.... how weird is that? Our valley is know for it's silver, hence it's called the Silver Valley!

It is very sad when the subdivisions take away our food sources. This is a lovely card celebrating the apple harvest, and I like how you used flowers from the dollar store and modified them for use on a card, I may try this out!
