Apple Cider and Doughnuts

Can you imagine such a combination? Until I'd lived in New Hampshire for almost three years was I finally brave enough to try that. Trust me on this... it's NOT all it's cracked up to be. lol There are folks who LOVE this about the fall season. What I love about apple cider with doughnuts is that I know it's fall and I love fall. I love everything about fall. The weather, the activities, the colors... to me... IT IS the most wonderful time of the year! :)
So when I saw this image with DeeDee's monthly progressive challenge, I was in heaven! There's more to the set, but these apple mugs spoke to my heart. I've used the precolored image because I am trying to beat the clock!
Teehee... it's a twisted easel card:
Here's a top view so you can get a better look at the bottom panel:
I'd like to enter my card into these challenges:
Here's the Digi of the Month Stamp Set:
I'll tell you what about Doodle Pantry. I love DP! Last month, I mistakenly purchased the featured product and thought I'd learned my lesson. Well... apparently NOT! I did it again this month! When I hit the PayPal button to pay for my purchase and as I was waiting for the green light, I wondered to myself why the Cheer Spirit Set was only $2.50... and bam! I was hit by lightening. No light bulb going off this time. I clicked back on to look at the set and there in bold letters were the words I was dreading to read: Cheer Spirit - Featured for DPDC50 challenge. :\ Think I've learned my lesson THIS time? I hope so! I guess we will find out in October! :\ Anyway, I figured, well, I'll enter with another stamp and hopefully... win...  lol Always the optimist! :)
Here's the sketch:

Thanks for stopping by! 


  1. It gives me a tooth ache just thinking about it. But it is good. Love your card, love the sketch flipped like that. Looks wonderful. Great papers too. Thanks so much for playing along with my sketch challenge this week!

  2. I've actually never even had it before so I'm going to take your word for it! LOL! Don't think that cider is real big down this way. I DO love your card though. SO pretty and it's a great take on the sketch too. So glad you're playing along with us at Deedee's Digis!

  3. Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of cider, but I'm loving autumn, and of course donuts are always good :) I love how you've mirrored the image to make two mugs, and one day I want to learn how to do that! What a great look on this twisted easel card! Thanks for playing along with Deedee's September challenge - see you in October:)
