My Second Favorite Thing About September

Obviously my birthday always take the cake when it comes to September but my second favorite thing is our family APPLE day which we snuck in the day before my birthday- double win! In years past we have been known to make 11 gallons of applesauce in one day. Yes you DID read that right.

This year had a very small crew, even our home canning had a help wanted sign in the window! Even with just Marc, Me and a hand or two from Sidney we managed to make 15 pints of applesauce, 32 cups of diced apples for this fall’s desert of choice Bourbon Apples and 10 pints plus 12 jelly jars of Apple walnut compote (these are going in our 12 bags of Christmas! My favorite apples to use are Paula Red. Never heard of them? They are local and similar to Gala.

The card below does not celebrate apples but sticking with the fruit theme it is a simple stamping card from the Sweet as a Peach Suite. Check back on Wednesday to see a stepped up card from this suite. Pale Papaya and Pear Pizazz on Very Vanilla Thick card stock make this card soft and sweet. The DIST-INK-TIVE stamps do all the work to give depth and texture to the impage and Champagne Rhinestones add just the right amount of sparkle.

Card design CASED from Yvonne Spikmans-Van Bruggen of The Creative Teacup.

This coming weekend we will be pickling garlic with a new beer based recipe! Photos to come. In the meantime tell me what you are doing this month? Are you closing down the garden? Starting cards for Halloween Parties? Or maybe you are really ahead of the game and are planing out your Christmas cards? Whatever your project, cards or not comment below and tell me what has your intrest now.
