An Apple a Day

As summer begins to wind down and a definite crispness is in the air, I'm beginning to see that the signs of autumn are appearing. Fall apples are arriving at the fruit markets and this little happy Hopper bunny has found an entire basket full to enjoy!

The current House Mouse and Friends challenge #102 is to get "Fruity." Scamper on over to the House Mouse and Friends site and join in the challenge using any of your favorite House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffy stamps that involve fruit in any form.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Stampabilities "An apple a day" Happy Hopper HMLR1047
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz distress ink in Aged Mahogany, Peeled Paint and Antique Linen. Image colored with Copic Markers
