Hello all! Today I am thrilled to be playing in this week's F4A184, which is to use primary colors... at least one. I chose red, and to go along with the school idea we all have in mind right now... I used this awesome apple image and sentiment from a set to be released Sept. 1 at Our Daily Bread designs. This set is called Apples and is really a fun one to color! The sentiment is cut with the custom ODBD die called Recipe card and tags die set.
My base is craft, the image is stamped with Memento and colored with copics and cut with a SB die. The embossing folder is SU!, and the dp is Acorn Hollo by Little Yellow Bicycle and We R Memory Keepers. I finished off with some May Arts twine.
Have a great Labor Day weekend all my US friends!

Grace, I LOVE this! What a delightfully colored apple image! Love the layout too, and I'll probably be singing that song all day now~ Beautiful indeed! Oh, I was just thinking how every 9/1 I change my decorations to fall, and most of them are apples. Maybe I'll do it today instead....

What a simply fabulous card for this time of year. I love everything about it, Grace. I am especially fond of the sentiment which I use a lot with my grandchildren.
