CDS Sneak Peek "Apple Gobbler"


It is sneak peek time again over @ Clear Dollar Stamps! I love it when we finally get to show the creations we have made for next month's stamps!

The first one I am sharing is "Apple Gobbler".

The image was designed by: guest illustrator Heather Rolin. It is from CDS "Let us Gobble Together" stamp set. It will be available in October.

The cute little turkey has a tummy full of green apples.

On the inside, I have attached a wonderful recipe for Green Apple Cobbler. Of course I changed the name a tad to fit the card!

The cardstocks are Bazzill Dots and Core'dinations. The DP is from K&Company's Fall stack.

Please make sure and check out the other girls sneak peeks by clicking the Clear Dollar Stamp DT links in my left side bar.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

My Time To Craft Challenge #78- Autumn Feast - create a card that has something to do with Autumn.
Mine has Autumn colors, squash, pumpkins, apples, a turkey and an apple cobbler recipe. I think it qualifies. ;)

Creative Card Crew Challenge #29 - Decorate the inside of your card.
I did and even added a recipe! :)

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog - Simon Says "Stitch it up!" - Use stitching real or faux on your creation.
That one was easy for me! I always do! ;)

Creative Inspirations #28 - Autumn/Fall
This card has Fall written all over it! ;)

Stamp Something Challenge Blog - Use your favorite layout or sketch.
I love quilting too and love making cards with a quilt like block such as this one!

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #51 - Animal Antics - Use an animal in your project...the funnier, the better.
This turkey is super cute and super funny! ;)

Thanks again for dropping by.

BTW...please be a sweetie and post a comment! ;)
