What a fun new set!!!  I love all the apple images!!!  They are soooo beautiful and intricate.  I had so much fun using the cute apples.

Here is what I created...
For my first card I found this cute apple paper to use for the cut apple image.

For my second card I used the basket of apples.  I colored and cut them out and placed them on the frame that was stamped with  the frame from "Seed Packet" set.  I added a leaf embossing folder for the background, some burlap, and a leaf punch border.

I hope you enjoyed this months new stamps.  Be sure to stop by Speedy TV and join in our fun challenges.  Free stamp sets are given each week.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the blog hop.  Be sure to visit the rest of the team...
Hugs, Jane
