Late But Worth It

The Doodle Pantry September release is here - a few days late but worth it.  Such lovely sets again this month.  You must hop over to the store and see these new sets. 
I chose to work with the beautiful set "Apples".  As I told Laurie, how could I not do Washington Apples?  My State and with relatives owning some of the largest orchards in Washington?

For this first card, I colored one of the single apples with pencils and used some of the digital paper in the set. 

This is the sketch I used found at 2 Sisters turned on its side:

I made the plaid background paper - love reds and browns together.  Don't you love this sentiment?
I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
2 Sisters - sketch
Pink Gem - 2 backing papers
Sister Act - anything
Great Impressions - fall colors
Word Art Wednesday - anything uplifting

For the second card, I used one of the pre-colored images, another piece of the digital papers and a piece from another D.P. set. 
The embossing folder is Cuttlebug and the flower that I thought would look like an apple blossom is a Verve stamp.  The base is GKD  Green Jelly Bean cardstock.
For this card I used the sketch at Mojo Monday 
Other challenges for this card:
Sister Act - anything
Cards Galore - color inspiration (green, yellow, pink)

Here is a pic of the whole set which comes with pre-colored and lined digitals.
Thanks for sticking with me through this long post. 
I'll probably back again today with another card for the OWH VCMP challenge.
See you then.
