Harvest Time

Oh, how I have enjoyed all the veggies and fruits from our garden and trees.  Harvest started early this year because of the unusually hot summer we had in these parts.  I've had more squash and cabbage than I have known what to do with.  Nice problem.
The challenge at the Kraft Journal is Harvest Festival, CAS style.
When our children were young, we set aside the 31st of October for a home harvest festival (because we did not do Halloween).  Lots of fun with caramel apples, carving pumpkins, etc.  I miss those days with the kids - sigh!

The cardstock layer on top the dark chocolate base is Buff Ivory.  I love the linen texture of this paper. The digital image is a pre-colored image, Harvest Bounty by Doodle Pantry. After cutting it out and rounding the corners, I then  distressed the edges with a distresser and Tim Holz distress ink.  The sentiment is one of the verses in the Doodle Pantry Pretty Petite Scripture collection.
And finally the Bright Hemp Cord - such bold colors, just right for Autumn.

How will you interpret the Kraft Journal challenge of Harvest Festival?  We would love to see what you come up with.

  4. How fun to see a Doodle Pantry image on your card! I love Laurie's pre-colored images; they make for such speedy cards don't they?!! I love the distressing on the edges. Great idea. Caramel apples are one of my diet downfalls this time of year. Yum! Thanks for sharing your card with us over on the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge. Good luck.
