My Little Red Wagon, TSSC86

Good Morning. I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. Mine was great. I got a couple of cards made this weekend. Not as many as I had planned but it was beautiful here and there was too much to do. I also got some work done on my XMAS cards. This happens every year. I plan out the card and get motivated to work on them in the summer but then they sit there and I loose interest. It doesn't help that since I don't have many to make I tend to make a card that has alot of steps.

I bought this Judikins stamp last year at a convention. I have used it before but never put anything in it. This time I decided to put apples in it for Fall. I have a Stampin Up set that has apples in a bucket. I just cut them out and taped them in the wagon. I cut out a couple of stray apples the stamp had and popped them up on the grass. The reds I used on the apples and the wagon were different and they didn't look good together so I put crystal effects on the apples to make them look good enough to eat. I made this card for Mary Jo's Monday Challenge. The only thing I don't like about it is the grass. I should have colored it in instead of stamping it.

I hope everyone has a great short week. I'm filling in for someone who is on vacation at work so mine will be busy.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like my card. Let me know what you think.
