Shabby Apples~The Spendor of Fall

This has been a superb year in Michigan for the apple crop....
There are so many apples on the trees that even the ground is loaded with them....
A blessing, as last year we had a hard frost when the apple blossoms bloomed
making the crops not too plentiful!!
 
I have been "pinning" all sorts of apple "foodies" on Pinterest...
I have been buying bags of apples...yum!
 
So, it was a pleasure to see that this week the theme at
The Shabby Tea Room is "APPLES"
using this inspiration photo....
 
 
I made a card with some "shabby goodness"
 
 
using a paper doily or two.....an apple stamp from a "Unity kit of the month"....
adding some sequins for a bit of  "bling".....
shabby twill tape....
and the best part...
this card smells "yummy"...
I had a bit of creative goodness and I added a tiny cinnamon stick
tied with a piece of twine!
 
 
Also want to thank The Shabby Tea Room once again for choosing
my card for last week's Top 3...
so very honored!!
 
I am also entering my card into these challenges:

Love your shabby goodness with the layered doilies and those pretty apples! The gingham and cinnamon bring a touch of country to the shabby, and I love that. Bet this does smell yummy!
