You are the most wonderful TEACHER!

Hello Friends,
Here with another post as the September Month-long guest designer at The Shabby Tea Room.  Here is this week's inspiration photo:

The Shabby Tea Room - Week #185 "The Splendor of Fall" - create a card or project with an apple theme.
I was so excited to make a project with an apple theme.  I decided to make a Fall card as well as a teacher gift set.

This is a gift set I can give to my son's homeroom teacher later this year for either the Holidays or for Teacher Appreciation Day.  I used the same apple motif on both the card and the felt hanging ornament.  The ornament has a twine hanger attached at the back which doesn't show in this photo.
The ornament is made out of felt and canvas and half of a small doily.  I used the Paper Sweeties stamp set called "You are the most Wonderful" for the sentiment.  The book image with the apple on top is from the set  "So Proud of You".  

 A close up of the card by itself:
 And the sweet apple charm I added to the twine bow:
And here is the "Fall" card which uses Paper Sweeties "Emma" stamp set as well as "Stand Add-on #2" and "So Proud of You".
I stamped a row of the sweet sunflowers and colored them with copics and then added my fence on top of them so they could just peek out over the top.  I then cut one sunflower out and posed it next to Emma in front of the fence.  I added some pretty bow gems to her hair as she is obviously all dressed up for her first day of school!  I am still trying to decide if I want to put a "Back to School" sentiment on here or just leave it as is.  I also added just a touch of "diamond" stickles to the flowers, apples,pumpkins and the bird for a little bit of sparkle!  Inside the card it says "Happy Fall Y'all". 

Thanks so much for taking a look at my guest design post this week for the Tea Room.  I so appreciate everyone's sweet comments on my projects!  I am having fun and I hope you are too!  I hope that you will make an apple themed card or project to play along with us!

Happy Fall!
:) Jill
