But of course!
Happy chilly Thursday from Annapolis! The clocks have been changed, the weather is getting cooler and it finally feels like Fall.
Where I grew up, Fall meant all things apple. Picking, Pies, Cider…….! My Mom used to buy a big gallon of cider after the weather was cool and She would leave it outside to ferment a little. This was a treat, bubbly cider! Umm well alcohol. No wonder I love all things bubbly.
I have another fun Oddball for you today. Apple Cider Oddball. She is a super cute apple cider toting chick!
I really love how her scarf came out. I tend to shy away from the super dark colors, assuming they will be hard for me to blend. I am slowly getting over that. Thank goodness!
I wanted my jug to look like the old earthenware ones the moonshiners would use! Check out those awesome black rhinestones too.
I paired her with some great plaid and solid green paper cut with different layering dies. If you look very close I used the lightest of the red blend of markers for the boot toggles! I do not have the die for this stamp, but I did include a link for it. I cut mine with my Scan N Cut. I did use my Fiskars fingertip trimmer knife to cut between the scarf and her legs and between her legs.
