So enjoy the garden tour. Here is the garden tour guide list:
•Alyssa  (that's me!)

Hi everyone!  When I think of fall, I think of sweaters, cider, a book by the fire, jumping in a pile of leaves and back to school.  For my card today, I thought I'd celebrate that back to school vibe.  I used this sweet image from Princess for a Day to make a thank you card.  Normally, she is holding a little frog.  I used a little wipe to un-ink the frog and a multiliner to draw in an apple.  She is colored with Copics.  The apple is cut with the Plantin Cricut cartridge - stem is colored and the leaf is paper pieced.
The inside uses another apple and a simple little *thank you*.  Hope you enjoyed the hop!  If you're just getting started here, bop on over to Cathy's blog to start at the beginning.  Make note of each designer's name and word and email them to Cathy for a chance to win! 
My word is SWEATERS.  Thanks for bopping by!!  :o) alyssa
