and it will make your mouth water for sure!


Introducing...'Apple Pickin' Time'


My coloring skills are pretty basic but I
enjoyed making this tree look full of juicy apples.

I know the sentiment is a pretty well-known
quote, but I've had an opportunity to think
about it quite a bit this past week.
It is so wonderful to know that I have a 
handful of very close friends that I can
count on and they too, can count on me.
When I placed the ladder next to the tree,
I thought about the names of those friends
who I would climb that ladder for, so this
was a beautiful set for me to enjoy.

Make sure you visit The Craft's Meow blog
and check out the rest of the design team's
projects.  You will get a real taste for this set
by the time it is released on Saturday! 

You can also win a set, 
so make sure to leave
a comment before you leave.  
TCM will be drawing a name 
each day
and you never know 
it could be YOURS!
