Apple Themed Thanksgiving Card - (NEW RELEASE!!)

Good morning friends

I have a Thanksgiving card to share today - I wanted to use up the rest of the apple printed paper from THIS card posted earlier this month.

The little apple on the circle embellishment is from the Props 7 set, and I think it turned out so cute! The stitched circle and 'chain' are decorator dies that come with the Twist Circle Pop-Up.

This card uses the Twist Circle Pop-Up, one of Karen Burniston's NEW RELEASE dies for Elizabeth Craft Designs. See how the embellishment is on it's side as the card is opened?

It twists and pops up in the centre of the card when it is fully open - so cool. I added a gourd and apple embellishment into the Basket (from the Barrel/Basket Pop-up), then attached the whole thing to the circle in the centre.

Two more of those cute die cut apples were added to the inside.

Into my Thanksgiving card stash with this one.

Today is the day we turn over our keys for our mountain home to the tenants. You can hardly move in our house without bumping into a box or bin of all the things we had to move out of there so the next few weeks will be spent unpacking and sorting.  I never ever thought we'd be going down this path and it's bittersweet. Very. Hubby and I are emotionally and physically drained, which is understandable considering what we've had to accomplish in the past three weeks. We had a lot of help from friends, and that made all the difference.
