Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend! We had a very fun & relaxing one. I can’t believe how gorgeous the weather has been all month! I planted a whole bunch of tulip, daffodil and crocus bulbs in the new garden bed in the backyard. It will be so nice next Spring to see them come up! We also went on our annual Apple Picking trip. We have been going to the same place even before we had the kids so it is a real tradition. The weather was perfect and so were the apples. My little guy was so funny. He keeps calling it the “Applesauce Forest”! We went on a tractor pull ride and the older boys climbed ladders to get the apples at the very top of the trees. Of course tonight we had a yummy Apple Crisp for dessert and tomorrow I think I’ll make a pie. Can you tell I love apples?
I also had the chance to play with more of the cute Tildas from the Fall Kit. They just keep getting sweeter and sweeter. I decided to use this Chef Tilda and create a card. I saw a tutorial for it on Split-coasters and I thought it would be perfect for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge which was to have a hidden message. You can find the instructions here. This is how it looks when you open it up. The little tab pops up with your message! Cute eh?
