I used this super cute 'Nature Bites' image for my card :-)

Well,, apples are traditionally an Autumn fruit and there is a leaf on it AND I particularly wanted to use my new Memory Box Tiny Tendril die as the shape matches the one on the apple   ! :-)

I spent more time deciding on what sentiment to use on this than I did making the card, and then I remembered the die sentiment and thought it is perfect ! Mudpie sure does look happy !! :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some gorgeous cards so please hop on over to the HM&F Challenge to see them :-)

I used to have a house in the country and these house mice would turn up in it, not so cute there but on your card very adorable. Gotta love that little stinker and now that I don't have them in my house any more the sentiment is even more to the point. Enough of my nonsense.
Your card is gorgeous, so well put together. Thank you for joining us at Pile It On. I hope you'll join us again.
