Newton's Nook: Apple Delights

 Welcome to the third and final day of the
Newton's Nook September Releases!
I love that this stamp set can be used for any time of the year!

"Apple Delights" Stamp Set:

Here is my CAS card with a yummy, homespun feel:
I stamped the mug onto a piece of kraft paper and added some
paper-piecings to it from additional stampings of the image.

The comfy knit print is from Simple Stories' new "Sweater Weather" Collection
 ...perfect backdrop for my mug 'o apple cider!
