An Autumn Day!

I have had this stamp a while now, it has such an Autumnal feel, so this is the first time it has seen ink. I am very into Autumn, Summer is so last season!  The colours are already beginning to change, only thing I dread is the leaves falling, so much work!  Apple pie is a perfect Autumn dessert, we had huge apple tree in our garden a few houses ago and I made apple pies and crumbles every week throughout the Autumn so now I always associate the two.
 I copied a recipe of apple pie from a cook book and then distressed it, tore it etc to give it a vintage look.  This is a good idea if you don't actually want to rip up your book!
