Just back from a FABULOUS weekend with my family!  We went to Carter Mountain Orchard for apple picking and everything apple plus Bold Rock tasting.  The apple cider donuts and cookies were divine!  Definitely a cheat day for me - LOL!  That evening we went to a pretty little pedestrian mall with a beautiful cobble stone walkway lined with shops and restaurants in downtown Charlottesville.  They just happened to be having a Trick or Treat event there for children and the families that came in group costumes were AMAZING!  So much fun.  I miss those days with my girls!

If you ever are in the area, it is definitely worth the visit!  Just look at this view behind my girls and I.  Those are vineyards right behind us and then the orchard beyond that.

It was strange to transition from my fall fun-filled weekend to Christmas cards, but I just had to use my favorite Foil Snowflakes again.  They sure are getting a lot of play here in my studio!  For this card, I let this golden baby and the gorgeous Year of Cheer Specialty Paper take center stage.  Each layer is popped up with Dimensionals and the sentiment is embossed.  All the measurements are below in the card recipe if you'd like to try it out!
