Hello my friends!! It's posting day for the Avocado Arts Pit Crew Too and we are excited to bring the September stamp set to you!  This set, Grateful Season is so perfect for this time of year - back to school, Fall, Thanksgiving approaching, etc. - but it will be so great all year long!

I was inspired to create a card that would be perfect for the teacher but I also think it feels a bit patriotic.  Veteran's Day is not too far away, and really, it's never too late to say "thank you for your service!"

I used Authentique's Glory collection to piece the apple and make the squares with 2 corners rounded.  The apple is perfect for paper piecing, but will look amazing colored too!

I added a bit of burlap with a button to balance the top corner.  I like the black accents picked up from the black ink - gives a bit of pop, no?

Visit these fabulous Pit Crew Too ladies today for more Avocado Arts inspiration!
