Autumn Pumpkin





It's the weekend again! Where did the week go? We certainly were busy, and my daughter now has her first official cold of the school year. That only took a week and a half! And nothing bugs my daughter more than a stuffed up nose (Mom, I can't breaaatthhhe!).

Besides playing Dr. Mom today, I'm planning on working on a few projects around the house and getting out the rest of my fall decorations. I just can't hold back any longer! I also wanted to share with you my favorite card for Purple Onion Designs (POD) this month:

I made this little pumpkin using my oval Nestabilities dies from Spellbinders. I used the Vintage Damask Background stamp for the cool pattern. I love this stamp! The stem is a little piece of ribbon and the tendril is a tiny sliver of a piece of brown cardstock that I curled with my bone folder - just like scissors and curling ribbon. The leaves are courtesy my new punch from Fiskars, inked all up in fall colors. I just love how this little pumpkin turned out! I'm definitely making more of these.

Well, I better get back and check on my little patient. She is suggesting that I take her "thermometer" (I'm pretty sure she means temperature), and she also wants some of the "I can't breathe medicine," also known as Sudafed. They catch on quickly, don't they?

So gorgeous...love the pumpkin idea :) It's funny, but last night I was trimming some paper and had even smaller strips come off curled...I thought it would be a fun embellishment, but didn't take it any further...I love your idea with the pumpkin tendril...now I'll have to try it :) Thanks for inspiring :)
