The vines were just as pretty as the pumpkins....
I even posed a few pumpkins for some *senior picture* poses.....aren't they cute?
I can't wait to set them all out around the yard for decorations. We'll definitely be planting more pumpkins and gourds next year!!
All these pumpkins inspired me to make some cards using Karen Lockhart's Pumpkins in a Wheelbarrow stamp. It's one of my favorite images to color for Fall. I used Copics for my coloring and then layered the images onto Square and Scalloped Square Spellbinder's Nestabilities die templates.
I finished off my cards with October Afternoon patterned paper, some Aqua Mist ribbon, sequins and some hand cut scalloped paper from an old book. I love the non-traditional colors on this card....perfect for birthday, Halloween or just a nice Fall greeting card. I've got a few left at the shop too.
Well, after feeding 7 girls a pancake breakfast, I feel like a nap already. It was like a feeding frenzy at the concession stand at halftime of football game. Good Lord Gert!!!!!!!!! Eric had to leave the property for a while and go for a little drive. We had 11 girls here at one time, which included a friend of mine and Eric's mom........he was desperately searching for manly company last night!! But instead he resorted to telling the girls to watch out for bears and mountain lions in the timber.....you know, the typical *scare the pants off the town girls who don't get out to the country much* kind of stories. He also convinced half the girls that they were eating opossum bacon this morning. Maybe that's why half the bacon ended up in the trash.....nice Eric!
Well, I better go see what they're all up to, it's wayyyy too quiet.......or maybe I should just stay hidden for a while and enjoy the quiet!!
