Happy Saturday stamping friends. Wow, it is already 7:00. I wanted to make this pumpkin I have seen in several places but can't remember where. So if it was from you let me know and I will link it to you. I made mine a bit different that what I remember. Oh, does it ever feel like fall here today. Very windy and cool temps and leaves dropping and blowing around. I have been doing a mix of things today. I went to take garbage into town this morning and stopped by to drop off a birthday card for my old boss. I was going to get my hair cut too but the shop was closed. On my way home my neighbor wanted me to take some of his tomatillos so I made Salsa Verde today. It was good but I had to add more hot peppers for my liking. It doesn't have any vinegar in it so I couldn't process it so I will be giving it away and eating it myself. YUMMY! I had it on my avocado and tacos for supper. Pretty tasty. Give me shout out if you want the recipe.
For my card I used the Large Oval punch and the Polka Dot Parade DSP and then sponged around the ovals with Pumpkin Pie ink. I made the stem by using the Timber Wheel in Chocolate Chip Ink onto Chocolate Chip Card Stock and then textured it with the Woodgrain EF. I add the Linen thread that I had wrapped around a pencil for a while and snailed it to the back. It was really pretty easy and I love that "Thanks is for Giving" stamp from the Seasonal Sayings Set, don't you? I felt like I had dots before my eyes with all the polka dots. Tee Hee. I think everything else is pretty self explanatory so I will give you the info below. This is going to be the make and take for my downline monthly meeting so if you are one of my out of town gals I will be making you one to have as well as the swap cards. For the jar I used the Friendship Preserves and cut it out with the Window Frames Collection Framelits and the DSP on top is Orchard Harvest and I cut it out the the Large Scallop Die on the Big Shot. I am going to give it to my BFF at church tomorrow that has given me so many veggies.
