Pretty Pumpkin

MFTWSC146Last minute, again--work does get in the way of my crafting--LOL!  Love the current sketch for My Favorite Things.  As soon as I saw it my plan was to use one of the LJD Primitive Pumpkin dies cut with this gorgeous deep orange felt from my friend Rosemary. The Die-namics Royal Leaves & stem are cut from Jellybean Green felt. I matted the pumpkin with the small Die-namics Dizzy Doily cut from kraft cardstock. My printed papers are from Fiskars & Creative Imaginations.  Using second generation stamping with Memento Olive Grove, a leaf & veins from MFT Thankful Leaves was stamped on the green paper.  The sentiment is from the same set (cut apart) & is stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia. 
Don't think I've ever had this many Thanksgiving cards done ahead of time--feels great! I'll add this to The Thanksgiving Crusade.  

We're having a truly glorious Fall with sunshine & blue skies. Snapped a shot from the cafe balcony at the hospital where I work & thought you might enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by today.

I enjoy seeing your photo! It has been so beautiful here - perfect for last minute chores in the garden - work is getting in the way of my crafting too! This card is very pretty and I love how elegant the font of the sentiment is. Hope you are having a good day!

Gorgeous card, Greta! Perfect for the sketch (I missed linking up...too much rushing around!), and perfect in capturing the ravishing colours of fall! A jeweled pumpkin = brilliant! Your photo from the balcony - glorious! We're cloudy and cool, with threats of rain/snow for Sunday. Hmmm...may have to stay inside and craft :-)
