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.

  12. 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 :-)
