CardzTV Linky Party Go-to Galz Challenge "Pumpkin Patch"

I know I haven't been around too much lately...life and house projects have gotten the best of me. That happens to us all, huh? 
Here it is in October already...I cannot believe it, can you? Although the weather decided it wanted to give us another taste of summer this past week. My granddaughter even asked if she could go swimming and I had to explain that we had closed the pool. She just wanted to know "Why?" lol

On another subject, we have a great challenge for you at CardzTV. It's called "Pumpkin Patch" (create anything that has to do with pumpkins). Challenge will run for 2 weeks and Mary will be giving away a set of stamps to the winner. She is so generous! And seriously, who wouldn't want to win one of her stamp sets?

When I think of pumpkins, I think of Halloween, Jack-o-lanterns, pumpkin picking, Fall and Thanksgiving (to name just a few...lol). So there are plenty of ways to go with your cards and projects, right? Well this is what I came up with:


Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Materials:
Cardstock: Black, Orange, Green and Patterned
Cricut Cartridge Mini Monsters Jack-o-lantern, page 58 (Base, Layer 1 Base and Layer 1 Shift)
CardzTV with Mary Clear Stamps Fall Fun "Piles of Smiles"
Markers; Green, Brown and White
Googly Eyes (Two Different Sizes, 3 of each)
Mounting Tape

I thought this background paper was perfect! Don't you agree? The sign and the top Jack-o-lantern are single mounted. The next pumpkin down is double mounted. I thought you could use this as a Halloween card or an October birthday...actually a "Thinking of You" or  "Get Well Soon" would work also. 

Since we are talking about pumpkins, I thought I would share a photo of my granddaughter when we (Gianna, her father and myself) went pumpkin picking last weekend.


She is getting so darn big! 

Hope you join the challenge.
Thanks for dropping by!
