Patchwork Pumpkin

Woo Hoo! I made another one! Two in one week is a roll for me.......and I have ideas for others. So maybe I'm out of that creative slump!

This card is made from 1 1/2" squares of cardstock, embossed, patched together, and connected with a black Sharpie. The pumkin, leaves, and acorns are from Create a Critter. Added some Creative Memories silk leaves and a jute bow. Details in marker....and a little bit of bling! A bit of a Fall patchwork jumble!

This card fits the Fantabulous Cricut challenge of leaves this week. I love Fantabulous Cricut and used to serve on their DT until my health caused me to quit. It also fits My Sheri Crafts Challenge of stitching, even if it is faux. If you've never been, hop on over to both places for great projects and tips.

Happy Birthday Mom!

Hello Bloggers! Well, it has certainly been a while for me doing any bloggin' or scrappin', but hopefully that is changing. I put together this card for my Mom's birthday today. It had been so long since I have scrapped that it took FOREVER! but I like the final outcome. Used ZooBalloo for the flower stem....Walk in my Garden for the flowers......a distressing embossing folder for the leaves....and Swiss Dots on the flowers with some ink. The sentiment is Stampin' Up on a Stampin' Up punch.....paper is ColorBok......and did I mention pop dots??? Well, I used a couple...or a few....or LOTS of those! And tied it all up with a little ribbon bow!

Here's the dimensional view:
