You’re the pick of the patch!

Lili and I agree….YOU’RE the pick of the patch!  It’s that time of year!  Pumpkins everywhere!  So,  I had this “idea” yesterday a.m. (so glad when I have one! lol)  to make this old fashioned looking pumpkin.  Can’t think of what the stuff is called…seems like Martha Stewart sells it… oh, maybe it’s honeycomb???  That is the look I was going for anyway…

I  ♥  it!  I punched 7 Punch Bunch ovals and folded them in half and taped them together.  The stem is a piece of brown card-stock that I rolled around my paper piercer and then glued the end and glued it to the leaf behind… isn’t it just the clever – ist thing?!!! hahahaha…the silliest things make me happy!  The “vine”,  don’t tell anyone but it’s really a holly die cut from Sizzix…ugh… but I liked it as a vine, think outside the box…see you didn’t realize it was holly,  did you?! I don’t really want to know! lol  It’s a cool die…one of those 12 in. long Sizzlets,  has a NOEL on it and a cool frame. The item # of the die is 656293.

My card today is for the Inky Impressions Challenge blog post – “anything goes”… click on over and join the fun!  The challenge is for two weeks,  can’t wait to see what you create!  You gotta top my pumpkin!!! lol

A side shot… (of that pumpkin)  : )

This really is about Lili (leelee) and her pumpkin…not about my pumpkin but I guess I shouldn’t write posts at night cuz I get silly! *cough*  You will find this awesome Lili and the other new releases from Inky Impressions, HERE.  Lili is colored with Copic Sketch Markers on Papertrey Ink card-stock.  Her hair is the E30’s, jacket is BV01 & 02, jeans are E40, 41 and 42, pumpkin is YR00, 02, 04, 07, YG93 & 95, skin is E000,00,01 and diluted R20 (R000)  Do you know if you can dilute a color with blender fluid?

I used Oval Nestabilities HERE and Labels 10 HERE.  The super fun sentiment is from Amy R’s Autumn sentiment set HERE.  K & Co. pattern papers… Stampin Up Old olive and Cajun “something” card-stock. Making Memories brads.  All the papers are edged with Distress inks HERE.

I used the sketch from the Everybody Art Challenge blog and at Stamp Something Challenge blog, the theme is Something Punchy!

Happy Friday!  I’m off to our area stamp club Christmas party this afternoon. Looking forward to it!  Thanks for stopping by and happy pumpkin making!!!
