Thinking Fall... and it's Friday!

Morning everyone! Well, it's Friday and fall is in the air here in Minnesota. And what perfect card to share with pumpkins and fall colors... :)

I decided to pull out my Nesties and DP that I haven't used in ages! The pumpkins were SO fun to make using SU! oval punches, SU! Swirls die, and Gelly Roll pen for some sparkles around the edges. I also did some "Doodling" around the lower Nestie shape. The paper piercing adds so much too.

Take a look at my close up and click on the photo's to enlarge. Enjoy!

Any big plans for the weekend? I have a girls stamping retreat weekend coming up in 3 weeks that I need to get my ideas going on what I want to work on... before you know it I'll be out of time to plan. Yikes!


I'm planning on being home most of this weekend and a blog surfing I go.... YES! I so miss everyone! So the keyboard will be smoking and can't WAIT to see all the fun and creative creations you have.


Thanks for the visit, taking a peek and your time! Have a super weekend... STAMP!

SMILES... Michelle :)

There's my sweet and super crafty friend! Hey Michelle! What a wonderful autumn creation. I'm still waiting for fall to start here in California. We're still up in the 80's, low 90's, although I hear it's supposed to start cooling down this weekend. We had like five minutes of rain a couple of weeks ago.

Anyway, I love your pumpkin creation! How clever is that! I would never have thought of using punches to make pumpkins! I'm going to give it a try, so stay tuned for a CASE. LOL

Love and hugs from me to you!
Lisa

I like how you used the nesties labels for the layout. And the oval punches for pumpkins is one of my fave techniques. Great fall card.

I love the accents on your card. The gold on the pumpkin. The tendrils, it's all good! Another beautiful creation!

Love those cool pumpkins Michelle! I have some of that DP too! Great minds.... I really like how you backed the sentiment, very cool. That label is so neat, is that a spellbinders label or a punch? We have a very cool wind moving in tonight so temps are going from 50's to forties for weekend. Yuck!!
