Happy Day to you!

Hi Everyone!

We had just the busiest weekend, but oh so fun! I know I mentioned this but my 7 year old is playing flag football for the first time this year.  He's just a little peanut out there having so much fun. The coaches have put his ENERGY to good use. He looks like a little tornado out there grabbing flags. It's so much fun!! We also had a pumpkin carving party that was so much fun! But meeesssy!! On Saturday we went to a family party and my boys went to Halloween parties. whew... we need a rest. 
Tonight, I have created a super simple card for a couple challenges. I have seen these pumpkins all over the internet and just love the way they look. They are so simple but look so pretty. I created this to enter in:

Little Scrap Pieces challenge - Fall, Halloween, or Thanksgiving
Celebrate the Occasion - Fall

Card- 4.25" x 5.5"
Cricut Cartridge - George & PDDU
Paper - Recollections
Stamp - Stampin up
Bakers Twine

Boy, it sounds like you had a busy weekend AND a fun one!

I remember when our kids were little, we did the pumpkin carving and had halloween parties for the kids and their friends. We had sooo much fun:)

These are memories your kids will always remember...even thought mine are all in their 20's, they still come over to carve pumpkins!! Enjoy these times, they go fast!

Your card is darling Shelly! I love this pumpkin cut too-love the paper combinations that you used-looks awesome! All your Halloween cards this month were awesome!! Good luck in the challenges and Happy Halloween!!

Aww Shelly, what a fantastic time you've been having! That makes me so happy. :o) You're such a sweetheart and deserve to have every day be happy and sparkly. :o)

Now about this card... I happy sighed. It's so Autumn and gorgeous and peaceful. The twine bow is so sweet on the gorgeous pumpkin (I wish I had that cut!) and I crazy love the border. The sparkly leaves are waltzing! :o) Beautiful work as always, my friend.
