Pumpkins...


The days are, little by little, getting shorter, the temps are starting to cool and there is a hint of fall in the hour.  So in honor of all this I've been working on these little pumpkins.  The stamp is an oldie from Just Rite Stampers and I colored it with my distress inks.   I used Spellbinders dies to make the frame and the orange decorative square.  Then a little white ribbon and it is all ready to go.  I also stamped some swirls on the orange square just to fill in space.

Pretty soon there will be frost on the pumpkins and I will be all ready with my little card. 

 
I also wanted to share a picture I took through my craft room window.  I have been waiting for several years for the squirrels to come to my yard and this is the thanks I get!   The little rascal spilled several seeds before he realized  he was just too big to fit the feeder.  I suppose now I will need to buy him some peanuts!   
 
Have a wonderful day and I hope you find a little time to be creative!

Now for the little rascal your so happy to have... but it's just the oppisit here in Fl... We have SOOOOOooooo many of these little things it's almost impossiable to have a bird feeder.. they will eat right thru one if it has to small of a whold for them.. we even got one of the battery powered ones that when something heavey is on the purch it starts to spin.. but ours just enjoyed the ride....
But glad your happy with your little furry friend!!

Lovely card!! We will be seeing pumpkins soon in all the farmer stands and church yards. I'm sure your little squirrel friend felt like he hit the jackpot with a feeder full of seed. I had to laugh because I work hard to keep squirrels *out* of my feeders.... they can eat the entire contents of a feeder in less than a day. Enjoy your weekend!

Such a beautiful card, Glenda, your frame is awesome! I do love the thought of anything fall! Your squirrel is funny just like mine! However I can't believe you were wishing he would come, I would have sent you some sooner! LOL! Have a wonderful Friday!

Somehow your card and the squirrel picture just seem to go together...maybe because I have a pumpkin and squirrels fall stamp that I just love. Wonderful photo from your stamp room window. Love the card!
