Pumpkin Mojo ~ 261

Last Friday I drove to Olympia and I was thinking about the ornament die.  I wanted to make something outside the box.  It's a fabulous set and the ornaments are sooooooo pretty, but I'm not yet in a Christmas mood.  The leaves are just starting to change here and the afternoons are still warm, so I am in a Fall mood.  I wondered if I could make a pumpkin... here is what I came up with.


In hindsight, I should have cut off the bottom of each piece like I did in the picture below, to make it look more like a pumpkin and less like a tomato.  hee-hee.  But it is still so stinkin' cute. 


I was hoping that I could find a sketch with a circle in it to make a card worthy of my new "creation".   The Mojo Monday Sketch did not disappoint.





After focusing last week on sewing and scrapbooking and making copies of my swap card, it was so fun to get in the hobby room and create this card just for the sake of creating.  


This card would need to be hand delivered, I think.  Although I might be able to flatten it out for shipping.  Actually, I think I am going to put this on a shelf in my entryway as my first Fall decoration of the season.  :) 

I would type out how I made this, but it would be too long.  If you want me to film a video, just let me know.  :) 

Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post if you would like to re-create this pumpkin yourself.  SU is offering a special that includes the Holiday Ornament Framelits.  ;)
