Welcome, Great Pumpkin!...

to view the image up-close, please click on the photo


I just love the movie, It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!, and I can't wait until the day my little rugrat is old enough to enjoy it. This year might be the year, and so I thought I'd make a card in anticipation of our first viewing together. I was inspired by this week's Color Throwdown colors and the adorable patch of pumpkins in the Gobble, Gobble set from Taylored Expressions. By the way, Taylor is doing a terrifically fun 12 Days of a Handcrafted Christmas over on her blog, with great projects and a giveaway, so check it out if you are looking for ideas for handmade gifts this season!

  2. Trim patterned paper and mat. Tie ribbon and adhere.
