Fred She Said-Pumpkin With Sunflowers

Hello blogging friends. This is an image from Fred She Said called Pumpkins and Sunflowers. One of my all time favorite go-to images for the fall. You can find it right here. I swear you can't make a bad card with this image-it just takes over and your creative juices start flowing.

I cut the background with Spellbinders nestablities, used my Martha Stewart Laurel Leaf punch around the page, made some punched sunflowers with microbead centers and added some pearls. Quick and simple. Sure needed that tonight. Want to know why????

Well it has been awful exciting in my craft room the last two weeks. First I had a good size lizard in my craft room-the kind with a blue strip down it's back.....yuck. Then not to many days after that I had a big juicy centipede. Well my son picked him up and threw him out the door. Two days later he showed back up-I begged him not to squish him on my pretty floor. He was the size of a New England night crawler.....LARGE. Anyway tonight I am talking with my husband and am walking up the steps and there is a SNAKE.....yes.....I said SNAKE. He had his head over the step looking at me. I think he was a pygmy rattlesnake but my husband said no. Either way it un-nerved me and I am a little shakened here. At least my husband said he was proud of me for not screaming bloody murder. Can't wait to see what shows up tomorrow

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed this card. I am back with more the rest of the week with a tutorial tomorrow.

Be-YOO-ti-FULL, Carol!! Oh, pumpkins make me so happy. I love all the fall leaves and produce!! Makes me want to stock my pantry for the long winter ahead. OK, sounds like you've been having just WAY too much excitement in your craft room. I hope you receive NO MORE uninvited guests!! I would have screamed bloody murder with that last one. Ugh!!!!

Gorgeous pumpkin image and beautifully layered on the nestie. Your sunflowers are amazing too. Another fabulous fall card :)

Your creepy crawly stories bring back many memories of the years we lived in Costa Rica. Took a friend down there for a vacation many years ago and the first night there was a crawly thing of some sort in the shower, a centipede in the sink and a lizard somehow got stuck in the fridge and lept over my shoulder when I opened the door. I do draw the line at snakes though! We used to fumigate our house twice a year when we lived there to keep them at bay. Keep us posted on your adventures!
