Love Me Some Pumpkins

I've loved pumpkins for as long as I can remember.  I grew up on a farm where my dad had a wonderful garden each summer.  When I was 8 or 9, I remember setting up a pumpkin stand at the end our driveway.  I don't recall selling any, and was probably just as happy
to have more pumpkins for our own carving. 
Here's a fall card I made with the September Stamp of the Month "Poster Tidings".  I just stamped it and cut out the sections I wanted to use.  The pumpkin cut out is from the CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.  Leafy vine stamp is from Happy Autumn stamp set.
Here's my hubby Greg, who I often refer to as farmer McGregor, with our surprise pumpkin and gourd harvest last week.  These ALL grew from our compost pile where we tossed and tilled all our pumpkins and gourds at the end of the season last year.  Not one was planted intentionally, which makes these beauties all the more delightful!  There's going to be some fun carving and decorating this season!  I hope your fall is filled with delightful surprises too!

Happy Autumn!

  Autumn, October, Homemade Apple Pie, Gratitude, Family, Jack-o-lanterns, Raking Leaves, November, Blessed....what words come to mind when you think of this beautiful time of the year?  Many of mine happen to be included in the September of the Month "Poster Tidings!" Love the cool subway poster style of this stamp set which also includes a Winter version! 
Order it quickly though, because it will be gone in just a few days!
Here's a special project we made this week at my montly Creative Club!  I love getting together for our monthly playdate!  We used the My Creations 6x6 Memory Showcase (accordian album), CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge, Huntington paper pack, Poster Tidings and Happy Autumn stamp sets and I some of my favorite accessories!  I hope you like this little mini album pages and pockets!

OH Baby, Banner, Baking and Bling!

 We are SO EXCITED for the birth of our first grandbaby due to arrive next month!  I've been told that I will lose my heart to this new little one in a matter of seconds.  I am ready to fall in love with her.  I believe I already have!
 A few weeks ago, there was a lovely baby shower for Mama-to-be, Danielle (and Daddy Hans too), with lots of family and friends helping celebrate.  Soon to be Auntie Anna and several Great Aunts hosted a wonderful event!  What a happy day it was with beautiful gifts, desserts, and decorations!

Take a look at this gorgeous and equally tasty pink ombre cake made by my talented niece, Hayley.  It was a perfect centerpiece dessert!  Visit Hayley's blog for more of her creativity and baking delights!
