Is it a full moon???

Because I am feeling REALLY out of sorts!! I keep dropping things, losing things & seeing things! It took me all morning to finish this card ~ nothing was going right. The image turned out to be bigger than I thought, so I had to make a 6X6 card, but I had no 12X12 paper to use as a base so I had to run to Michael's (pity shame, right?). Then I searched *everywhere* for a big ole sunflower that would have been PERFECT for this card, but I couldn't find it anywhere. I probably threw it out when I reorganized my space, thinking it was too big & I'd never use it. Or....it's hiding on me & as soon as I finish this post it will suddenly be right under my nose!!!


Well, so, instead of the big sunflower, I chose to stamp a trio of pumpkins & cut those out instead. All stamps are from High Hopes. The scarecrow is Guard Duty Rudy (there are 2 different sizes of Rudy ~~ if you are ordering him, be sure to check the dimensions), & the pumpkins are the Chubby Pumpkins. I stamped Rudy onto Papertrey Ink white paper with Timber Brown Stazon, then colored with my Prismas pencils & gamsol. The striped paper is from American Crafts & the sunflower/leave/crow paper is from Debbie Mumm's Harvest & Holiday pack that I picked up at Joann the other day (on sale, of course!). I used twine behind the pumpkins & in the corner (I unraveled it & shredded it a bit with my scissors first), then added 3 Michael's baubles in the corner. They're clear, but I used my 1/4" hole punch to punch out 3 Old Olive circles, then attached them to the bottom before adhering them to the card. Now I have Old Olive pseudo Dew Drops :)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, & that everyone in the Galveston area stays safe!! We are supposed to get rain this weekend, but that's a pinch compared to what that area will be hit with!!
