Too Much Halloween!

     When I found this fun and funny jack-o-lantern in my collection of Limited Runs images, I thought he looked totally worn out by all the Halloween festivities and, rather than looking very scary, I thought that looked like the biggest pumpkin yawn I'd ever seen.  :-D  So, I decided to get one more Halloween card out of the way.  It'll be time to mail them before we know it!


     Last year, I saw white pumpkins in the stores for the first time.  I know they've been around for years and popular for at least the last decade but that was the first time I'd seen them in my local stores.  Being influenced by that, I decided to color only the shading and the stem with my ProMarkers and the end result was this beautiful white pumpkin.  It's fussy cut - no dies and no electronic cutters.

     The background is done with two scraps of CS which were on my craft table and I used them instead of discarding them into the trash.  I printed and hand-cut the sentiment, then added one of my hand-made bows.  This one will be CAS, flat, and easily mailed.
