Pumpkin Birthday

Today's card is one I made about two weeks ago and I'm finally getting around to posting it! I have a few cards that I've made that are just waiting in the wings to make it onto the blog and I'm slowing getting them on there. (I even have wedding invitations that Cindy and I made in the summer that I have to post!!)

This card was for my cousin Carl. Carl loves the fall and he really likes pumpkins. I started making this  card the day of our Friendraiser, but I was running out of time. The day after the Friendraiser, Carl was in my craft room and was ogling over the pumpkin. Little did he know that it was being colored for HIS birthday card!
I grabbed some fall colored cardstock and used my swirl Cuttlebug embossing folder (which is getting A LOT of use this month). I layered the Studio G, prisma colored pumpkin on cardstock and added some fall ribbon I got from Target about two years ago along with some leaf buttons.  I finished it off with an MFT sentiment.

So, the card made it's way down to Washington DC and now has a home on the blog too!

And because I can definitely go along with a laugh - here's a picture my husband posted on Facebook the other night:
I came home from my college Alumni softball game and I had put some deodorizer on our front carpet. I let it sit a while and then had to vacuum it up.  My husband Frank jumped off the couch so friggin' fast just to run and get the camera to catch me in action.  It is a rarity that I have a vacuum in hand (lucky me) but it just made me crack up that he had to post it on Facebook.  I even made dinner and did laundry the next day too! Must of givin' him a heart attack!  Ha Ha !

Any way.......hope your Wednesday is going well :)
Thanks for stopping by!
