Happy Thanksgiving!

It has been sooo long since I have stamped anything new : (

Yesterday I spent the day cutting paper for some upcoming parties. I was going to stamp when I finished, but it was 75 degrees out (20 degrees cooler than this time last week!) and so I decided to take the kids to the park instead!

The card I am showing you today is one of the make-and-takes at a workshop this weekend. I cased it completly from another stamper. I saved her picture and I just went and tried to read the watermark, so I could give her credit- but the watermark is so small and light that I can't make it out all : ( So if you know who made this originally- let me know!!!

ETA: Here is the original! Thanks to my fabulous readers for helping me out!

This has to be the most simple card I have ever made! But I love it!!!

The pumpkin was made with the large oval punch. I sponged the edges of each oval and I popped up the middle layer. The stem is just a small piece of Chocolate Chip ribbon. The leaves are a piece of Old Olive ribbon in a knot.

I loved this card so much that it inspired me to make place cards and napkin rings with the same theme to make a complete Thanksgiving set. So tune in tomorrow for the rest! And don't forget that you only have until tomorrow to order my Holiday Line Up Class by mail!
