A Fall Card For My Lil' Pumpkin

Every Halloween, Valentine's Day, and Easter I send my children and grand baby a box of treats to let them know how much I love them.  In every box is a handmade card for each of them, some edible treats, and sometimes some little gifts like books or DVD's.  I like to personalize the card as much as possible by picking an image or sentiment that reminds me of them.  When I saw this Pure Innocence image, it reminded me so much of Alethea when we met up in the Wisconsin Dells a few weeks ago and she picked up a pumpkin.  I just HAD to use it!

I hand-wrote a sentiment on the card instead of using a sentiment stamp.  I wanted the sentiment to represent what she is to me "My Little Pumpkin" and also to say "Happy Fall" and not "Happy Halloween."

The flower and little pumpkin are images I fussy cut out of designer paper and glued to the main image panel.

The main image is a digital image that I printed onto white card stock.  I then colored it in and fussy cut it.  I popped it up on dimensionals onto the main image panel.

The main image panel is fall designer paper from an old DCWV paper stack pad.  I thought the pumpkin border went perfect with my pumpkin theme.

I adhered the fall designer paper to a beige card base.

And in case you missed my Wisconsin Dells post, here is my Lil' Pumpkin!  I can't wait to see her again.  Thanksgiving can't come fast enough for me!

Have A Great Day!  Amy
