Meet the Punkin' Family!



I just love it when I find long lost stamps!  I was rummaging around my craft closet and found these fun pumpkins from G-Rated Stamps. What good timing!  I have had these so long I did not know if G-Rated still existed, so I googled  them. Yes, they are still selling these cute pumpkins with the faces as a separate stamp set. I bought mine as bare rubber at a convention (much cheaper that way). I think you could still get them that way, but couldn't find that option on their site. Maybe you can figure it out???!!!

I used another Close To My Heart retired stamp set for the fence and hay bales. I used various punches on this card as well, a Martha grass punch, and a couple of small paper shaper punches for the tendrils and leaves, and a SU! scallop punch for the cloud.

While I was making this, I kept thinking that this looks just like a little Newton  "punkin' family" with Cole sitting up on a bale of hay, while Mom, Dad and little Lukey look on! Cole can be rather "active"! LOL!!!

Are you ready for a trip to the pumpkin patch? The weather has been so beautiful here...sunny and around 80°...a real fall treat!
