GP, is that you?

Debra Burgin Great pumpkin cardYesterday we went on a drive, during a perfect autumn afternoon.  We stopped at the orchard for apples, but I really wanted a pumpkin from a farmyard.  I’d like to think that some kid’s 4H project was raising pumpkins and I’m helping send her to college with my $2 donation!  Following signs promising pumpkins and gourds, we drove for miles (and doesn’t four left turns make a circle?) before we found an excellent display of all things fall:  pumpkins (including those huge, kobbly ones!), gourds, Indian corn, hay bales — the works.  DH held me back, however, and he chose a teeny pumpkin for the back stoop.  Shoulda gone by myself!

I needed a card for a friend of my mother who is under the weather, so I tried my hand at a “Great Pumpkin” card, with clouds racing over the dark sky and the harvest moon coming up over the hills.  It’s the first time I ever made a pumpkin from oval punches.  Lots of sponging on all pieces gives depth and definition.
