Fall Fest with Glimmer

  The pumpkins have been appearing on porches around the neighborhood the last week or 2.  Our porch is pumpkin free right now but I do have some pretty mums taking center stage.  We learned a number of years ago that carving pumpkins too early in Richmond just leads to a disgusting mushy mess on the front porch.  Pumpkins are on our agenda next weekend so hopefully they will make it the few days until Halloween.

  I'm still having fun with some fall themed cards.  You never know when you'll need a "just because" card.

   I got some mileage out of the Hardwood background on this card.  I stamped it on the card base, then on the tag without reinking and one last time without reinking on the strip of Typeset Specialty DSP.

  The pumpkins, tag and DSP are all sponged along the edges.  I was proud of myself for using up a few scraps of ribbon from my scrap container even if it didn't make a dent at all in it.  Small victories right?

  The layout is from Create with Connie and Mary and the color and glimmer paper sparkle inspiration came from Stampin' Royalty.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
