Crafty Secrets Thanksgiving Pumpkins
I love pumpkins! This time of year, you can find pumpkin patches on just about every corner. The beautiful colors just say “fall” to me! I love to visit the State Farmer’s Market where they have all the prize winning pumpkins on display. Take a look at these beauties!
If you look closely, you’ll see that this one weight 522.8 pounds! Now that is a LOT of pumpkin pie right there! But these gorgeous pumpkins are not exactly what you would call “petite.”
Aren’t they gorgeous? What would autumn…and Thanksgiving be without pumpkins? Pumpkin pie is always on the menu at our Thanksgiving feast, and this year, I really want to try my hand at making pumpkin butter. Yum! So this sweet vintage pumpkin image from Crafty Secrets makes me think of Thanksgiving, which is my favorite holiday of the year.
The image is from the Heartwarming Vintage Seasonal Image and Journal Notes booklet. My papers are from Creating with Vintage Illustrations CD2 and I customized the colors with the color changer tool in PaintShop Pro. I added stitching, distressing and inking to give the finished card a great vintage feel. The bow was made with 1/2″ brown wrinkled ribbon. I used this same ribbon to form a border that I topped with my favorite Autumn Diamond Print Grosgrain Ribbon. I inked up some felt leaves and added a pretty brad to complete the front of the card.
I computer journaled my greeting onto cream cardstock and used the same papers from the front of the card on the inside. The turkey tag is from Autumn Blessings Vintage Cuts.
Be sure to check out the amazing sales Sandy has in the online store. Both the Seasonal journal booklet and the Autumn Blessings Vintage cuts are on sale for 1/2 price. Don’t miss out on the amazing Halloween and Fall Sale Kit, available while supplies last.
