All Things Pumpkin

I love pumpkins!  Pumpkin spice coffee, pumpkin {avocado} smoothies, pumpkin pies, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin decorations, The Great Pumpkin, pumpkin patches...all things pumpkin! 
I saw the cutes little pumpkin on Pinterest (which consumes way too much of my time some days) the other day and wanted to make one.  I got caught up in other projects and never got to it.  But when I saw the pumpkins challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments I set my other projects aside to give this little guy a try.

I love the polka dot paper in the Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP and thought it would make for a cute pumpkin. And the Core'dinations paper was prefect for the stem! This is now sitting up on my mantle with all of my other Halloween creations :)

Supplies Used:

Paper ~ Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP, Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso Core'dinations
Other Supplies ~ Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Blossom Petals Builder, 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch

Now I think I'll go make a cup of pumpkin spice coffee to get me through the rest of the day!  More stamping to be done tonight :)

Happy Stamping!
