What says fall better than pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns?

Sheila at She's a Sassy Lady has a wonderful Gypsy Made Simple tutorial in which she makes an accordian card.  As soon as I watched the video, I knew I wanted to try her idea using a pumpkin cut.  The card base is from Elegant Edges and the pumpkins are from Create a Critter.  Everything was designed on the Gypsy.  I'm going to link this to her Gyspy Made Simple post.  I hope she likes it.

I'm also going to enter this card in Celebrate the Occasion's ribbon challenge,  Paper Playtime's Halloween challenge, and Whimsical Wednesdays' anything goes challenge.

My second pumpkin project was created for Getting Cricky's Simply Sunday challenge which was to make a fall treat.  This card holds a mini candy bar - yum!  The pumpkin was cut from Smiley Cards - first time I've used the cartridge which was a Gyspy download.  The treat holder is a 4 x 7 piece of cardstock scored at 1/2", 2", and 31/2" then folded securing the candy bar on the inside.  I plan to make more since I have a few neighbor kiddos for whom I try to make special Halloween treats.

Well, that's it for now.  I just received Art Nouveau in the mail so I want to get back to the craft table and play with my new toy!!!

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
