FROST ON THE PUMPKINS?


I wish! For the first time this summer it has been hot as Hades and wouldn't you know it our central air conked out about a month ago. We have been so lucky as it has been a pretty cool summer. We were going to put off getting a replacement till next spring but we may need it sooner if this keeps up. At least I have a good excuse to spend more time in my craft room which is in our nice, cool basement.


I found these cute pumpkins HERE on SCS last fall and I thought they would make fun place cards for a Halloween party using the new SPOOKTACULAR set from The Greeting Farm. They would also be cute by themselves as a little shelf decoration or a craft for the older kiddies.



Stampin up's round tab punch is used to make the pumpkin parts which are glued together. I put a little ribbon in the center before I sealed the final edge and curled some paper for the pumpkins tendrils and tucked them in along the ribbon. The vampire, witch and mummy were placed along the side of the pumpkin with some pop-dots.

I know summer isn't over yet but fall is my favorite time of year so I like to get a head start and it takes my mind off the heat!

These are just the cutest littlest things I have ever seen! You are so creative! Love the color and the images you used. Sorry its so hot where you live. Its only been hot a few days this summer for us in Northern Wisconsin. Its actually been a very depressing summer because its been so cold...you can't even go swimming its so cold. So sad.
