The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop Day 2

Pumpkin HopHello, and WELCOME to the The GREAT PUMPKIN Blog Hop!! We're so excited that you could join us for this WONDERFUL two-day hop!! Please be sure to visit BOTH days for maximum ideas, maximum FUN, and maximum chances to WIN!! Our hostess, Amy at www.lovetocrop.com has some SUPER prizes for a few hoppers, so be sure to check out all of those details on her blog!!

If you have hopped here from  Lisa at http://handmadewithlove-lisa.blogspot.com, then you have arrived at the perfect spot in the pumpkin patch!! If you are just popping in to visit, please take a trip back to Amy at www.lovetocrop.com to start at the beginning -- with all the pumpkins in the patch, you'll want to be sure to see them all!!

Lsat week, I took my daughters to the pumpkin patch.  We are always amazed at the variety of pumpkins and gourds.  We brought three home - one white, one orange with green around the bottom, and one orange with bumps all over it.  It was a reminder to me that God created us all to be different.  With that in mind, I created a card with an unusually colored pumpkin, standing out in front of an orange background.

To make this card, I used the Wild Card Cricut cartridge. The paper and stamped sentiment are from Close to my Heart, as well as the Chocolate, New England Ivy and Sunset inks used on the paper.

We would love for you to follow our blog and "like" us at www.facebook.com/curlsandgrins!

Thank you again for visiting, for the next stop in the Pumpkin Patch, please hop to Jessica at http://thecreativestamperspot.blogspot.com!
