The Great Pumpkin Hop Day 1

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!!

In our family, we are about fun and happy days, not scary and spooky ones.  My pumpkin creation represents my three happy daughters with a simple reminder for you...


To make this standard card, I used two Cricut cartridges (Paper Doll Dress Up for the pumpkins and Potpourri Basket for the sentiment).  The paper and bronze glitter are from Close to my Heart, as well as the Chocolate and Sunset inks used for distressing the cardstock.

We would love for you to become a follower of 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 Theresa ~ www.thescrapbookingqueen.com!
