Let's All Go To The Pumpkin Patch

Welcome to the first day of fall!
I have been busily decorating my house for Fall
(well when I am not raking up hundreds of pine cones that have fallen)
I love, love the fall season, not only in decorating my home,
but also in making Fall cards!

That brings us to this weeks challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters
where little oh' me is the hostess this time around and
I have chosen the theme of Pumpkin Patch for our challenge!

I had a plan all in mind for this challenge,
but right in the middle of it I have come down with a nasty flu bug.
As I write this my throat is sore and I think my head might fall
and I never, ever get sick or it's rare...
must be one of those rare times!

So because I was feeling poorly,
I shoved my original idea aside and went with this quick and easy card!

I layered a bit of card stock, SU Cajun Craze onto cream.
The polka dot paper was laying around for another project and it was
the perfect color, so I grabbed it.
It is My Mind's Eye the Spider's web paper.

The focal image of my card is a label I bought in a set
about (hate to admit this) 12 years ago.
To that I added a few wheat die cuts cut from snippets in my scrap bag, 
a bow, a few gems for bling and called it a day!

So head on over to The Sisterhood and see what my "sistahs"
have to get your creativeness going and join in with us!!

Your quick and easy card is totally fabulous and it still fits with the theme you chose. I really love it! I have bunches of those vintage type labels that I bought about that long ago, too. One of these days I might even use a few of them. Love the wheat die cuts with the image. So sorry to hear you're feeling icky. I hope it goes away quickly.

Terrific card! See... Aren't you glad you have hoarded your special scraps and supplies over the years?-- you just never know when something awesome will happen, like this card!

I love that you found something you had put away for such a long time and it fits perfectly with a fall card. The added wheat is so fall too and that ribbon just adds a fun pop of color. I hope you are on the mend now.
