Why I’m in Love with Mr. Pumpkin

Meet Mr. Pumpkin. He’s been in my life for almost 30 years! I have very strong feelings for him. In fact, I think I love him. What’s not to love? He’s always smiling and he shows up every Fall (my favorite season). And besides, he’s really cute!

My mom bought him for me at a craft show years ago. He was one of my first Fall decorations. Mr. Pumpkin has followed me to 3 different homes. I think he loves me too.

Usually towards the end of September I start thinking about him and really want to get him out and put him up in my yard. Once he’s out, I feel complete. I sometimes wonder why he makes me so happy, but I’m pretty sure it’s because he reminds me of my mom. If you haven’t figured it out, I’m a very sentimental soul. So, when Lawn Fawn released the Stitched Pumpkin Frame and Outside In Stitched Pumpkin, I had to have it! I wanted to make a cute paper pumpkin!

I created this little thank you card using both sets of dies and the sentiment is from Hello Bluebird.

My goal was to make a simple, cute card. I needed to make several of these, so a quick card design was needed. This card came together so easily. I just die cut the pumpkin pieces and glued them together. I cut an additional pumpkin to attach to the top, back part of the pumpkin, to create the little card.

Lastly, I die cut 3 of the sentiments and glued them together, to add dimension.

Super quick and easy card. This card makes me smile almost as much as Mr.Pumpkin!
