It's Thursday, you know what that means...

Happy Thursday!

I hope you are having a great week.

I have been super busy at work with the State Fair. I am the organizer for
our booth in the Education Building. We have about 120 shifts that
need volunteers for. I've been able to book all spots but 2. We
had our first training session today. I had to hand out all of the tickets
for admission and the polo shirts that everyone has to wear. I will
be so glad when the state fair is over.

Now onto more fun!

Here's the sketch for the OCC...

I hope you play along with us this week.

Here is my sample. I did turn the sketch on the side.
Feel free to do that as well.

I used the NEW stamps and DIES from Prickley Pear!

Oh my goodness. I love them!

They will be available for sale in the next few weeks.

This set comes with 3 pumpkin stamps and 2 jack o'lantern faces
a fall leaf, a pumpkin leaf and a couple of sayings. You can
also buy the pumpkin die that will cut out the pumpkin!

Black and White Polka Dots-My Minds Eye
Other PP Graphic 45
Raffia (I hand dyed)

Pumpkin stamp and die

Cut card to size. Layer PP and sew edge. Tear polka dot paper. Tie on the twill and raffia. Glue on the torn paper. Cut three pumpkins out of the cork. Ink two of the with distress ink. Color the 3rd one with copics before you stamp it with stazon. Glue down the 3 pumpkins with pop dots, layering them a bit. Add glue to the stamped pumpkin and add glitter sparingly. For the sentiment stamp it on a scrap piece of cork. And add a small piece of twill with the tiny attacher. Before you attach the sentiment, add the round bling around the stamped pumpkin.
