"Thankful" Card

Hello Everyone! I hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend.
Halloween is basically out the door and Thanksgiving is ready to take center stage. I'm excited about the upcoming holiday but once Thanksgiving is over, Christmas & New Year slap you in the face and the year is over. Yikes!! BUT the excitement of Black Friday overcomes my end of the year anxieties. So it all works out. 

So onto my project...I thought I would make a Fall theme card. When I generally think of Fall i think of pumpkins (which equals into pumpkin pie, Mmmmmmmm) and the colors of leaves changing. And of course there are the holidays but I didn't want to have a specific made card. So I made this card with versatility in mind. It can be used as a Thank You card, a Thanksgiving card or a Thinking of You card (if the sentiment is changed)

 I love this pumpkin cut. I think its the best one to get you started on a pumpkin patch project.
