Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning!  I hope you had a good weekend.  Ours was pretty low key - didn't do much of anything.  I did play at my craft table for a little bit, but probably not as much as I should have which means I'll regret the low key downtime later.

So we're back this week with a challenge over at Paper Pretties.  It's the season to celebrate thankfulness and fellowship.  So ARTish has come up with two great new images that illustrates this so wonderfully.

This week's challenge is to Give Thanks.  Here's what I did with the Peter Pumpkin Pie Eater image...

Isn't he sweet holding is yummy (bleh) pumpkin pie.  OK, truth be told, I'm not a fan of pumpkin pie, so I'm pretending he's holding a pumpkin cheesecake (mmmm).

The sketch is from The Sweet Stop and Our Creative Corner's challenge is to use either pumpkins or the color pumpkin pie.  I used all 3 - pie, color and pumpkins.

Melissa, I just love the 'hospitality' pattern paper you chose for your card. And that cute mouse holding his pumpkin dessert! How fabulous, and what a great job coloring. I love the simple brad on the grosgrain ribbon. Lovely simple touch. And I love how you incorporated the brown from the pattern paper to the solid cardstock with the scallop trim. Great eye! and it is refreshing to see someone had put some time and thought in their submission.
