It's a serious issue we all need to consider at this oh-so-dangerous-for-pumpkins time of year. If you have a pumpkin, the most important thing you can do to keep him safe this fall is KEEP HIM INSIDE!! Millions of pumpkins who are allowed to freely roam the streets are captured and, *gulp*, gutted and put on display each October.
Needless tons of seeds are spilled in this country every autumn and only you can prevent this pulp bath!!
Get the kids out of the room - this is pretty gruesome!!
I have no idea how the Doodle Factory pumpkins organized this protest so quickly after I started making a card with Julie HRR's pumpkin dip recipe, but it should show you how resourceful they are...
The card base is Tangerine Tango and so is the Hawaii Papaya DSP.
The card is 6x6, and I cheat when I make these. I dont buy 12x12 cardstock, and you cant make a 6x6 card from 8.5 x 11... or can you?
I do - I cut an 11x6 piece and score it at 6 in my new Scor Pal.
Then, as in this card, I put a strip of DSP on the inside of the card and just pretend I meant to have the front of the card shorter!! :)
So back to the pumpkin protest. I hand wrote the recipe on black with my white gel pen - it looks like a menu chalkboard to me.
The talk balloons are made with my Boho Blossoms punch.
Maddie feels like it is her duty as a black cat to participate in the horror of Pumpkincide each Halloween. Here she is telling Splotchy a gory pumpkin murder story!!
She does these little demonstrations of her ferocity every half hour, just like at Disney World!!
We all watch and clap and give her the self actualization she so desperately needs!
And speaking of scary - how about my fabulous monster necklace????
You know I love all things monster, and most especially Stefan Bucher's Daily Monster! Check my sidebar and get lost in his fun blog for a while...
So I was stoked when Blend Creations started offering Metal for Monsters - Limited Edition Designer Monster jewelry benefitting Unicef! I rushed over and pre-ordered my Stefan Bucher Monster, which I received Friday.
I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!!
But imagine my glee when I turned it over and I saw that mine is #1 of 100!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOLY MONSTER!!!!
I couldn't be more tickled. I hope you like him as much as I do!
Following terrifying demonstrations of pumpkin head twisting though, must come napping.
Here are some shamelessly cute pics of them fighting sleep...
