Give Thanks Pumpkin

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well!'s been a repair & replace week around here. Seems nearly every plumbing feature in our house decided to give up. First one bathroom, then another, then the kitchen sink. On top of the time (like 4 days worth) it took to repair/replace them, there was the time spent waiting on the right parts to arrive, moving everything out from under the sink & cleaning up the inevitable leaks. We pretty much had water everywhere...except where we need it. OUTSIDE! We haven't had any rain in over a month & we're getting pretty desperate. We're still waiting on the fall weather, too. What's up with this endless summer?? I have sweaters I want to wear, lol! 

To make my Thanksgiving card, I die cut a white rectangle just big enough for this lovely Give Thanks Brush Pumpkin, put it into my Misti, then stamped it 2 or 3 times (to get good coverage) using a Kaleidacolor autumn leaves ink pad. I added a dk rust colored layer then took another stitched rectangle,  brayered it w/ the same ink then split it apart to frame the outer corners underneath. 
For the two stitched squares on the left, I stamped the Open Leaf w/ rusty hinge, the Silhouette Leaf on top w/ a combo of marigold & honey, then masked them & stamped the Splatter w/ the autumn leaves ink over the top. I sponged the edges to give them a little depth.

Here's a look at the inside.
