The Pumpkin Patch

>> Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Hi Everyone,

Today I have the homeowner blues. Back in February of this year, I may have mentioned that my refrigerator broke, leaked and ruined my wood floors.  It was a long, messy haul getting new floors installed and a new fridge in place, but in the end everything looks lovely.  So imagine my horror when I came home to another leak in my kitchen and basement! Nooooooooooo......was my cry heard through the neighborhood.  I ran around like a mad woman, trying to find a shut off valve and I quickly called an emergency plumber (aka expensive plumber) who fixed what was broken regarding the plumbing, and promptly told me my dishwasher needs a new part. I have since found out the new part and fix will cost almost as much as a new one, so I will be hand washing dishes until I can get a new one installed.  Ah yes, home ownership!  A blessing and a curse ;)

Basically what I'm saying is, I need this sunny cheerful card as much as anyone today!  It features the new Pumpkin Patch stamp, and it put me in a perfect mood for fall.  It was fun and easy to color and I simply die cut it and added a mat. 

The background was dry embossed with fall words and I added the empty frame for embellishment.  It was a scrap item that had been sitting on my desk and finding a use for stuff like that makes me happy too.  To finish the card I added a green ribbon and die cut some sunflowers to play off the the stamped image. 

Here's wishing you a sunny and happy day!

Karin, So sorry you are having so many homeowner issues! I have been there.

Your card is wonderful. So many lovely layers and texture and fun additions like the flowers and open frame. Super coloring too. All around greatness and such a super Fall card.

What a bummer Karin!!! I'm hoping your floor didn't get ruined again! There is definitely something to be said for renting, any problems and someone else has to deal with it ;)

I hope your card cheered you up as much as it did me this morning! LOVE those giant sunflowers - a perfect match for our new pumpkin patch stamp!! Love the bright green bow too!
