We now return to your reguarly scheduled blog post.

Hello blogland!  I have finally) returned.  And where have I been...this time?  At my Music Teacher's Convention and then on the couch sick and then at(ugh) work.  But I am back to normal...well as normal as I ever get anyway... So today we have a cute pumpkin card.  I don't know who originally made this, but they are a genius!  It is cut from three of SU!'s Top Note Sizzix die (love this die!) and I don't know how they figured out to cut the top one.  I'm not good at looking at a die (or punch either) and saying well, if I cut it like this then I'll get that shape.  But I can copy it once it's done!  hehehe  And I did put my own twist on it by making it a secret pocket.  Pull the leaves out and bam! secret message.  All the stamping was done with Stamping Up! stamps, I love the new French Foliage set in the holiday mini! 
To make the pumpkin, cut three Top Notes and use one for the bottom.  Then cut the second one in half and trim off a little more so that it is smaller than the bottom one.  Stick it onto the bottom note.  For the top piece, measure 1/2" from the gray edge of the die and mark with a gel pen.  Then align the third note on the white lines at the center points.
When you cut it, it has the cool round edges and the points on each side.  Like I said, whoever thought of this is a genius and I take my hat off to them.  Well I would if I was wearing a hat.  But you get the idea.  :) I hope to join in on the Compendium Challenge this week, I've missed two more weeks...lazy, lazy, lazy... and my Tim stash is crying 'cause it thinks I don't love it anymore.  And nothing could be further from the truth!  Gotta get to stamping or hubby is going to ask why I still have so many tags since I just had to have all 2,000 of them...  And oh,oh,oh!  A Panera Bread is finally open near me!  Woo Hoo!!  Love it, love it!  Off to stamp, have a fabulous Thanksgiving, can't wait for the turkey nap!
