Pumpkin Boy

Good Monday morning friends!  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  Mine was just okay.  I did actually get a lot accomplished but other
things snuck in there that weren't fun.  Today, though, is a new day in Jesus so I get to start all over again...yay!

Today's card...well, I'm not even sure if I'm supposed to show you today's card yet.  About a week and a half ago My Scrap Chick had a little call out on Facebook.  Basically it was, if you work with digi's and wanted to participate MSC would e-mail you an image, you make a card, and e-mail it back to them then you get the entire set of digi's for free.  Fun idea, right?  The only problem is I haven't heard when I can show it to you yet so I'm showing it to you today with the info that I don't yet see it in the MSC store.

This is the image I was sent to work with.  Pretty perfect for me, right?  When I saw how big the pumpkins were for this layout I decided it was best for me to not try and color them so I immediately though paper piecing would be fun.  I picked out some fun paper from a paper pack that is currently buried on the floor Smiley from (had to use the container for something else for a couple of days) and got to work.I don't recall who the layout for this card is from but I really like it as it can be clean and simple, like my card, or you could really gussy it up!  Anyway, My Scrap Chick is one of my favorite places for SVG's so I hope you'll check them out and their freebie each Friday is fabulous!

Tonight is the Care Net banquet.  The theme is Celebrating Life Through Laughter.  We have a super funny comedian, Gordon Douglas, coming in as our speaker, a great silent auction area, and a wonderful dinner planned.  I am excited to be hosting two tables.  You'll see a picture of the table with the guest gift that I made tomorrow.  I have to mention that Gordon Douglas has a program called Operation Bellylaughs where he sends a comedy package to deployed troops...for free!  All I had to do was send an e-mail and a package was off to Jon!  Very neat Gordon...thank you!

Okay, this is way longer than normal so I will get onto my thought of the day.  Have a wonderful Monday everyone!

Thought of the day:  Never get tired of doing little things for other people.  Sometimes the little things occupy the biggest spot in their hearts.

Hi Lorie, your card is just adorable. Love the image and I'm glad you choose today to show it. Your right about those pumpkins being huge. It was brilliant to paper piece them! I hope you had a wonderful time at your banquet! We all need to laugh more.
Hugs! Sarah

Your card is just adorable and I love the paper pieced pumpkins. Looks like the Banquet was a big success. It would be great to hear a comedian who is actually funny without being vulgar.
