{ Pumpkin Patch }

Fall is creeping in. Mornings are cooler and the days are tolerable. We are continuing with our traditional visit to the local Pumpkin Patch. Getting pictures is a little harder. Alex wants to run around and pick up all the little pumpkins he can find. When it was time to go he didn't want to leave. It was still pretty hot this Friday.

I feel like I should have a fall/pumpkin card, but I don't. I do have a Technique Tuesday card that I made for a challenge to use markers.

I stamped five bird houses from Home Tweet Home that I colored with markers. I added little pearls on the top of each house. The sentiment is from Simply Stated and it fits perfectly in the space. I stamped clouds from The Weather Report on patterned paper that I cut out and machine stitched to the card.

Alex was sick last night and today all day and I am exhausted. He is finally sleeping for the night, I hope. Poor little baby.

I made some Cranberry-Pumpkin cookies for the PTA meeting that I didn't get to go to this morning and I have been snacking on them all day.

Have a great night.
