Patchwork Pumpkins!!!

I got a bunch of Halloween & Fall stuff a few weeks ago.  I really fell in love with the Apple Cider line from Bo Bunny.   Since Thanksgiving is only a couple of weeks away (Oct. 8th here in Canada), I thought I better get started on my Thanksgiving cards.

As soon as I saw the pumpkin stamp from the stamp set I knew what I wanted to do.  I stamped the pumpkin on several different pieces of patterned paper and then a bunch on what card stock.  I then cut them all out and then piece them all together like puzzle pieces to form 6 different patchwork pumpkins.  I then shaded them with some grey copic markers.

For the first card I made with the pumpkins I used a fence and banner I cut out using my cricut machine.  The greeting stamp is also from the Bo Bunny "Apple Cider" stamp set.
Here is a picture of Kit sitting pretty in our craft studio.  She is sitting on top of one of her kitty condos (she has two).  She outgrew this one and we bought her a bigger one. I kept this one and put it in my studio so she had some place to play when she was in there.  She's a little too big for it but she likes to play on it to get my attention LOL!
I will post some pics of the other cards I make with the other pumpkins in a few days.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
