Grown with Love...FTTC138 82

Mona Pendleton | Monday, October 3, 2011 @ 10:51 PM | , ,

Hi there! Are you enjoying the first few days of October? I'm lovin' the "cooler" morning temps and so are my four legged furry friends :) I can take them for a morning walk without being fearful of burning their little paw pads :)
Welcome to Flourishes Tuesday Timeless Tuesday Challenge #138. Today I am joining along as a guest with the sweet Flourishes Timeless Tuesday DT :) Heather is this week's challenge hostess and chose the beautiful Fall photo shown below as an inspiration piece to jump start your crafty MOJO.
I was inspired by the vibrant pumpkins scattered about the front porch. First up is a card featuring the pretty seed packet image and "accessories" from Seeds of Friendship
I also made a LO using this fun stamp set featuring my GREAT niece, Madison:
To create the pumpkins, I punched various sized ovals using EK Success punches and added a bit of texture using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. 
I finished off the LO with a canvas stamped elegant butterfly. I stamped the beautiful butterfly image from Fanciful Flourishes on a piece of sticky back canvas then carefully, hand cut the image:
For LO sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Once Upon A Sketch Challenge:
