"Pumpkin Season" is starting...

Hello stampers and a happy Monday to all!

It's only September 12th, but already, "pumpkin season" is here!  How do I know this?  Well, yesterday afternoon I went shopping for a few groceries at Trader Joe's and I noticed that the pumpkin merchandise is starting to filter into the store.  I picked up a box of Pumpkin Spice Jo-Jo's... like an Oreo, only the cookie part is pumpkin spice cookie and the filling is pumpkin.  Of course Starbuck's has had their PSL --Pumpkin Spice Latte --for a couple of weeks now.  At the height of pumpkin season Trader Joe's will have tons of pumpkin products.  If you like pumpkin bread, you need to try Trader Joe's Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread Mix.  Even if you aren't someone who needs to stay away from gluten, give it a try.  It is more moist and more tender than their regular pumpkin bread.

Have you guessed by now that I'm going to show you a pumpkin card?  Here it is...

This fun card was made by fellow demonstrator Shannon Carrier.  She used the very popular Swirly Scribbles Thinlit Dies ( page 194 of the annual catalog) to create the pumpkins. The leaves are cut with dies from the same set, but the stems were cut free-hand.    It is amazing what you can create with these very versatile dies, which also coordinate with the Swirly Bird stamp set on page 152 of the annual catalog.  This stamp set and dies have been two of the most popular products in the annual catalog.  The saying is from Greatest Greetings, a set of 14 sayings, all done in that cute font.  Check out this must-have set of sayings on page 78 of the annual catalog.  Thank you, Shannon, for allowing me to show your cute card on my blog!

May the week ahead be full of sunny days and happy times!
