CIE Just Pumpkins

Pumpkins, anyone? Well, if you're a Cards in Envy fan -- and, isn't everyone?! -- the answer is a resounding yes! Our CIE theme for the next two weeks is Just Pumpkins.

The former math teacher couldn't resist an oldie-but-goldie riddle for an interactive card that will be going to Send a Smile 4 Kids.    :)

Stampin' Up! blackberry bliss, tangelo tangerine, and mossy meadow cardstocks
Recollections wood grain and Simple Stories take a hike pattern papers
My Favorite Things square window stax with original, computer-generated font
paper-pieced pumpkins using various punches and Creative Memories oval system
Paper Smooches leaves dies; stash sequins; SU linen thread
pumpkins embellished with Wink of Stella
Distress Inks dusty concord, vintage photo, and spicy marmalade applied with Ranger blending tool
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Zig 2-way pen; Ranger multi medium matte

Spellbinders Nestabilities scallop die
Riddle answer is found by lifting up the window. 

HUGE thanks to SAS4Kids card maker Nancy Criddle. The front of my card was inspired by the adorable card shown at the right. Moreover, a CASEd another of Nancy's cards for the riddle answer.

We sure hope you'll enjoy us for our pumpkin challenge. Rumor has it there's a prize up for the grabs... and the prize details can be found on a DT's post.

Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
