My Cute Pumpkin Guy

Happy Friday Holly-Day!

This is my Friday Inspirational Blog post for Loves Rubberstamps.  I am using the cute Luka with a Pumpkin, and OMGosh how much fun it is to paper piece his little hat and pumpkin!  I doubled my Pumpkin fun with a CC Cutters pumpkin and kinda outlined it with a Copic pen to make it blend well.  Hidden behind those is a Fishtail Banner that matches the same first layer paper.  I also used some Card Candi called Metalique Copper and yes, I know, I have been using this Card Candi quite a bit but I LOVE IT!  I sponged around my out of the box Luka with Memento Cantaloupe ink. 

This little guy reminds me of my youngest son.  Big Cheeks, Happy, and always Styling!  lol.   When he is not playing video games and when I can get him to leave his shoes on, lol.  Does anyone else have a 9 year old who won't leave his shoes on?  Even in class, the teachers always complain every year that he won't leave his shoes on, lol.   He steps on the backs of them to crush them down so they resemble some kind of seriously worn out slip-ons.  So much for the million dollar shoes huh?  Yes, he wanted the spring loaded, make him jump higher and run faster shoes and within two days, they looked like the seriously worn out slip-ons we replaced them with, lol.  He is a funny guy.

It's amazing how time is flying by this fall.  Seems like it's hard to get used to it being November and Thanksgiving is NEXT week!!!  And I won't even mention the "C" word, lol. 

I am continuing our Challenge Theme this week - Thanksgiving/Fall inspired projects. 
I am also using the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 171 - I love these sketches!
