Paper Strip Pumpkins

Here are a few paper strip pumpkins that I made for my sister-in-laws Thanksgiving Table. I know, I know I am alittle ahead of time, but that is how I roll. The pumpkins are made from strips of paper held together with one brad at the top and one brad at the bottom. There is a piece of floss tied between the top and bottom brads. I just have to figure out how to display them. I am thinking about a tray with alot of paper leaves on it. Any suggestions?

Red Rose Birthday Card

Here is a card that I embroidered. It is a red rose and I used one of Martha Stewart's corner punches on the corners. I colored in the rose with red chalk and after it was set, I used the sparkle pen over the chalk. I think it gave a nice finish. Some how the top right got bent, so I put a gold peel off sticker saying "Happy Birthday" over it after I saw it in the picture. It totally covered it up.

New Cards from HSN Kit

Here are four cards that I made from a kit I bought from HSN. I bought it primarily because there were Victorian images, and a small bow maker. I think they are really cute.
