Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge ~ Glittery Gords


We're baaack, and just in time to enjoy this fabulous glittery gourds.  I  love cream and gold - makes me happy, and with some newly released pumpkin dies by Verve Stamps, it was a match made in heaven.

I went extremely CAS on this card because while creating the card, we were having a big weather storm with lots of wind and rain and our power blipped out twice while I was making this card, causing the computer to shut off, so wanted to make sure I could get a post up and done in time should a power outage have occurred!!     

I embossed these adorable pumpkins from Everything Nice in gold (sorry, the lighting didn't do the gold justice!),  die cut them with the co-ordinating Pumpkin Spice die set and paired them with a recent Sunday Stamps sketch.   The sentiment is from Autumn Blessings.   Went extremely CAS on this card because while creating the card, we were having a big weather storm with lots of wind and rain and our power blipped out twice while I was making it so wanted to make sure I could get a post up and done in time.

We have another big storm coming in tonite so fingers crossed we don't lose power as it is suppose to be worse than yesterdays....high winds and lots of rain.   My poor son is reffing soccer this weekend so good chance he will get soaked.  Thankfully, games are at our soccer club so it is nice in close in case he has to pop home between games to get warm and dried off!   The life  and times of a soccer mom!

Hope the storm blows out of your range! Too scary, especially when power outages are involved. We have 'winter'; fingers crossed we can make it to my mom's today! Your glittery pumpkins are absolutely spectacular! What a great translation of the inspiration photo! Thrilled to one of the GDs for this challenge and delighted to have an opportunity to play alongside you!
