Pumpkins, please!

Hello friends!

I'm back from our glorious vacation!
We enjoyed the wonderful resort life
 with pools and a lazy river right outside our room ♥
And side trips to Disney World and Islands of Aventure/Universal,
dinners out and so much more ♥
You know they say coming back from vacation ...
you need a vacation ~ hee hee!

We haven't been able to sit still for more than a few hours ~
and yet have to already dash off ..
today is also the first day of school! 

So.  not.  ready :(

 Mondays are also The Project Bin day on my blog ♥
The Project Bin has 2 new gorgeous stamp sets just added to the store!
One of them is this very set on my cards today:  New Leaf.
It is positively GORGEOUS and 
perfect for those fall theme cards.

Here is a quick set of CAS cards I created:
 For this set of cards, 
I used my Spellbinder Nestabilities to cut the circular pattern first,
Then I stamped around the cut out using sentiments from New Leaf
and the pumpkin in varied inks, like Clearly Kelly and Ranger Distress Oxide Ink.
I fussy cut the pumpkin, 
then added it to the patterned paper background using 3d foam.  
The dsp is from PTI and it's from their Fall Leaf Prints collection.

I always complete the inside of my cards, too, 
but ran short of time so we'll have to imagine the inside being just as fun! :)
 Here's a look at the stamp set, New Leaf,
and it's available in the shop!

It's still in the high 90's here, 
I'm hoping it feels like a beautiful autumn starting wherever you are!

Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
