Cloud 9 Blog Hop {October}


Hi everyone!  I'm sharing my card for this month's Cloud 9 Blog Hop!  I didn't get a chance to photograph my card until last night for my post so you get to see it today instead!  When I originally sat down to work on my card, I had an idea but when I pulled out my stamps, I realized that I didn't have the Pocketful Halloween stamps.  So my idea fizzled.......Until I thought about what really inspired me about this photo this month.  For me, it was the patterns and the pumpkins.  But then I kept looking at the door too.  So I pulled out my window die and made it white and adding some black and white polka dot curtains!

  Here's the inspiration photo from this month.  Gosh, how I wish my front porch could look like this!  Have a great fall day!!

Hi Amy! love your take on the photo. Love the orange polka dots and the pumpkin in the window. Still a CAS window card and that is hard to do.

Amy, I just love how crisp and clean this looks! Your polka dotted curtains are fabulous, and the pumpkins are so cute sitting just inside the window.

Everytime I see someone use this die I tell myself I have to get it. Someday I'm actually doing to do that..haha. Love this!!!

Amy what a stunning scene you've created! Did you hand cut those curtains or are they a die? If so, I need that die!
