Pumpkin Easel and Exciting News!!!

Have you ever own something in your craft stash that you got it because you know an idea for it will come to you eventually. AND you hold on to it for YEARS spring cleaning after spring cleaning ...then boom! Finally! The idea!

Well that is my pumpkin. It's a blank wooden paintable shape. I believe I purchase it when my girls were 3 and 4 because I was going to let them paint it. We painted ghosts instead...and I just held on to the pumpkin.

And now here comes along this adorable Tilda. Her name is debatable. I believe she may be called Witch Tilda but certainly looks like a Pilgrim to me. Well finally my pumpkin feels the love after 5 years and becomes my template for the easel card.

I cut some oval out and embossed them to create more of a pumkin with texture. Tilda is colored in distress inks.

NOW for my exciting news...besides the new look to my blog. Anyone notice my sidebar??? I was chosen as a Junior Designer for THE PIXIE COTTAGE!!! I am over the top excited. They have a wonderful challenge blog and Michelle the owner of it all, has a great store, featuring many stamp companies and Pixie Cottage digital and rubber stamps. I have a HUGE wishlist!!
I certainly hope you will join me in thier challenges and stop by and take a look at all the goodies. I can't wait to get started!!
Until then, I hope you enjoy my pumpkin...
