Thankful Pumpkin

Here's another punch happy creation CASED from my Stamping Up friend. It's such a clever idea, but I never could have come up with my self. Two ovals and a circle make the perfect pumpkin! This could be used as a Thanksgiving card (I just finished our leftovers last night) or as a general thanks. I'm dedicating it to my parents (anyone know if there's a mailing address for heaven) for all they taught me. Anyone who spent time with my mom will know her best advice is 'If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all," and my dad, well he was a man of few words but taught me so much from his actions. I am truly blessed to be their daughter and look forward to the day we are reunited.
