MFP Speedy the Cat's Friends #22

The challenge at Speedy the Cat's Friend's challenge #22 is to use a pumpkin on our cards. I used this free digi image by CocoDingo and made an Autumn card. I pulled out an old, retired SU punch to make the corners that hold the image. I like that country look and thought it went well with the image. I used Old Olive card stock and some dp from a K&C0 Halloween mat pack (thanks Heidi!). The sentiment is from a stamp set that Heidi also sent to me a couple years ago and was done in Real Rust. I tied a piece of raffia around the bottom which seemed to go well with the scarecrow. The image was colored with Copics and Tombows.
On a personal note, thanks to everyone for all of your get well wishes. I was given an antibiotic (that I'm allergic to) that's caused a truckload of side effects, symptoms, and pain. I'm hanging in, trying my best to deal with it all, but it's hard to stamp when you just don't feel your best. Thanks for your patience and understanding.......I hope this will soon pass!
Have a great Wednesday and take good care!
