Inspired By #190 - pumpkins ROCK!

I never did get into the fad of rock painting, or scavenging, but I do agree:

Pumpkins DO rock!  Especially so for Inspired By #190!

You may remember that I had a little coloring session with Tom on his birthday?  Well, this big guy that I colored has been waiting in the wings since then - hope he, and his pumpkin, inspire you to play along!  I found the most wonderful wood-like paper in my stash - did you spot that wood in the photo?

Sugar Pea bear, Pigment Craft Co. Pumpkin and stamped leaves

The view just outside my studio window is so pretty as these Winterberries change color... orange at the time of photographing, now they are a gorgeous bright red!


That's it for my show-and-tell!  I do hope you have some wonderful pumpkins to share with us this week in the Inspired By #190 gallery!  Thanks for playing!

I always love seeing this sweet bear, Michele! He looks like he's trying to hide behind the leaves. I'm glad he doesn't quite succeed. Your winterberry is beautiful. What a lovely view from your window!

This guy looks a little bashful, but he's adorable! I do spy the marvelous wood paper. It looks a bit mossy! Tell Tom he did a great job with his coloring... no wait, tell him he 'rocked' his coloring!

Pumpkins do rock but nobody rocks better than that bear! I can bear-ly contain my excitement at seeing him again! Terrific card!

Oooh, someone's got his eye on your winterberries, I think. ;) Fabulous card, Michele. I just sit in awe of your creative designs. Thanks so much for sharing. Crafty hugs!

That bear is always the star of the card, Michele, and peeking through the leaves makes him even more adorable. Love your winterberry bushes.

Well, there's that bear again...and I love every time he shows up! Your card design is so playful! (Lucky you, to have a daily view of those winterberries! (Speaking of winterberries, have you seen the Greetery's new winterberry stamp and stencil? Just sayin'...)

Your favorite bear is so adorable, and he may be a little shy, hiding behind the leaves. The pumpkin beautifully pops on the neutral colors. Love your clever sentiment strips!
The winterberries look beautiful! It must be so nice to feel the change of the season, looking at the change of the berry's colors.

I've always have been awed by some rock painting that gets done, always wanted to try my hand at it, but know I didn't need another hobby! lol Love that inspiration photo, those pumpkin certainly do rock. But then I get down to your card Michele, and oh my word....it rocks even more! I love that wood in the background. Not sure if it is paper or if you colored that, but it is stunning and so real looking! There is that big sweet guy, got to love him and of course his big ole pumpkin he found will savaging in the leaves. lol Super cute card, love the sentiment! Oops you did it again! Hugs, Brenda
