Started on my Thanksgiving cards and am having such a time of it! I have made eight and thrown them all out. I was not happy with them at all! I made one last night and when I was finished, I was thinking of tossing it. I did not. It grew on me overnight. LoL I made this one tonight and, again, I am not too happy with it, but I think I will go with it and stop being so critical of myself. Maybe by tomorrow morning it will have grown on me as well! LoL

This is Pumpkin Spice Curvy Girl from Stamping Bella. I added the background scene and made some adjustments to the stamp. The pumpkins are jack-o-lanterns and I did not want them to have faces. I wanted plain pumpkins. I took liberties with my stamp! I hope she doesn't feel violated! LoL Entire image is colored with Copic markers. I did paper piece her dress and the pattern paper is from Carta Bella Fall BreakI dotted the buttons on her shirt masquerading as a dress (LoL) with Liquid Pearls in Orange Blossom by Wendy Vecchi. The sentiment comes from another Stamping Bella stamp set called Teeny Tiny Townie with a Pumpkin Pie. The banner die cut is from Amazon. Enamel dots are from Your Next Stamp. I used double sided tape and micro adhesive dots to secure everything. I used Tsukineko Memento Dye Ink Pad-Tuxedo to stamp the image and a Copic multi-liner to re-connect some of the leaves on the pumpkin images. Finally started using my Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform I purchased in January 2019! I had placed it somewhere that made it super easy to forget about it, but getting braver with my backgrounds and sentiments made me pull it out and put it where I could easily get to it when I need help. Which, BTW, is A LOT! LoL

I also want to follow up on the updated card for my grandson that I wrote about on this post. I added the bow tie and heart to match his onesie. LoL 

Identical now, right?!? LoL My daughter got a big kick out of it.
I would like to play along with these challenges using the first card:
