Pumpkin Mojo and a Gypsy Giveaway!

Have you seen this weeks Mojo Monday sketch? Its a fun one and I just didn't want to let the week go by without playing along, Plus it gave me a great reason to make a few more projects with the Thanksgiving cartridge! {like I needed a reason :) }

Believe it or not these papers are from Echo Parks Happy Halloween line, I just adore the pumpkin print and hello its perfect for fall! That just goes to show ya' that you have to be willing to open up to all of the possibilities of your papers, stamps and cartridges, they are far more versatile than we think at first!

OK so I DID embellish the inside of the card so it will be pretty...but the real reason is so I wont have room to write a novel, because seriously if I have an inch of room I'm going to write and write...and write! Check out the gorgeous leaf border! I'm pretty sure I will never need another border punch, who knew the cricut cartridges have like every border you can ever want...and no extra storage needed..plus I feel like I get sooooo much bang for my buck! { This one was cut with Straight from the nest.}

OK OK I know you just want the dish on the GYPSY GIVEAWAY!!!

You want a gypsy....need a Gypsy....have to get your hands on this Gypsy now? :)
The entry is simple
  1. Sign up to follow inkingpink {this blog} *wink*
  2. Leave a comment on this post by midnight Wednesday Nov. 24 with a way to contact you.
  3. Keep your fingers crossed  {totally joking here folks!}
  4. Winner will be announced 10AM Thanksgiving day! Spread the word!

GOOD LUCK!

Stunning, but your cards always are....I think this one resembles a thanksgiving dinner place- setting. Makes me want to break out the fancy placemats!

This is beautiful. The colors caught me right away. I never think of embellishing the inside, but I am like you, I always write a novel. Fab idea. Love it. Winning a gypsy would be a great thanksgiving treat.

I do have one question about your card - do you emboss the paper before putting it into your Cricut to make the cuts, or vice-versa?

Hi I am already a follower. I thought I had entered but checked the post and did not see my name here.

I hope you feel better after your procedure. I had many back, shoulder surgery. I still live with the pain. It makes you sick all over to have a bad back.

This gypsy would make an awesome Christmas Present for my Granddaugther, thank you soooooooo! much for the chance to win.

I love your card. Echo Park papers are one of my favorites.

I will keep you in my prayers you feel better soon
