MFT guest designer

You can't win if you don't try...right.  When I saw this month's challenge to put together a pretty package my wheels started spinning.  I have fall on the brain wishing for cooler temps and watching football.  I had this pumpkin baby hat made for a local craft fair but no one bought it.  I think if it was packaged like this it would have sold for sure.  I LOVE this Li'l Pumpkin set from My Favorite Things.  In fact this was my first purchase from them.  She is colored with copics on vanilla cardstock.  Her outfit and pumpkin are paper pieced from the Spice Case DSP collection from SU.  The medallion on top is made with the die from MFT and accented with a SU button and twine.  I hand wrote "for your" then stamped the Li'L Pumpkin from the stamp set.  I always call my son "pumpkin" he wasn't born in October but thanks to a nice case of jaundice he was quite orange for a while.  Well I hope you get some inspiration from this or just a chuckle :).

  2. Hi, I'm a fellow carder but love yarn and embroidery so it was lovely when a friend mentioned your blog. Loved your gift idea and packaging.... sooooo sweet.
