Retro Halloween Harvest

I have been wanting to use this stamp for awhile; this little happy farmer is actually headed to an egg hunt with a wagon full of Easter goodies, but I masked them so he could serve my current purpose!  The Jack-o-Lantern is from Waltzingmouse‘s “Halloween Party” set, which is so delightful. The witch from this collection will make an appearance in my next post!

I wasn’t really where I was going to take this card (true of most creations, since I have trouble visualizing until I can get my hands on the elements–kinesthetic learner!); Mojo Monday’s latest sketch was on my mind.

As I explored colors and textures, I realized that I was heading back about 40 years to a kitchen far, far away!  The Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder, Woven, really helped me bring it all together.  The bottom embellishment was fashioned from my Spellbinders pennant die.  Signature washi tape on the back is from American Crafts.  I just love the woodgrain!  Now that recalls a bedroom far, far away when I was about four, living in a ghostly little Rhode Island town with my imaginary friend!

Get thee to a pumpkin patch soon, for the spirit night is upon us!
