Tis the Season for Pumpkin

I love pumpkins, love to decorate with them, love when pumpkin becomes the flavor of donuts and bread. I love to add pumpkin spice to my hot cocoa!  Pumpkins are beautiful, reminders of fall -the change in seasons.  I had fun with this card nothing fancy, just chocolate brown ink and a very loved stamp of pilgrims.  I  have been inspired by simplicity in stamping  of late, so this stamp just has a shot of color, as you can guess Pumpkin yellow!  Some buttons, embossed paper, twine and mat with a lovely chocolate brown cardstock.   Simple but expressive.  A couple of years ago I grew little smoky pumpkins, all white and tiny. I put them in a hurricane vase on my mantel and they made the most "Martha" decoration I have ever had!  Beautiful.  A little bit of nature brought in.  I this past week for cooking club, tried a yummy gooey pumpkin butter cake inspired in part to try  by my friend Carol who makes such yummy gooey butter cakes!  Can you smell the spice?  I forgot to take a picture-maybe on the next one...
