TCC Feature Friday- Pumpkin Petra

It’s Friday, it’s Friday!! and I’m going on vacation Whohoo!!

Sorry, I was doing a little happy dance there…I’m leaving for Los Angeles tomorrow and will be back next Friday.  I still have a million things to do before I leave, why does prepping for vacation seem stressful?

Here is my project for The Character Cafe Store feature Friday, using one of the new fab August releases.

I used the Taylor’d Expressions layout from last week for this, and I have to say…this card wasn’t supposed to turn out the way it did! lol

I used the great Halloween Bo-Bunny paper again, and really wanted the purple paper to be the focus, but I think it got lost a bit in the orange.  The orange paper is two sided, but silly me wasn’t paying attention when I put my glue on, so both ended up showing the same side!  Oh well, I added a black ribbon, and I think it’s alright.

I used a stamp I got last year in the Michaels $1 bin, and I just love this saying! Too cute and goes perfectly well with Pumpkin Petra.  Now, you may notice something about Petra; and by no means do I mean any disrespect to the lovely and talented Kendra and Kelly (creators of TCC)…but I cut Petra’s wings off

I know, I know, but I just wasn’t feeling Petra as a fairy for this card, so write your hate mail down below and let me have it ;)

I really connected with Petra…mostly because I was a pumpkin in this EXACT same costume for many many years! I’ll see if my mom can send me the picture- she made the costume and we filled it with grocery bags so I was a very round pumpkin. Except I made this “swishing” sound when I walked! LOL

I coloured Petra with watercolours, as well as the lettering in the sentiment.  I added some Clear Effects to Petra’s eyes and the pumpkin face.

Some MS glitter added some bling to the pumpkin.

I distressed all the edges of the paper with black ink and a make-up applicator…by far my favourite way to distress at this point.  I’d love to know what you use, I can learn so much from all of you!

Now go explore and see what the other team members have created for you, you can find their links on the right hand side.

I’m going to go try and get as much stuff as I can done before I leave tomorrow.  I will be sure to post a bunch of pictures from L.A. and will start bringing back my “Snapshot Sunday” feature.

Fingers crossed I see some celebrities! I’m hoping for Robert Downy Jr…I need to know why we have to wait until July 2010 for Iron Man 2! Seriously!

Have a great weekend, and I’ll be back next week with another Feature Friday AND the release of Stamp Insanity Stamps- I cannot wait for you to see these!!

Happy Friday,

Ciao for now,


Great card, lovely image. Enjoy your vacation. hugs Shelley
