Happy Thursday! No lack of craziness around here with everyone's schedules, so I am posting up a gorgeous little pumpkin that I made a while ago using the Cricut Artiste Cartridge. This was super-easy and tons of fun with the little twist that I added.
Some of my favorite memories of my childhood revolve around family television viewing--that is just the way it was back then--TV was one of our main forms of entertainment since we didn't have the slew of gadgets kids have now. I fondly remember watching the Charlie Brown holiday movies when they were aired on network TV since they didn't sell them on VHS at the time. Is anyone with me? :)
Every year around this time, we would gather around to see Linus sitting in the pumpkin patch determined to prove to his friends that the Great Pumpkin really did exist. Here is my Great Pumpkin with a little Charlie Brown Twist. :)
I used the Cuttlebug Charles Embossing Folder to add a bit of whimsical charm to each section that I cut out on my Cricut Expression 2. I absolutely LOVE that they named it after Charlie Brown/Charles Schutz. I have no idea how big I cut the pieces at anymore since it was a while ago that I made it. Sorry! When you choose the size for your cuts, remember that the size in inches will be the finished height of your assembled pumpkin. I used my CTMH Goldrush Cardstock for the body of the pumpkin and New England Ivy Cardstock for the leaves.
The little brad is from a retired Mini Medley Pack in Garden Green. Again, no idea what size I cut the greenery out at, but I embossed the leaf/vines with the Cuttlebug Musical Flourishes Folder. I just used the brad pushed through the hole in the leaves to attach them to the pumpkin with a bit of liquid gold...I mean GLASS! It is as good as gold though to me! ;)
So, now I want to hear from YOU! What television events did you look forward to as a child? :)
