Thankful Pumpkin

I thought I was done with fall and Thanksgiving cards for this year (especially considering today is December 1) it turns out, there was one more lurking in there!

All my newer stamps are giving me serious side-eye but I had to use older stamp sets for the Retro Rubber challenge:

As it turns out, I did every square except for top right and bottom right, but hey, nobody's perfect.  My stamps, however, are perfectly retro:  Fall Whimsy (the pumpkin and leaf) is 14 years old, and Always Thankful (greeting) is 10 years old.  My hubs might be excused for thinking my craft room is a bottomless pit (but don't tell him that).

I also used the sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday:

My bad though, when I jotted it down, I put the background strip on the middle rather than towards the bottom.  Oops!  Challenge police gonna write me a ticket.

Maybe tomorrow I'll use some of my newer stamps.  No promises ; )
