Pumpkins for Sale

     OK, we had two days of temperatures in the mid- and low-80s (F) with a nice breeze blowing yesterday and I actually saw some leaves scuttering around in the wind so my hopes that summer temperatures were gone for the year rose and we had a party last night.

     Then I listened to the long range forecast and we're due to have another 2 days of temp 100F or above over the weekend.  Sigh... I knew it was too good to last and that I should never have celebrated.  That's it - not another word from me about temperatures or celebrations until at least November!  That way, I won't jinx it.  lol

     Today's card has an image from Digi Doodle Studios with lots of pumpkins for sale and no, the kitten and puppy are NOT for sale.  :-D  I used lots of my favorite fall colors - especially the combo of orange & green or orange & brown.  This time a combo of all three of them.






































I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday.

Super cute card. Reminds me a little bit of Dearie Dolls images at the fruit stand, candy stand, pumpkin stand, etc. It's hot in Cocoa Beach but I love love love the heat. It's not hot here like Miami or Orlando and we always have a nice breeze.

I'm glad the puppy and kitten aren't for sale. CUTE card and wonderful coloring.
We went down in to the 80's too this week but it'll be back up in the 90's next week. I did see a bunch of pumpkins at the grocery store though so maybe autumn is on the way.
