Hey Pumpkin, I Pick You

Vegetables are a must on a diet.
I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread
and pumpkin pie.

Ah, you can just smell the apple cider and pumpkin pie.

And there it is – my love for Fall food. I love it all. Chili with cornbread, persimmon pudding, caramel apples, pumpkin pie. They're the flavors of my Indiana home and the reason why Weight Watchers loves me so much right now.


Candy Corn! Oh, I am in so much trouble. Pumpkin season just does me in! Weight Watchers – don't fail me.

Because I love you all I did my due diligence and found us a great recipe for Weight Watchers Pumpkin Cupcakes (only two Weight Watcher points!). I'm still trying to get into the Sexy Nurse Halloween costume – some day, right?!


My pumpkin patch girl is Copic colored, fussy cut and paper pieced. The pumpkins in the wagon are layered behind and in front of curly raffia. And the rest of the card is embellished with raffia ribbon. Love that raffia for creating Fall scenes.

I'm very excited to enter this jar into the Moxie Fab World Jars of Joy challenge. If you love old Mason canning jars, be sure to check out their challenge. They've curated some beautiful Mason jar images that just make me swoon and yearn for Mom's canned apple jelly.

I used the Perfect Layers tool to create all those gazillion layers – even on the fishtail banners. I'm thrilled to be one of the Ambassadors, because it means I get to offer all of you a 5% discount and flat-rate priority shipping. (Just enter catered5% at checkout.) I'm crazy excited this month because they're featuring me later on their Facebook page. Oh . . . my head is swelling.

Here is the sketch I used from My Favorite Things, the Copic markers and the rest of the recipe. The Kerr canning jar is one of the old canning jars my daughter and I found on our flea market treasure hunts, probably at Canton First Monday Trade Days. Bon Apetit!
