Pumpkins, garden Frog and Cards

Look what I found in the pumpkin patch....this tiny toad...sorry the photo is fuzzy!!! You know that I love frogs :)
Here is the pumpkin patch. The orange pumpkin plants has MANY flowers....

Here is the beginning of a white pumpkin. Not as many flowers on this plant. Kailee planted the white seeds. I planted the orange seeds.


These are my cards for the monthly swap that I'm in. It's stamper's choice this month and I couldn't think of what I wanted to make...so I just threw these together and left the inside blank.
Tomorrow there are a few garage sales to go to and we already saw a great ad for an "vintage" estate sales that LOOKS good on "paper"...
I am going to play "Pay It Forward" soon.
That's all for now....
Warmly,
Deb :)

Cute card Deb. Looks like you are going to have lots of pumpkins. There is a good estate sale (as you say on paper) but it's Wednesday, Thursday and Fridy 10-4 I work until 3 so I can't go. Friday I only have to work 3 hours so thought I'd take a chance there might be something left.

First of all, I love toads, esp the little ones. And also, this is the first year that I haven't had a pumpkin patch! Hope yours flourishes.

I love those little critters too. When it rains and they are all over the street, sometimes I stop my car and chase them off of the road. My husband thinks I am nuts!

Vera said...

I plan to go to a few yard sales in the morning, hope we find some good deals....

I can't wait to see your pumpkins! Especially the white ones. We don't have a garden so I'm envious. We do have little frogs in the yard though:) Your cards are lovely. Hope you have great success at your sale and bring home lots of goodies to show us! Twyla

Hi Deb!
Your cards look great, I love the colors :) Pumpkins!!! I feel like it's fall right now. . .we are having thunderstorms!! Can you believe it? in August? Weird weather :) I'm going to a barn sale on friday. A couple of the vendors that were at the sale with me this past weekend are participating in another sale. I hope to check out some yard sales also. Hope you're having a great day :)
Your little frog....if you kiss him he might turn into a prince. My luck is that they just stay a little toad LOL
Talk to you soon,
Toni

Can I just tell you I loved this post. I love seeing pumpkins growing on vines and your cards are sure to make the recipient very happy. The colors are so "happy".
Umm, I could do without the toad. Never did manage to drum up a "like" for frogs or toads. lol! City girl, can't help it.
I hope you're day is great! I'm so happy to be back "online".

Queenie said...

What a cute little frog! I saw 2 about this size in my yard recently too.
Those cards are so pretty...love those colors that are so vibrant.
Wow, your pumpkins vines are growing so fast. I sure wish I could grow pumpkins, I don't know if they'd grow in my sandy yard,...I know you and Kailee are having fun watching them grow.
I wish you luck on your treasure hunts this week! Have a great day!
Big Hugs,
Queenie

Hi Sis ~ ewwwww, I just don't like frogs and toads for some reason. Glenn laughs at me all the time, cuz I scream when one jumps out at me in the garden...sheesh, you'd think I was a little sissy!

Good luck at the sales! Looks like you'll have some awesome pumpkins soon!

Hugz,
Lil Sis

I love the cards you made. It must be fun to be involved in a monthly card swap. I just joined a monthly ATC club and we have our first swap on 8/23. I can't wait!!

I missed out on the Pay It Forward so I hope I can get in on it when you post. I'm going on vacation Saturday so I don't want to miss out. I'll be back often so I don't miss when you post that.

I always love your cards, they are lovely. I found a little toad up by my house, it was no bigger than your little finger nail. Like your garden, I only planted tomatoes this year and they are not doing very good. Hope you have fun at the sales.

Aww, I love toads! I have a pet toad named Mister. He is probably four times that size though, he's a monster!
