Favorite Little Pumpkin

Hi Everyone!
     I made this card for my daughter, Shianne, to mail from college to my mother AKA Grammy.  When I was pregnant with Shi we didn't know she was a "she" so my mother always referred to her as "pumpkin".  She'd ask "how's pumpkin today?" etc.  And my baby shower was a Halloween party and I dressed as...yup...a pumpkin!  A big round one!  LOL!  Anyway, this Sally character from Sassy Cheryl's Stamps always reminds me of Shi when she was little.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Spooky Sweets set.

This card is for the Through The Craftroom Door Anything Goes Challenge this week.  We are sponsored by Oozak and you could win a $10 gift certificate to the store.  

And "Sally" always has a little ladybug with her...something else about Shianne...she was always my little "lovebug".  I always made her ladybug t-shirts etc.  A nice little trip down Memory Lane!  LOL!!  Thanks for strolling with me!!
