Happy Pumpkin Season

Fall day here today but this afternoon the sun made an appearance. That hasn't happened much lately. I was home today sick from work. I slept late today but my head is still congested and at times I feel achy. I did get a flu shot last week and it seems every year I get sick right after I get the shot. They say it isn't possible to get sick from the shot so maybe it is just coincidence. But I will likely go back to work tomorrow and live with the congestion.
        I had a little time this afternoon to work on a few cards. I am working on my MIL's Christmas cards as her birthday present. I need them done by this weekend because she's coming for a visit. But the card I have for you tonight is a Halloween card. Easy peasy!

I used the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch. The image and sentiment is from Bugaboo and colored with Copics and then used yellow Stickles for the smile and nose. The circle background paper is from my stash and thought the Halloween colors were perfect! I used a cobweb embossing folder on the black background and added some cobweb ribbon the the left edge. I finished by using faux stitching around two sides of the card. I can't believe how fast Halloween is coming up so I better get a move on.
I am entering these challenges:

I'm so sorry you are sick. I got my flu shot too but I wonder if it's the weather change that's attacking our head. Great sketch and what a fun bugaboo image and sentiment. Hope you get those cards done.
