Pumpkins for Sale - Magnolia-licious Fall Blog Hop

Hello.  Wow, can't believe it's September already.  Happy September, everybody!

Today we're kicking off our Fall/Autumn Blog Hop at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  If you're already taking part in our blog hop and have arrived here from Karen's Blog, then you're on the right track.  If you didn't come from there and want to start at the beginning, here's a list of the participating DT gals in blog hop order:

Here is my project for the blog hop--I'm calling it 'Pumpkins For Sale'.  I've been working hard on this and only just finished it about 6 hours ago...yeah, cutting it close...ha ha.

I started out planning a roadside stand selling only pumpkins but ended up adding vegetables too.

These are my eggplants, cabbages and carrots.  I used an Extra Large Daisy punch (Marvy Uchida) for the eggplants, Medium Retro Flower punch (EK Success) for the cabbages and rolled up orange tissue paper for the carrots.

The farm cart I made from heavy kraft cardstock then covered up with popsicle sticks.  I made the pumpkins by wrapping circles of orange tissue paper around facial-tissue balls.

These are close-ups of the Magnolia images being featured:

Frizzy Tilda from the Sea Breeze Collection 2013

- Tilda With Lace Pants from the Animals of the Year Collection 2014 (I have her standing on a stool because the counter is too high for her...hee hee)

- Virgo Tilda from the Zodiac Collection 2014

- Tilda With Big Tulip Pot from the Little Easter Collection 2013 (I cut out the Big Tulip Pot of course and replaced it with the pumpkin)

- Jungle Sign from the Tilda and Edwin's Pet/Animal Collection 2009

Magnolia stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.
Check out also the stamps from Wee StampsWild Rose Studios and Candibeans.
