This Morning's Creations

I made these cards this morning before leaving for work. I wanted to use these three dimensional pumpkins that I found in my stash and some of the scraps from previous cards.

Cardstock is SU, patterned paper scraps, three dimensional pumpkin, brads and "fall" rub-on from my craft stash. Ticket punch by SU.
I ran out of time and I know that this card needs "something" but it was my first attempt at a crossover pocket card. White cardstock (Michael's), patterned paper from a stack in my stash and the stamp is from SU "The Snowflake Spot".
The lesson that I learned from this card is that unless you have tons of the same patterned paper, do NOT chose a design that has a distinct pattern (ie: you need to be able to read the word joy). This wasted alot of paper since I was unable to use the same square of paper for both sides of the card.

Cardstock: SU, patterned paper: stack scraps, three dimensional pumpkin from my stash, circle leaves are stickers from my stash, ribbon from my stash, ticket corner punch from SU.

yeah...before I left for work this morning I raced like a mad woman because I only gave myself 30 minutes to get ready, I thought sleep sounded really good.
Love these cards, I can barely brush my teeth in the morning! LOL

I know, I'm a dork in the morning with tons of energy. Most nights at 8:30 I'm nodding off in front of the tv so it does catch up to me.
