Pumpkin happiness

Good morning stampers!
Happy Saturday everyone! Although summer has many more months here in sunny southern California, the fall colors are some of my favorites. So with that in mind, I pulled out this 6 x 6 paper pack by MM and made a card with the inspiration from the colors.
On the home front, my oven blew up a few weeks ago! Well it didn't really blow up, it just made a ton of noise and sizzled and fried and died! So I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new stainless range this weekend! I miss my steamed veggies every day! Thank goodness for BBQ's! So hooray, a self cleaning, smooth top, stainless back splash oven is coming! (next to buy will be a stainless frig, it isn't very old though so it will be an elective purchase). We do not have gas here, and no propane tank so we do the electric thing. Good thing we didn't have a propane tank last October when the huge ranging fires swept through, and came so close our garden hose burned! Hello! If there had been a propane tank nearby, that would have been the end of it! So I think electric is a good thing in a high risk fire area.
I do count my blessings to be sure!
Card recipe: CS-White-PTI-black-Bazzill. PP--MM-. Stamps: image-Inkadinkado, sentiment-SU! Ink-Versa fine black onyx, gold bling ,from stash , ribbon-Michael's.
Have a great weekend, be well and enjoy!

This is beautiful. I love fall colors, too bad we don't have them around here. I feel like I am really behind this week. Can't get anything done. Sorry about your owen...don't have any experience with that, but my dishwasher was out for a while, what a mess to get a new one. Plus, this new, more expensive, one is not as good as the old one. What can you do.
Well, I am glad you are creating. I will have to check your blog later, I think I might have missed a day or two. Alex just woke up...he was taking a "little" nap. I have to go feed him his dinner.
