Pumpkins on the Doorsteps

Unfortunately, I don't have any pumpkins in my garden this year.  I do have corn stalks that I can tie in a bundle to decorate my porch.  Think I might have to buy a few pumpkins too.  Just doesn't look right with yellow neck squash. LOL

I used a piece of woodgrain designer paper for the sentiment.  It was hard to match some of the wood colors but by adding some browns to the grayish woodgrain piece, I came close.  I came up with this idea of the wood plague when I woke up this morning at 4:00.  That is when my husband's alarm goes off on week days and we forgot to disable it before we went to bed.  So I have been up since 4:00 on a Sunday morning.  Ugh.  Hope I don't fall asleep in church today. (smile)
