Pumpkin Carvings and Birthday Wishes

While Halloween isn't my most favourite holiday of the year (it was more fun as a kid!), I still love getting in the spirit by carving pumpkins! Each year I try to do something different and unique. Here is a series of pumpkin carving pictures from the past couple years:

My hubby's masterpiece, Halloween 2011
My pumpkin carving, Halloween 2011
Halloween 2012 (mine is the maple leaf)
And finally, my latest carving:

Hope you all have a safe and Happy Halloween! I look forward to seeing all the kids in their costumes tonight!
On another note, it is my niece's 3rd birthday today!
I pulled out one of my older designs (and one of my favourites!) and thought it would be perfect for sweet Janna:
This cute little deer comes from a retired Stampin Up set called Forest Friends (one of my favourites). I paired it with wildflower designer paper and added a paper flower with a brad in the center, sponging the edges with Rose Red ink. I thought the sentiment was a perfect choice to go along with the deer. Did you notice the play on words? :)

Here's wishing Janna a fun day filled with sunshine, laughter, hugs and kisses!
