Pumpkins Made Out Of Dryer Vent Hose

I made these at the craft club I belong to.
These were very simple to make
and makes cute Fall decorations.
These were made out of different sized dryer vent hoses. They are held together with wire. Then we just spray painted them with some orange spray paint, (make sure it is primer and paint), then we just cut some branches and glued it in the middle, tied some ribbon around it.
Now this is simple and fun to make with your family.

ABC Challenges: ABC44 Sympathy Cards

First of all I would like to say it is so good to be back . I took time off from the Design Team to spend time with my kids and Summers are always hard. Now I got my one son in college and two back in high school. My daughter is a Senior this year and my youngest son is a Sophomore. How time flies, Summer is over, back to school. My kids are getting older and I just can't believe in a short period of time my 2 youngest will be off to college in no time at all.

Ok now back to ABC Challenges:
Our Theme this week is in honor of 9/11, Let us never forget
September 9th - 15th
Just link your cards up Here

Here is my card for this weeks Challenge and it was a challenge for me, it is my very first sympathy card.
On this card I used a new technique for me, I stamped my flowers with Acrylic Paint 
(Folk Art -Metallic Pearl White), Amuse Satin Pebble Grey Ribbon, Stampin' Up punches, Black and White MFT (My Favorite Things) cardstock and I used a Sympathy Stamp set I got in Seattle a few years back, but no name on it. The saying inside says:
"Our heartfelt and Most caring Thoughts are with you"

Now it is your turn to make a card and she it with us over at ABC Challenges.
