  1. Just plain old Jackolanterns. Happy or "mean"

  2. Love your Minnie Mouse pumpkin and your fun shaker card!
    Nothing too fancy in the way of pumpkin carving for me. I bought a pumpkin carving kit one time that came with some patterns, but it wasn't too successful. The knife that came in the kit broke.

  3. Fun shaker card.
    I have only done
    faces in my pumpkins.

  6. This image just makes me laugh when I see that kiddo with the big pumpkin carving knife! I was never a fancy pumpkin carver, and just stuck to the traditional Jack-O-lantern.

  7. Adorable! I love the shaker element.

  17. What a fun card, Meghan! Thank you for playing along at Double Trouble #41. (I once carved a pumpkin to look like a clown. I painted the face white to look like greasepaint then added red paint to the big carved grin, added rosy cheeks, decorated the big carved eyes, etc. Added red yarn for hair then sewed a ruffled collar and a silly hat. My neighbor provided some Dr. Spock ears. He was a hit!
