Okay, I need a moment to take in that house created to look like a pumpkin. Where do you find these things?! I am sure they inspire new creations from your studio.

I loved looking at the painting of the little pumpkin house with the cat outside and then perhaps inside.
The softness of the piece is like the quiet in a foggy forest.

I hear they're quite popular with fellows bearing the first name of Peter!! Hee hee!


Love it Val!

serline said...

I would like to join the rest to explore this super cute pumpkin house.

Bella Sinclair said...

Whoa! Ok. I'm going to put some pumpkin seeds in the microwave and hope I get some supersized pumpkins to grow from them. What a great house. Your cards, though, are even more super fantastic! Love the colors and the wee little critters. Looks like your pumpkins are looking at their animal friends. :)
