BITE ME!!!!!

Hello dear friends: I've been busy this past couple of days doing some Fall gardening, cutting dead branches, mowing the grass and, believe it or not, racking leaves!! Autumn is here and I love it, the only thing I do not like to much is the racking of the gazillion of leaves that are starting to fall but, all things considered, this is a minor detail in exchange for the gorgeous colors around my house.
Anywho, I have a card today using a little stamp I've used before for THIS CARD I made for my grandson who is a Chicago Bears fan. I've been a Dallas Cowboys fan since age 15!!! I'm 65 now so, do the math, LOL!! This time there is no football theme, just this fun image for you to enjoy. I will link this card to a few challenges at the end of this post.

I don't know for sure where I got this pumpkins stamp, it's so old and, back then, when I started making cards I never bother to write down or save the package they came in so, I apologize for not having this information, I've been looking for it, but so far, no luck.
So I stamped this image onto a piece of Canva water color paper with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder, I cut the image with a rectangular die and did the outside the box technique to make sure the bottom of both pumpkins were not cut out by the die. 
I colored them with SU markers and an aqua painter, super easy. The pattern paper is from my stash, the bats are die cut and the sentiment is from a SU set called BITE ME!  Super fabulous images and it's on sale now, woo hoo!! 
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

Here I mixed some old stamps, the spider web, from Stampabilities and the sentiment, from an old Flourishes set called "Witching you a Happy Halloween", with a new one, the big spider coming down from the web, from the SU set "Bite Me!"

I would like to enter this card onto the following challenges.

Oh, Maria, this just cracks me up! I've never seen an image quite like this, and I can see why you kept it. Love using my older stamps. Even some of the wood block stamps aren't labeled. Lots of creative details on this. So cool! Too rainy here for yard work. Not too many leaves have fallen yet, except one maple tree with its huge leaves. Good luck keeping up this time of year. I love the beauty of fall, too. Thanks for joining us at Double D in our Pumpkin Time challenge!
