Carving jacks

Hey there! Hope you are enjoying a beautiful weekend. :)

I'm working today but no complaints from me as it is looking to be a beautiful fall day out there... and those are the best kinds of days in my opinion... not too hot, not too cold, sunny and full of beautiful colors. :)

Which is exactly the kind of day that inspired this Pumpkin Kody card that I made for the SOG digi release earlier this past week. Considering the cool image, I wanted to do a bit of a non-traditional take on a Halloween card... I'm thinking this is the day before Halloween and Kody is getting all the decorations ready in time for the big night. He's got his costume all picked out and he has cased the neighborhood for the folks who are most generous with the candy, now all he has to do is wait just a little bit longer.
I much rather prefer that scenario to one of Kody acting like a hooligan the day after Halloween and smashing all the neighborhood jack o'lanterns out on the road. Oh yes, I knew a few of those guys back in my high school days! ;)

Anywho, I should probably go get myself ready for the day.
Take care! Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and Copic X-Press It
