Hello, happy Saturday.  Hope you're enjoying your weekend.  We went to a yearly gathering of friends today and our friend makes chowder outside in a big open pot on a wood fire.  It is delicious, and everyone brings food, so it is one long day of visiting and eating.  Nice fall day, cool and breezy and always nice to see friends. And, I'm not going to eat again for days!!!

Today's card is for the Penny Black and Friends Saturday Challenge #120  The challenge is Indian Summer.
I have used the cute cat with the pumpkin stamp.  Paper is My Minds Eye.  The fancy edged green square is a die from Nellie Snellen.  The word stamp is Art Gone Wild.  The border punches are leaves, Fiskars; the pumpkin border is Martha Stewart.  The gingham corner is also a punch by Stampin Up.  The acrylic leaves are from the floral department at Michael's.  Raffia bow for balance.

I'm also entering this card at Penny Black at Allsorts, a monthly challenge, this month, Punches.  And the sketch is from Sketch Saturday #122.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  Monday begins a brand new challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday and the winner 0f the blog hop will be named!

Thanks for stopping by.  Until next time..................................
