“I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself
than be crowded on a velvet cushion”… -H. Thoreau
This is one card we made at World Card-Making Day. I think the girl on the plump pumpkin fits the above quote perfectly. I don’t have time for a long post so I will make this one short and sweet.
