Happy Halloween - Serendipity Pumpkin Die

Hi and Happy Friday!   Boy it's been a busy week!  My son is back home and mom's taxi service is back in service.  He started running with the cross country team at his new high school (he's a junior this year) and my daughter started a new job!  They both start next week - so lots of running around, supplies, check ups, and last hurrah get togethers.  I guess this is what they mean by "the speed of life". 

Today I wanted to show you a card I made with one of the new Serendipity dies.  Several new stamps as well as two new dies have been released for fall and winter! Today I'm playing with the pumpkin die and making Halloween cards.  The pumpkin can easily double as an apple and be used for Halloween or Fall. Just a reminder that if you like these dies, now is the time to get them.  The special this week is Free shipping on any order over $10 (US only) Offer Ends August 13!!!
 
I used some glittery paper and some "shabby" trim as well as a little spider button that I glued some googly eyes on.  Do you see the web in the center of the pumpkin?  To use this die for fall I can see a pretty flower in the center!   
 I hope you like it and that you're able to take advantage of the no shipping offer!  As always, thanks for stopping by - I wish you a beautiful day!

Ohmygosh. That die is gorgeous! They're so lucky to have you on this team. Your style is perfect for them....Jeanne, can we buy these dies only from Serendipity or are there other places too, like Simon Says Stamp or Two Peas?
