CarvedPumpkinFace trick or treat Tag

Had worked Memorial Day & 4th of July. Asked for Mon off and was surprised to have all 3 days off. Happy to have 3 day weekend off from work at Hallmark.

Found a dog this morning that had wandered into my front yard. The dog had a pink collar & no id and appeared very tired & thirsty. Had daughter bring me Daisy's leash; did not want the dog to wander off and not find its way home. Gave water and then walked around neighborhood to see if anyone was looking for the dog. Posted photo on Shortly after posting photo I got a phone call from owner. Walked the dog home 3 blocks away. Owner told me name was Greenley (not sure of spelling, named for a character on soap All My Children, my daughter's first name is a character on soap Young & Restless so I totally get this). Glad to have found owner.

For a distressed look I sanded the orange dotted cardstock before die cutting with Poppy pumpkin die. Die cut the pumpkin stem & vine pieces using scraps. Die cut the tag using a Gina Marie Designs die. Stamped Tim Holtz sentiment. Attached some ribbon that complements the sentiment.
