a bit of mojo in my monday...

Hello all!  Did ya miss me?  Sorry I have been MIA for the last couple of weeks but I had sinus surgery that ended up complicated by a major infection.  The headaches were nearly unbearable but I am finally feeling a bit better.  

The mojo monday sketch challenge seemed like a really good way to slide back into my creative life.  I used Pumpkin from Our Daily Bread Designs and the super fun matching die that makes cutting out all the tiny curly cues super easy.
What I  used:
Our Daily Bread Designs Pumpkin and matching die
SU early espresso, pumpkin pie, very vanilla card stock
Spellbinders small and large ovals and Grand Caliber
