Kitty Pumpkins

It is fall and pumpkins rule! lol. I love anything pumpkin. I make pumpkin soup, pumpkin muffins; I think I'll try some pumpkin yogurt. So of course I make pumpkin cards. 
The image is from Great Impressions and colored with copic markers. The pumpkins have diamond glaze and glitter sprinkled over it. The dp is from bobunny. The edges around the image are done with Stardust stickles. Brown dotted ribbon and a circle clip finish it off. 

Just in case you would like it here is my pumpkin soup recipe:

Cider Pumpkin Soup

¼ cup of margarine                                             1 cup chopped onion
¼ teaspoon ginger                                                ½ teaspoon ground cumin
2 garlic cloves, minced                                       1 ½ cups apple cider
1/4 cup maple syrup                                           1 (29-ounce) can pumpkin
1 (14-ounce) can chicken broth                        ¾ cups milk
1 pint half and half                                             1 teaspoon all-purpose flour

  1. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium high heat, melt margarine.  Add
onion, ginger, cumin, and garlic cloves and sausage sauté 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Add flour.
Slowly stir in cider, syrup, pumpkin, and broth bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, and simmer
10 minutes.
Stir in milk; and add broccoli cook until thoroughly 
heated (do not boil), stirring frequently.

Those kitties are TOO cute, loving the rich orange coloring on the pumpkins as well. I must confess that I love pumpkin EVERYTHING but I have never been inspired to try pumpkin soup. Guess I should give it a try.

Cheers, Holley

What a fun post - a two-fer. The card is darling and the soup looks delicious. It is time for the fall soups and we have had a couple already. Great job on the darling cat card.
