It's a boycott!!!

Hi all, I apologise if you have come here today expecting to see pretty cards. Normally I would have a card for Kristina Werner's Colour Inspiration challenge at this time. However, I am refusing to play this week! Why? you's Pumpkin Pie!

Everywhere I go at the moment I keep seeing it....even my own beloved sister has been torturing me with PP this week. It's the final straw that Kristina has included this dreaded colour in 2 challenges in a row!!!

I will not participate. I refuse to condone this excessive use of PP. I realise that it is Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, but this must stop. Surely there are other colours you can use....what is with the PP obsession????? What is wrong with some PINK, or PURPLE, or even blue or green...or anything but PP?

So, I am going to go and make some cards for the swap I am in....NO PP in sight (red, olive and vanilla....can you guess what kind of cards they are?). Then I'm going to make a couple of cards for some Hanna forum challenges on SCS. There will be no usage of PP in MY house today....or any other day in the near future....I am over it!

Hope you are all having a lovely (PP free) day, wherever you are.

HA!!! I love how people get mad at some colors.

I kind of feel that way about Baja Breeze - it underwhelms me.

You know what you should do? Bake yourself a pumpkin pie!!

oof. you are quite right. i support you, my sister!!!
"power to the pumpkin-hatin' people!!!" i say!

(ps: wanna hear an even worse PP violation? every autumn, dairy queen (an american soft ice cream fast food franchise) markets a seasonal so-called "treat" known as a "PUMPKIN PIE BLIZZARD" which consists of vanilla ice cream with bits of ersatz pumpkin pie MIXED INTO IT!!!!!!!!!! (oh the horror!) (even more horrifying: it is apparently one of their most popular seasonal creations!) (EEEEEEEEEEW!)

I've never been a fan of orange, as a general rule, but you know what? I do LOVE PP cs :) Sorry, Sweetie! If it makes you feel any better, I have been PP-free for weeks.

Uh-oh. I just finished up some Halloween cards that used PP as a layer. But there is also a LOT of purple and green going on, so it kind-of evens out. Right? Sigh ....

Oh my gosh are tooooo FUNNY! Don't hate me but I LOVE pumpkin pie but I don't think there is an EE color I don't LOVE! I know...I'm flawed in your eyes but I can't help it! Do you have a tramatic pumpkin story from when you were a kid??? LOL Have a GREAT weekend Kristie...with or without your PP CS! {BIG SMILES}
