Pumpkin Time

I am participating in the FCCB #80 Challenge-Pumpkin Time.  The rules are simply to use a pumpkin in your project. 
I recently purchased a Cricut Cake machine so I decide to make some pumpkin cookies. I watched a tutorial by The Crafty Kitchen on cutting cookies and it was sooo helpful.  This is only the second project I have created with the Cricut Cake.  I think I did a better job this time, it was easier and quicker since I had practice.   I also decided to make a matching card to go with my cookie.  I tried to take a pic with the cookie and card together but it didn't turn out. 

You might be wondering what happened to the other cookies.  Well, we ate them all up. They were yummy. ;)

What I used:

Pumpkin cookie
Machine-Cricut Cake
Cart- Create a Critter
Base of cookie-Sugar Cookie dough (The Crafty Kitchen)
Layer 1-Fondant (Duff Goldmans- from Michaels)

Pumpkin Card
Machine- Expression
Gypsy- to weld base together
Cart- Create a Critter
Paper- kraft cardstock and Cricut 6x12 paper
Other- ATG, Stampin up Choc. chip ink
