Our Jack O'Lantern...

"It's cold and we are sleepy,
the air is cold and still.
Our jack o'lantern grins at us
Upon the window sill..."

~ Unknown Author ~
My 9 year old daughter created this original artwork!
I transformed her sketch into digital images to share...
so from both of us ~ please enjoy!
 Above, printable bookmarks or tags in brown and orange hues.
They look great printed on cream-colored card stock.

Below, printable bookmarks or tags for kids
(or kids at heart!) to color... this was my daughter's idea.
 Below, an 8.5" x 11" printable sheet of journal or note cards in 2 sizes.
I love the texture and shading on this jack o'lantern.

Here are the free graphics
& sources used in these images:

September's Flower

"Now violet and rose have had their day,
I'll pluck the soberer
asters with good grace
And call September nothing but September."

~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox ~

I used a black ink pen to outline most of the petals and leaves...
it was fun "working" on them this afternoon.

Borne thro' the strife and the thunder of war;

Float ever proudly from mountain to shore."
