Putrid Pumpkin by Kirk & Bradley

I received a box of finishing by Cindy McKown!  I am always thrilled to see this package arrive in the mail and Cindy never disappoints.  This is Putrid Pumpkin by Kirk & Bradley and it will go with the other two Halloween bottles she has finished for me.

I forgot to post the finished photo of Santa by Joy Juarez.  The beard is stitched with two strands of four colors of Wisper in random long and short stitches and then brushed with a Bunka brush--lightly by the way!  I will be getting this one framed along with the Santa Kiss with baby.
