Pumpkin Carving Contest - I sure hope I win this year ;-)

 

HaPpY hAlLoWeEn!

Posting the winner as of Sunday Nov. 1.  - "A" Emily's pumpkin had 57 votes when I stopped counting and "B" Ann's pumpkin had 5 votes! This is pretty much what happened the first two years, I almost get skunked! I have paid up and the winner is below holding her pumpkin. Thanks for voting - we had so much fun with this :-D



This is the 3rd annual pumpkin carving contest between Emily (daughter, 19 yrs.) and myself (Annie 51 yrs. young). No pressure, but I have lost the last two years in a row. IF Emily wins, she gets $25. WHEN I win, I get bragging rights for a year. (College kids need cash :-)

We don't tell each other what we are going to carve. We BOTH decided on owls! I guess the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree :-) Emily suggested I buy a Speedball Linoleum Cutter for easier 'peeling' of the pumpkins. It worked great!

Please vote for "A" or "B".  You can vote in the comment section below - anonymously if you like, email me: info@AnnGraphics.com or through any of the social media site I am on.

I will post the winner sometime on Sunday.

THANKS to all of you for voting! We have so much fun doing this and kidding each other. LOVE that many of you have asked if we were going to do this again this year :-D

  3. Ann we like them both and we know how difficult it can be when your kid keeps winning but I am afraid that Gram and I have to vote for Grand daughter's pumpkin again this year. Apply our vote to the appropriate pumpkin!
