Orange for CASology

I am honored to be the guest designer this week at CASology after 
winning with this wild card.  The cue word this week is "orange."
After an interesting conversation with my son about what to use for
orange I chose to use pumpkins.  I told him about the cue word, and
asked him what he thought I should stamp on my card.  First, he suggested 
an octopus, and asked "Does it have to start with the letter"O?"  I asked 
him if an octopus was really orange.  Then he suggested a cheetah.  I asked
if cheetahs more orange than yellow.  Then he asked if it had to be an
animal.  Of course I said "no."  After a long lull in the conversation, I 
asked what he thought about pumpkins.  Very emphatically he gave me 
the thumbs up.  Definitely not my most original idea for the cue word,
but I'm happy with how it turned out, and the inside is stamped with a 
Thanksgiving sentiment.
