Pumpkin Decorating Contest

Happy Tuesday my peeps!  How are you?  How was your Monday?  Great, I hope!  Mine was good - nothing too special but not bad either for a Monday - so that's a win/win - right?! :)  A couple that I met on July 4th at the pool and have talked to off and on since then invited us to dinner last night but hubby was working so I went without him - ha ha   We had a really great time and it was nice to be so spontaneous for a change.  Tonight, however, the 4 of us are going to eat at Red Lobster or someplace like that.  Can't wait - looking forward to great company (again) and yummy food (again).  :)
On another note, our apartment complex decided to do a pumpkin decorating contest for the residents this year and we could do anything except carve - whoever the 3 winners were would be displayed there in the office until Halloween so they didn't want the pumpkins rotting - hence the no carving. :) 
I didn't have a lot of time available this weekend to do one - so I kind of threw one together at the last minute.  When I took mine to the office today there were some already there and displayed that were really cute.  I don't know that I will stand a chance to win or even place but I had fun doing it at least!  And... it's one that I found on Pinterest that I'd been wanting to try out for a while anyway. :)  The one on Pinterest was just of the Houndstooth design - I came up with the rest of this one here.
Sooo... tell me what you think - does it look okay or does it look "thrown" together - ha!  (excuse the office stuff - I had to take it to work and finish it up yesterday morning) And I couldn't get a bow to work on it so I had to do the ribbon this way instead. :)  Oh and for those who can't tell or who don't do pinterest - that is Houndstooth DUCT TAPE - yep - DUCT TAPE! :) 
So what'd ya think?  Oh - and the winners will receive as follows:  1st place - $75 off next month's rent, 2nd place - $50 off next month's rent and 3rd place - $25 off next month's rent.  Again, I don't think I stand a chance of winning - but had fun doing it anyway. 
Hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by to say hello! :)
Lots of love and hugs,
