Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

I found an amazing recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip muffins on The Twinery's blog a while back.  They looked so yummy, I decided to make a double batch and share with friends / neighbors.  Each batch made 2 1/2 dozen muffins... so 5 dozen muffins later, I had PLENTY to share.  They were so good, I think I'm going to have to make some more to give to our families on Thanksgiving!  Gobble Gobble!

These pumpkin recipe cards / tags took a little creative thinking, but turned out so cute!.  First I decided how big I wanted my pumpkin to be using my Gypsy.  Then I typed up my recipe and formatted in MS Word to the right height / width / location on my cardstock.  After printing the recipe on plain white cardstock, I placed the cardstock face-down on my Cricut mat (because I needed to cut the pumpkin backwards - later on I realized I could have just "flipped" the pumpkin on my Gypsy).  Finally, after cutting all my pieces, I was able to put together these adorable pumpkin recipe cards.
