Yes, it's that time of year again!
(referring to Halloween, not election time, by the way)

Every year I try to make clever pumpkin carvings to adorn my porch.  This year, I was thinking a Presidential theme... i.e. Bush and Kerry.

I no longer have a decent photo-editing program, so I can't create my own stencils anymore.  Anyone know of some on the Internet, or has anyone already made them?

Thanks a billion,
Jillie

I ended up printing out the Pumpkin Poll one.

my pumpkin this year is a big letter w with an x over it (like a no smoking sign). i made a stencil in word, using a large letter w and there was a shape for the x sign. it turned out really well, and looks great lit up. Plus, it wasn't too complicated to carve, which is good since last year I tried to make Spongebob and was distraught when his whole face caved in. Anyway, I digress. Good luck Smiley

Hi! just found this section of the site - it's awesome!  Grin anyhoo, I study politics (British mainly but I've been learning about the USA system - is tres interesting) but I wanna turn up to class/exam/canteen wearing a witty t-shirt...but can i find any stencils??
I know you crafty lot will say (a) use the search engine - done that!
(b) make your own (you don't know what you're dealing with - i've never stencilled before!)
so any tips on how to (a) find some cool n quirky stencils
(b) perhaps make em (in v.v.v.v. simple terms!)
thanks!
