Cute as a Pumpkin

Good morning Star Shines! Hope you had a lovely weekend and are ready for a new week.
I had a fab family weekend with good food and all the usual stuff; shopping, laundry and cleaning. But as I managed to fit in some crafting...all is good in the world!

This week at Cupcake Craft Challenges the lovely Louise has chosen us the theme to be Halloween. I love to make pumpkin pies (and to buy candy!) for Halloween. It's a great way to bring some warmth and spice into the chill of October, even though the celebration in itself isn't big here.

We're being generously sponsored by Cupcake Cards and Crafts with a paper collection of the winner's choice and by our special October sponsors; Polka Doodles who are offering the Pretty Sweet - Mini CD Collection and Scrap Affair who are offering a five pack of ProMarkers!!!!

Check our blog for the details and to see the teams fantastic work.

I'm entering:
For Fun Challenges: Must Have Leaves
Stampin' for the Weekend: Colours of Autumn

I used:
Magnolia pumpkin
Alpha Markers for colouring
White Uni Ball pen
Distress Inks and masks for the background
Exchangeable Alphabet and Numbers

Have a fabulous week!
