Long post!

So this is Jamie's pumpkin. We saw one like this at a Halloween party we went to last week. When we carved them on Thursday this is what he wanted to do. We saved all the insides and put them on a tray to look like sick... sorry!
These were our wonderful cupcakes that we had great fun creating we have spiders ,aliens and snakes in the grass.
This is Laura's pumpkin. I cut the little pumpkins out and she cut the big hole. I think it looks great!


Onto todays card challenges. This one is for Sketch Saturday. A bit quick off the mark for me, but I loved the sketch. Papers are Kand Co peppermint twist, imaginisce gingerbread man stamp and a craftwork cards xmas flower.

This one is for This Thursday. I surfed my 5 blogs and stopped at Juliets. I loved her circle xmas tree so decided to make a similar one using hearts with my art from the heart stamps. I used a scallop die card and backed it with papermania papers and added the tree. I've doodled around all the borders and the scallop edges and added lots of stickles to the ends. The pink star is a prima one.



Thanks to all who have popped in for a look and left comments. Its lovely to know that people enjoy looking at my cards and projects!

Lovely pieces of art. The pumpkins look great (I think that's such a great tradition, I wish we had it here in The Netherlands) and I love your cards. Very cool idea with the christmas tree in 3D! Thank you for joining us this week at Sketch Saturday!

Oh my! What a great idea for doing a tree! I shall have to have a try at this. I'll have to draw the hearts freehand though, so my tree might look a bit windblown :)

Love the papers on the Sketch Saturday challenge. Yes I'm quick off the mark this week. I'm usually number 70 or something. LOL!!

I like the pumpkin with all the little faces in it!
