Hi all! Its the 1st of the month which means the beginning of another challenge over at Creative with Stamps, and the theme this month is “Pumpkin”. So I look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations featuring pumpkins and you have a whole month to create them!

Pumpkins products

I love pumpkins, something about their full roundedness really appeals to me. They are also a sign that fall is here and I LOVE fall! Who cannot love all those gorgeous orange, gold and red hues. I think my favourite fall memory will always be the one where we were driving through Shirley on the old Route 66, after visiting the Funks Grove Pure maple sirup farm. The stretch of road lined with trees bursting with the colours of Autumn, was just breathtakingly gorgeous, and that scenery will forever be etched in my memory.


So I tried to recreate these colours in my Pumpkin card, which was cerated using 2 different pumpkin digi stamps from Pattie’s Creations and QKR Stampede. I also drew in afew pumpkins to fill in the gaps. Can you tell which ones they are? I used my Winsor and Newton watercolours to paint them and when they were dry, I cut the panel using My Favorite Things scallop rectangle die and matted it on a mauve card base. The beautiful sentiment comes from CASual Fridays.

Well I hope you liked my card and I would love to hear your thoughts on Autumn. Do pop over to the Creative with Stamps challenge blog and see what my team mates have created just to inspire you, and leave them some warm Autumn love too!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great creative month… and maybe make some pumpkin pie (π) too!
