Autumn or Fall

Hi back again today as promised,
Before I get to the challenge I just want to say a BIG HELLO to lovely Betty.
 She hasn't got a blog but I know she reads  mine, and to say thank you... we had a lovely chat at the GNPE show in Harrogate on Sunday.

I can't believe it  'where has this year gone'... it's autumn already.
A lovely time... nature is full of beautiful colours at this time of year.

Our new challenge for this fortnight at Creative Card Crew is....

                              AUTUMN OR FALL

Our sponsor  is Sassy Cheryl who generously  gave the team some wonderful images to work with.

Other challenges to have fun with..
PaperPlay ~ Autumn
Sassy Cheryl's ~ to use a spellbinders die cut
Allsorts ~ colours of autumn
Crafty Sentiments to use a digi image

This is my DT card

The recipe is:
Digi image from Sassy Cheryl's... Pumpkin Waggon (girl)
Skin E000 E00 E14 Waggon E40 E41 E44 Trousers  E31 E33 E35 
Pumpkins YR21 YR04 YR07 YR18  Hat/ hair YR21
Jumper YR21 YR23 W3    Green G21 G99
Leaf paper printed from Crafters Companion CD seasons
Orange and brown cardstock from Bo Bunny 'back to basics'
Leaf punch and MS fence punch
Ribbon from my stash
I distressed the leaf paper and punched leaves with vintage photo TH ink
and the oval die cut with scattered straw.

I suppose over here we only use pumpkin to make halloween lanterns.
Last year I made a gorgeous cake (a bit like carrot cake) with the pumpkin flesh.
I've added  a link here for the recipe if you want to try it.

If you've not noticed check out my side bar and see if you can help my daughter and Asthma UK.

Thanks for stopping by,

Love cherie   //*.*\\
