Well it has been a while and cannot believe that we are nearly at the end of October and yesterday Tesco had the usual orange pumpkins in store ready for Halloween. A few years ago we went on holiday to San Fransico at this time of year and came across a pumkin patch where you pick up a wheel barrow and fill it with the most amazing collection of pumkins you could image as over there they really do go all out to celebrate this time of year.

Now onto a card which is inspired the season and also the challenge over at friday mashup where you have to include trees or leaves and or the colour orange or everything together.


This stamped tree is the Lollipop Tree stamp from IndigoBlu and then framed with gilding flakes.
Around the edge sprigs of leaves using Cheery Lynn die Flourish Leaf Strip and a couple of metal embellishments and then a sentiment to complete the card.
The weather is wet and horrible so a good excuse to carry on doing more crafting this afternoon before settling down tonight to watch the final of The Great British Bake Off on BBC2 can't wait although I do have a favourite.
Take care and do check in again soon
