Sweet Li'l Pumpkin

I LOVE Autumn - the changing colours, 
walking the dog in the woods, with the smell of burning leaves in the air, and spending long, dark afternooons cooking in the warmth of the kitchen. Bliss!

So, I love the challenge theme that Sue has chosen for us at Totally Papercrafts this week... we want to see your AUTUMN cards/projects.

I've been searching for some twig style pumpkins for ages (to go with my hearts), but had no luck - so I decided to make some paper pumpkins instead.


I followed the amazing tutorial by Dawn at Dawn's Stamping Studio - honestly, these are so easy to make.
I just love the way they turned out and they look so cute on my mantelpiece.


 Don't forget to check out the amazing work of my fellow teamies, 
and this week we have 2 fabulous sponsors for you -

Challenges
    Make It Monday - Linky Party
    Ladybug Crafts Ink - Fall and/or Fancy Folds
    Simon Says - Anything Goes
    Crafting for all Seasons - Fall Colours


DP - My Mind's Eye, Ooh La La. 
This was from Crafty Emma's Store. I don't think she has this paper right now, but check out the CES Inspirational Blog for more of these pumpkins, and a heads up on what's new in store.
