Halloween or Thank you at Cardz 4 Guyz

This week we have a choice of challenges for you at Cardz 4 Guyz - Boo! for Halloween, or a Thank You card. So if you don't celebrate Halloween, you can still join in! The challenge starts at 09.00 (BST) today, but I'm posting this a little early as I'm probably going to be offline for a day or two.

Although I'm not a big fan of Halloween I still decided to go down the Halloween route, using this sweet vintage topper which is from a set I won in the sadly now-closed Suzy Bee's Blooming Challenge. I don't have a pumpkin die, so I made my pumpkin by cutting 5 ovals with the second smallest die of the Nestabilities small ovals set and layering them together, with a snippet of green for the stalk, and some die cut ivy (a Marianne die) to look like the vine the pumpkin grows on.

I am sharing this with
Glitter 'n' Sparkle - Anything Goes
Cut It Up - Pumpkins
Dies R Us - Fall/Halloween
The Male Room - Halloween


  1. Brilliant solution to the no-pumpkin-die problem. I actually was admiring the pumpkin and wondering about how it was made before I read your post! It's a gorgeous paper pumpkin!

    The card is just adorable. I love the sentiment, the gorgeous little red-headed boy, and the design of the whole card.

    Thanks for joining us for our Pumpkin Challenge at Cut it Up!


  2. Oh Jane he's such a dear little retro image and I really like the words. Your pumpkin looks really good with the ivy. I really do like this very much. Barbxx
