Today we begin a new two weekly challenge at
The Holly and the Ivy Christmas Challenge blog

Please pop over to the blog to see the super inspiration from the DT.
For my card, I created a scene with Santa and a few over excited reindeer.
The scene was created using stamps from Katy Sue - The Spirit of Christmas.
I used Promarkers to colour the images. Watercoloured the sky with DI

Kraft scollop  edge card, matted with brown card.
Cream card - blended with Autumnal colour Distress Inks.
Stamps are from Dare 2B Artzy - Tangle Leaves were stamped onto 
a piece of card after playing with Brusho powders.

P is for Pumpkins

Hello again, thanks for your visit. Today at
Alphabet Challenges we have reached the letter P.
Tammy on the DT has chosen for this letter...
Please pop over to check out the DT's creations.
I have used the usual Orange and Black background to
display my design.
The pumpkins and the scarecrow are free digi stamps I found 
on Pinterest. I coloured them all with Promarkers and pencils.
Rather than make it a Halloween card, I thought it was just as
nice to say Happy Autumn - sending this message to you all.
