Hello Pumpkin!

Happy Monday morning all! The start of another week already - creeping closer to Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas and all those lovely card-making opportunities.

We spent some time with friends and their three children yesterday, who are preparing for a Halloween party - you'll see our contribution to this sometime in the next few days!

And, of course, there are lots of lovely Halloween/Fall challenges around at the moment, so this is my entry for:

Copic Creations - 'Orange'
City Crafter - 'Any holiday'
Simon Says Stamp - 'Halloween'
Charisma Cardz Challenge - 'Autumn/Fall colours'

Image: Mo's Digital Pencil, 'Punkin'

Papers: October Afternoon; Inkido

Isn't this little chap totally adorable?  What a cute image.  Coloured with my Copics, I added some highlighting and shading wiht my trusty Prismas and I love how he turned out.  I had a little trouble with my paper, for some reason, so his face has gone a little patchy but otherwise I'm pretty pleased with this one.

The pretty little heart pins and the orange paper were part of a beautiful prize I won recently over at Sketcy Colors - I received some lovely goodies in the post the other day - thank you so much ladies!

So, there's a working day ahead and I suppose I should be concentrating on waking up properly!  We (four of us) went to see Pam Ayres in 'concert' yesterday - hilarious! I love her quirky poetry and she is a delightful raconteur. Her style is gentle but wickedly mischevious and we had a lovely couple of hours listening to her, laughing our heads off and generally just enjoying ourselves. Needless to say, although the event was over by 6.30 p.m., we carried on talking and laughing 'til late into the night, so I'm not as bright as I could/should be this morning!  It was worth it though. Such fun!

Right, in the shower, a quick cuppa and off to work!

Happy crafting.
