Pumpkins are not just for Halloween!

I just bought a pumpkin the other day, got to decide what to cook it into now, but it has to be Slimming World friendly, in other words as healthy as possible.
Are we sprouting feathers over at Quirky Crafts? You bet we are! The challenge is as light as a Quirky feather, any project with birds and/or feathers of any kind will do.

We have three great sponsors, Sweet Pea Stamps, Bugaboo and Crafty Ribbons. The image I used this time is from Sweet Pea Stamps, it is by Sandra Caudwell and is called Pilgrim Crow. Sweet Pea are closing down on 25th November sadly so this could be your last chance to win some digis from them.

I coloured the digi with Promarkers and die cut it with Spellbinders dies, the grid die is by Tonic I think. The spotty ribbons are from Crafty Ribbons, and the greeting is stamped with a clear Craftwork Cards set. I added real feathers - I have a small box full and most of them were not suitable colours for this card. Finally some Tim Holtz paper string (twine) tied in a bow with a feather charm.

So hop on over to Quirky Crafts to see some fabulous examples and to play along, and maybe win prizes. 

My card has hopped into the following challenges:
Digi Chooseday - reds, orange or brown (Tues)
Papertake Weekly - anything goes (Tues)
Crafty Gals - #44 Autumn Hues (Wed)
Cute Card Thursday - food or drink (Thurs)
Left of Centre - things with wings (Fri)
Allsorts - ribbons and bows (Sat)

ABC - U for unlimited (15th Nov)
Cards Galore -use a stamped or digi image (Nov)
Die cut divas - warm and cozy (Nov)
