Tomic challenge 18

Happy Birthday Magnolia, and we are celebrating with another fab challenge Halloween and since we celebrating we would like to see anything but a card.

Boy did i have a hard time deciding what to do, we dont celebrate halloweeen in SA, and being Jewish we dont do halloween so i was kinda stumped.  I decided to make a pumpkin, and firstly the pumpkin i made when shown to my friend she said, wow! that sure is big, so i binned it and started again to make a smaller pumpkin, well this beauty you see took another four tries before it looked anything like the LARGE original.

I added lots of leaves and i made some twirly pipe cleaners that i dipped into some glittah.
And after deiciding to use the little Tilda with her broom, unfortunately i cant seem to find her name anywhere right now, i thought she kinda looked like little miss muffet so i made a spider using felt and some pipe cleaners, i had forgotten i had them, now i cant stop using them, lol.
And lastly with a led light inside to light the eye and nose features i cut into my pumpkin.

Enjoy the celebrations with us
