I LOVE pumpkins! (Probably because my husband's nickname for me is 'pumpkin', LOL). Thanks for the sweet challenge. I really have enjoyed looking at the DT samples and all the pumpkin crafted goodness everyone else submitted as well.

Vintage pumpkins is an awesome challenge and one I really enjoyed. The DTs' samples are totally inspiring. Sorry to get my entry in so late this week, but I've been away for the weekend with no internet access. Fortunately I arrived home in time to play!
