Cute Card Thursday, My Time to Craft and Caardvarks


I've been really stuck for ideas with all these "autumn" themes, and also halloween - I just don't have a need for halloween cards, and that means I don't have much stash for these cards, but I've managed to come up with this card (it looks better in the flesh than in the pic), for 3 challenges - the Cute Card Thursday challenge which is "Autumn", the My Time To Craft challenge which this week is "get doodling" (I've doodled around the edges!), and the Caardvarks challenge which is "Scoring". I only have a really basic scoring board, so I scored the background paper - not sure if you can see this in the pic. I used a set of stamps from Stampin' Up (that I forgot I had), which happen to have a pumpkin option to use in the window (I bought the set because I liked the window and the interchangable bits to put in the window!!!). I used (for the very first time) my machine that prints greetings - I can't remember what it's called!!!
I used chalks to do all the colouring, hope you like! Probably the most basic card I've ever made!
