Pumpkin patch

Last week I visited Wisley RHS gardens in Surrey again and I was stunned to see how much the colours had evolved in just a matter of weeks. We have been watching the pumpkin patch there grow too. Over the summer months we have seen some superb pumpkins and squashes growing in the experimental fields. If you follow me on Instagram here you may have seen a few of these photos 

I never knew there could be so many varieties! 

The autumnal hues at Wisley were stunning.

A few weeks back we saw a small arrangement of some of the ripened pumpkins.
However at this visit they had made a huge display at the entrance. How cool is this!

So inspired by everything I saw at Wisley I made my October artist trading cards and came up with these.
All the products, stamps and dies are Tim Holtz. The background is one of my distress reinker shaving foam makes I made with Daisy in the summer. 
Here they are individually

and one last group shot.

I would like to enter my coins into the following challenges;

As you like it 1/3 favourite non card project the reason why is that I can swap my coins and they are quick to make.
Stamping sensations 1/3 autumn glory
Chocolate baroque 1/3 anything goes
Try it on Tuesday 1/3 autumn colours
The library challenge 1/3 what to look for in autumn

Thanks so much for stopping by and for the kind comments you take to leave. I really appreciate and love reading them.  I am back on Monday with my fortnightly Visible Image design team post.

Take care and stay safe,

Bye for now,
