One of my top ten favorite digi shops EVER!

 It's time for this week's For Fun Challenge to be announced and I'm especially happy to report that this week's sponsor totally rocks my world. It's MelJen's Designs, home to more adorable animal (and other) digi stamps than you can shake a stick at!
This week's challenge involves using pumpkins (not Jack o' Lanterns, unfortunately, but hey, we could all probably stand to have some fall cards we can still use once the 31st is over.) The winner will get some goodies from our sponsor, so don't miss this one.

I decided to use this yummy pumpkin pie as the central image, then added a second MelJen's pumpkin/leaf design on pop dots to fill it out. I cut out and layered the pie and the leaf to add dimension, then traced the edges with Stickles.
Here's another angle so you can see the popped up parts more clearly. I couldn't resist adding a few tiny bat brads to keep it Halloweenie!

And to wind it up, how about a pic of my adorable foster mice, Sookie and Tara. They're big fans of pasta shells, and I'm a big fan of their ginormous ears!
