The Great Pumpkin Challenge at the scrapbook stamp society: Its a cracker!

Hi there lovelies - and welcome to followers old and new!

At some point today over at the scrapbook stamp society challenge blog - here- there will be the start of the great pumpkin challenge: There was a picture here but its obscuring my sidebar so I've removed it!

I've got my entry ready - its using a digi by Sherri Baldy called Poppy the freckled witch that you can get here.  I've coloured her in using promarkers. I was lucky enough to win some of those fabulous crackers from Bev Rochester's giveaway the other day from whichcraftuk- and here's my first - filled with halloween pumpkins - ready for my two girls to pull on Halloween :

I've used the papers released this week from Bearly mine designs holiday-digi-sets - they really are fab! The chocolate pumpkins and ghosts are now inside the candle - they were from M and S! The pumpkin is actually a combination of two stampin' up stamps!

I'd like to enter my cracker into the following challenges:
