When an Easter Egg becomes a pumpkin ..... only at Halloween over at We Doobadoo

As the title of my post suggests, I decided to use some of my Dutch Doobadoo items in different way and had this "moment", I'm going to call it a "moment of genius" but my family may disagree and refer to it as more a "moment of madness" ... hee, hee, hee!

I have really been quite strict with myself about buying more crafty stash until I have at least made a small(ish) dent in what I have already, so with this in mind, I decided to try and turn the Dutch Doobadoo laser art Easter Eggs in to pumpkins .... here's what I came up with ...

I am quite pleased at the end result and think I can just get away with them being pumpkins (if you do not look too closely) ...

I have added some Dutch Doobadoo laser art feather and swirls to my pumpkins and finally finished them with some laser art buttons (for eyes).

The background was made using Polka doodles Witchie, Witchie digi kit and a few GraphIt white shaker pen highlights. Phew that's the first Halloween card made, just another 4 to go ......
