Well last year, HUKD'ers posted photos of the pumpkins they'd carved and a winner was chosen. Saxo_appeal ran it (see here hotukdeals.com/for…416) and it was good fun.

But last year's winner should be banned because they were obviously a pro. ;-)

Lol yup ban last years winner! I can't see the pics on that link funky monkey, can you?

I say lets do it, but no templates allowed!

Nope, no templates!! True free hand skill ...or something :giggle:

I can see my pumpkin and my wife's, but very few of the others.

I made one with my three yr old yesterday.

Hubby said I turned into a pushy mum because I was saying
"No, let me do it... don't touch that bit... let mummy do it" :oops:
I stupidly thought putting salt inside helps to preserve it... but when I went to it this morning the base had gone all manky :lol: So we'll try again this week

that Christmasshopper has great skill.

Sounds like meeee lol I'm soo bossy :giggle: Me & hubby usually get one each so we don't fight over it :giggle:

I bet ChristmasHopper's impending 1000th post is of a pumpkin...

This is a great idea! Would there be a prize?

I'll donate a bag of Haribo Tangfastics to the prizefund

Does everyone want me to do it again ?

Good thinking !!! i forgot about that.

Yup do it again Sax! :-D

I cant believe thats a year past already !! Wow

Ok folks the Pumpkin Competition will start on Friday 26th at 8pm and will run till 8pm on the Wednesday 31st of October.

This will give you all a good few days to decide what your going to carve out of your Pumpkin and to get it done, im not really bothered if its been stencilled or not as there is a bit work to be done either way. To be honest if someone is really good at carving we all might think its been stencilled, so that wont work..:roll:

All details,rules etc will be posted on Friday of this week, as per last year we will have a 1st and a 2nd....if i feel generous and if there's been a lot of entries, ill fire in a 3rd prize (if Mrs Saxo scrapes the coppers together lol :giggle: )

So with that all said and done - look out for the post on Friday night....:thumbsup:

I dont know if one of the lovely Mods would make the post on Fri night a sticky just so everyone can see it and enter?

I remember those templates - where do you get them from (I wont enter the comp !!) ?

Yikes was gonna have a go at the comp but don't think I'll bother if folk can do that :?

some of them are fantastic. I dont think I will bother either. not very artistic te he

I cant tell if someone has used the stencil or not, someone might be really good at it and not need a stencil so it might be pretty hard to judge.

i think everyone should just do one anyway and ill decide if its the best or not, i will take into consideration which ones havent been stencilled with my trained judgement.:thumbsup:
