NAC#5 and the Great Pumpkin Blog Hop

DSCF5835

I have been trying to enter another Nacho Average Challenge for a couple of weeks…..when I saw this week’s sketch, I knew I had to give it a shot:

Of course, I had to be off-the-wall and put embossing where the sentiment was supposed to go….sigh.  I must have never followed directions as a child!  Here ya go:

I finally was able to use some of my new Howlstooth and Scaringbone DP…..how’s that for a name, cracks me up!  I paired it with Spooky Bingo Bits, a 1” circle punch and the new CUTE 1 1/4” scallop punch.  Makes quick work of these little scary critters:

Jennifer said...

Oh how cool! This card is just super! I'm not ready to think about Halloween yet...or at least I didn't think I was until I saw your card. Super cute! And your bathing beauties are super cute too! :)

I've been meaning to comment on your blog for some time now and never end up getting here. I love all your cards you share but I love the photos of your grand-daughter too. They bring fond memories of my girls when they were younger. Mine are still children but I think this age is just gorgeous. They are so innocent and carefree. I'll make sure to pop back more often and leave comments for you. Thanks for sharing all your gorgeous card creations.

I'm going to second the LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card! What a great Halloween card!

Terry said...

Those kiddles look so happy! I love your card, LeAnne. I think those little Spooky Bingo Bits are the cutest, as well as the strips of dsp.

Thanks for adding your card to my blog hop!

Hugs,

Terry

Although I DO NOT do Halloween, that is a cute card. I think it will look really cute for Christmas.

Tammy said...

Absolutely adorable!! And, I love the embossing in place of the sentiment! perfect!!

Linda said...

Fantastic fantastic card! I love it it.
And sweet picture!

Linda said...

I think your embossing looks better than a sentiment would in that corner. I'm kind of with Gisela on the whole Halloween thing - not my favorite holiday, but it's a great card - might have to try that banner look myself.

And in case you needed reminding, that granddaughter of yours is just gorgeous. That second picture is priceless.

DONNA said...

can Halloween possibly be just around the corner? I can tell time is ticking by how big that little gilr has gotten!!!! Wow we need to slow this life down! LOL! Love the layout of this card LeAnne and have to try one myself....Hope all is well looks like it from the photos!

Halloween will be here before we know it! Great card! Thanks for playing with the Nachos.

Rose said...

Great job adding the embossing folder. I like your DSO choices. Thanks for joining our challenge this week-

Sharon said...

LeAnne, I just LOVE your work! I stop by regularly to see what challenges you are creating for, and I always find inspiration.
And I truly love this adorable little halloween treat! I think you did a fabulous job pairing the DSP with the stamped images.
And I have to admit, I have that tiny tag stamp set, and I have never stamped the dotted outline, but WOW! It really does give that tiny tag some punch! Thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous card!
Thank you for playing along with us @ NAC, again!

Shannon Angel said...

Super Cute Card! Love that you did the embossing instead of a sentiment. Lol! I didn't put a sentiment down there either. I guess I'm still not good at following directions. :)

Heidi @ Stuck on Stampin' said...

LeAnne, you never cease to amaze me!! Love the DSP made into banners and the individual images. The "boo" tag is such a cute addition. I have to remember I have that set!! You know I love your work! :) Have a great week!

Gisela said...

Congratulations. I'm glad you won, that is one cute card.

Janet said...

I love this LeAnne - it is adorable. Love the picture of the little swimmers ;)
