Jack of All Trades kicks off Week 11 of The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop

 
Boo!!! Welcome to Week 11 of The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop! I'm so excited at how close we're getting to Halloween. I adore the costumes and candy and fun! This week's card uses a few Scrabble tiles. I found a quaint little shop that sells the tiles for pennies. I'd much rather buy only the letters I need than buying Scrabble games at thrift stores and having a bunch of letters I'll never use taking up premium space in my craft area!

 
This is the first time I've inked up Jack of All Trades this season. I love pumpkins - and cute ones at that. I used Jenn's sketch at Try Stampin' On Tuesday, and am also adding this Halloween card to Pink Paper Bakery's challenge.
 


That happy face just makes me smile! I used Pumpkin Pie and Lucky Limeade ink and card stocks, as well as the Argyle embossing folder, Flourish Designer Frame (in the Holiday Catalog) and Brights Brads.
 
 
Oh, and last but not least, I'm adding this card to Hand Stamped Sentiment's Pumpkin Challenge. Ink up your favorite pumpkin - or make one - and add it!
 

I cordially invite you to join The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop in Week 11, along with any other challenge you like. Just add your Halloween creation to the blog hop, along with the code near the bottom of each post. When you add the code to your blog while you are in the edit HTML mode, your readers can play along, leave comments, and view the samples right from YOUR blog!

At the end of 13 weeks, I will give one person a $50 Stampin' Up! gift certificate! The more times you enter the blog hop, the better your chances of taking home the Grand Prize. You also get a ticket just for displaying The Great Pumpkin Blog Hop badge on your blog. Whoo hoo!

Terry, this is so adorable! I feel like this set has been so neglected this Halloween! I love the tiles in the frame - fabulous idea!

So adorable Terry with the scrabble letters. I like how you"framed" the letters. Having the pumpkin above them makes it look like he's got arms and is presenting the letters. Great card!
