Ghostly Pumpkins

I recently met a fellow blogger who lives in the same town I do.

We had a lovely lunch and talked for 3 hours!

I'm so glad we met and can't wait to get together again.

Next time we'll have stamps in hand.

Her name is Nance Salkeid and she's on the Design Team at

I saw the inspiration photo for this challenge 
and had this card that I really wasn't going to post.

It kind of reminded me of the prompt.

Black, white and orange are covered.

I've mentioned before about the fact that I don't like messy chalkboards.

This is pretty messy and gives me the heebie jeebies!

That's Halloweenish, isn't it?

Thanks for stopping by.

How lovely to have met up with Nance Bonnie. Sounds as if you're both going to have some fun together.

I love your card. You've really captured the look of a chalk board. Barbxx

LOL! Well, it doesn't give me the heebie jeebies at all Bonnie! I think it's pretty and just perfect for fall! I've never even attempted the chalkboard look!
That's wonderful about meeting another crafter! Sounds like fun times ahead!

Great design. Black background gives gloomy character of this card. Great Halloween card.

Glad you had a chance to meet another stamping friend that lives in your town.

What fun to meet up with another stamper! I love my get togethers with Loll and Christine (calex on SCS). I know what you mean about messy chalkboards - it's why I rarely use that technique! But for Halloween, it's a perfect card!

How lovely to catch up with someone who enjoys your hobby as much as you do.

I'm with you with chalkboards, but have to admit this is a SUPER DUPER card I love it. It looks like you took chalk to the board a fabulous effect.

Love this look! Awesome card Bonnie!

Bobby said...

The only thing about chalk that give me the heebie jeebies is when it screeches on the chalkboard. ;) I think the card is great. It's even greater that you've found a nearby friend to craft with. It's wonderful, and I speak from experience, although Michele lives across the state and not in the same city.

Love your card Bonnie!
I share Bobby's phobia so with your card I'm all good ;o)

Hi Bonnie! This is so great! I love a chalkboard look, and I wish I seen more of it lately!! Thanks for joining us at The Challenge!

Ooh! I love the chalkboard pumpkins you created. I'm with you that real life chalkboards give me the heebie geebies (all that dust) and they are messy, as is the chalkboard look, but I really, really like this card. It works!
