Squigglefly Sneak Peek Blog Hop

Psst!  For another Day of QKD's 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop, click HERE!!

Good Morning, crafters! Welcome to the Squigglefly Sneak Peek Blog Hop!
Today the DT members are sharing with you sneak peeks of our release tomorrow over at the SQUIGGLEFLY STORE!
If you came here from LINDA's Blog, you are on the right track.  If you just happened along-make sure to go back and start at the beginning which is at the SQUIGGLEFLY CHALLENGE BLOG.
If you hop all the way through you will have several chances to win some prizes, get inspired, and have some fun!  One lucky hopper who comments on all the blogs will get FIVE Squigglefly digi's of his or her choice!

Today I am showcasing a soon-to-be-released digi image called Count Dracula Noah, by artist Cheryl Alger.  I love digi's because if you like this so much you have to have it before Halloween to make your project, it comes super fast, eight to your inbox!!
I used a sunburst design for the background of my card.  I cut a template to size, marking the lines first.  I kept the template pieced together, and one by one used each piece to cut out some Halloween patterned paper.  The first time I did this, I didn't leave the pieces together and it was like Humpty Dumpty -- I couldn't put the pieces back together again!!
Another hint when making this background design:  if there are words on the paper, make sure you place the template correctly so the words don't end up sideways or upside-down!

I printed Count Dracula Noah and colored him with my Copics, then fussy-cut him out and framed him with a large Autumn leaf.  I added shimmer to my card by using Stickles on his cape.  I embellished with a few foam stars in Halloween colors.
Now Noah is ready to sink his teeth into this year's Trick-or-Treating!!  uh, well, after he puts on some long pants!!!

Your next stop is Rhonda, but before you go, don't forget to leave a little love for your chance to win!!  As an added BONUS, leave me a comment on your favorite costume that you've worn, either as an adult or a kid, and I will choose a random hopper to send a little BLING to!!  Everyone likes bling, right?!

  The Blog Hop Order is below in case you get lost along the way.
Thank you for stopping by today and being part of our Squigglefly Sneak Peek Blog Hop.  Good luck and happy crafting!

What an awesome idea - I will definitely try this for any occasion card....thanks Pat! I love Count Dracula - had not seen a peek of him yet! And btw, I was always a tall ghost at Halloween because my sis and bros were all shorter than me. Alas, that has changed over the years.
