OktoberFest Hop - 10/6-7

Isn't October wonderful with its crisp apples picked fresh from the tree, warm apple cider to warm your tummy on a frosty night; and, leaves of gold, red, brown fluttering to the ground. October is a wonderful time of year and this hop is a celebration of October and all the colors, smells, sights and sounds it has to offer. 

Hop along with our Krazy Crafting Crew as they show you their take on October and what it is for them.

For me, it's October that I first notice the crispness in the air of a moonlit night, and hear the distant drums from the local high school's marching band during a homecoming game.  While out walking the dogs at night, I hear hoot owls and yes, even occasionally see a bat (eek!).  Here's the card I made for this hop:

This shaped card file is available from the Silhouette Online store. I cut it using my Cameo, and paper pieced it.  I added a bit more 3D dimension to the project (e.g., the beak and the elevated flowers for the nose), and colored in the feathers and toenails using my Copic Markers. I used brads for the eyes as well. The paper I used is from FarmHouse Papers.  Drop me a note if you have any questions.

DO stop back here tomorrow when I'll show another owl-related card for the October Hop!
