Oktoberfest Hop, Day 2

 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 DAY 2 of this hop:

This is a one-piece owl cut available from the Silhouette Online store. I cut it using my Cameo, and paper pieced it.  I added a complimenting striped paper behind the owl's chest, and also added rust colored paper behind the owl's head and wings.  The letters are from Jillibean Soup, and the sentiment ('you are a') and leaf are chipboard from FarmHouse Papers.  The designer papers are all from FarmHouse as well.

Now, why not continue on through the hop:  If you happened to stumble upon this hop, you can begin hopping at our host blog for this month: Jearise of Lorby's World ( She has a special give away for you on her blog, from our monthly sponsor: the Scrapbook Stamp Society.  Be sure to check there for the prize qualifications and information.

BUT WAIT!  Before you go, I need your help! I am participating in the "Master Crafter Challenge" sponsored by Sarah Hamer Designs (Pink Cricut).  Please jump over to Sarah's blog and vote early and often (now through 10/11) for my banner -- #44 -- so I can be a finalist in the challenge!  Pretty Please??
