Happy Oktoberfest!

Our neighborhood is throwing a large party to celebrate Oktoberfest and we're soon about to run out and join in all the festivities! And I tell ya...my neighborhood sure does know how to throw a party! There will be tons of fun activities and games for the kids, plenty of German food...and of course, BEER! We are having some new friends join us and I'm absolutely thrilled about this. The kids get along beautifully...what more can you ask for?

Anyway I was able to make a couple cards yesterday. I was thinking to myself that I've done Halloween and Christmas cards already, but completely neglected Thanksgiving! So I went off the Splitcoast sketch that I used in my last post to create this one...

I used some patterned paper from the Wonderfall collection by Webster's Pages and a Vintage scrap from Crafty Secrets. I've had such success selling on Etsy (thank you so much!) so I'll put this one up there as well for you to enjoy if you so choose!

I also created one last clean and simple card for the Wordy Word Challenge through Technique Tuesday! You still have until the 19th to play along so be sure and do so for a chance to win the Verbose set!


I merely punched a 1 1/2" hole through a transparent sheet and positioned it on top of my 4" x 4" card and then stamped the "joy to the world" sentiment from the Good Cheer set multiple times. Pretty simple way to make a faux ornament and this makes a great single layer (and easily mailable YAY) card!

Alrighty, I'm off for a fun evening. Hope you are having a GREAT weekend as well and possibly celebrating Oktoberfest too! :)

Such fabulous cards Melissa! I love your vintage card, the papers and details are incredible and your CAS Christmas card is wonderful with it's fun touch of bakers twine and bold punch of red!
