Here are my cards for October.

These were so easy and fun to make I made up 20 and plan on giving them to my local nursing home. :)

OK - October is done! I can't believe I have only 1 more month to go! The seven cards I did for Oct use the same stamp as Sept. I used some VERY old SU DP paper. I am so happy to finally be getting rid of some of this stuff!

vikkijo 05-24-2011 02:25 PM

Pam those are darling!

lharnish 08-01-2011 10:47 AM

Here are my October cards which are a remaking/refining of the ones I did in March. I like these much better than my March cards :-) I had some really technical challenges aka screw-ups with one particular card LOL!

This is the group of three but I did six of this card. The one is the middle is the screw-up!

CCC11 October (Remake of March) by lharnish - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

This one has the March card on the left and the October card on the right. I like October's version better :-)

Thanks for looking!

Here's my first offering for October - I made 2 of these. I love the Stamping 411 sketches on Saturdays for giving me a little mojo to create something different than my usual style!

I can't believe I'm on October already... maybe this will be the year I'll actually accomplish my goal of being able to make Christmas cards to donate to the local nursing home!

CCC11 Oct - Christmas Cheer by neptunem - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

neptunem 08-23-2011 09:13 AM

Those look amazing - and far more complicated than I could ever manage!!

I can't decide whether March or October's version is my favourite. I think I like them both equally - they're very different in terms of patterns but both appeal to me!

Here are my cards for October (early)... I wanted to get more Christmas cards done to put in my box to Operation Write Home. I have nearly 400 cards in the box.. and today realized I need to divide it into two large flat rate boxes because the guy at the post office said it was going to be nearly $50 to ship it to NC.

I made 8 of these:

Pam more then once I have taken a box of cards to the P.O. to ship to OWH, only to come home and repack them in flat rate boxes. You would think I would learn to just have one or two of those on hand and skip the first step. :rolleyes:

Here's my second (and last) card for October - I made 2 of these. I just love Penny Black hedgies but for some reason I only have this one Christmas stamp. Must mean I need to go shopping... ;)

My first couple of cards towards my Christmas challenge. Pretty crude compared to some I see but hey, I just started a few weeks ago and you gotta start sometime and improve with age :)
