Double D - Octoberfest


 Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
Diane is our host today and her theme of choice is:
(anything to do with October - even Halloween)

and here's an inspiration board she has created to help get you started . . .

 Today's card is a fun & fast creation!
I've let the background paper do most of the work. 
I selected different papers from the Paper Studio 'Four Seasons 3'
8.5 x 11 paper pack then simply added a sentiment.

Dies used for my sentiment are:

Frantic Stamper 'Fall Words' (DIE 10271)



Memory Box 'Share the Happiness' (30007)


  I hope you've found inspiration from today's creation!  
The prize that you'll be playing for this time around is:

 Remember, it's a random draw for the winner so it could be YOU!!

You'll want to be sure to pop over to the Double D Challenge Blog to see all the details and amazing samples offered up by our VERY TALENTED design team ladies!!

  1. Beautiful card and love the amazing colours. Sending hugs Sis

  2. I love your card! Nice and flat and so easy to mail as well as bright and cheerful! I think you checked all the boxes for me with this one!

  3. Love the colours of your gorgeous Fall

  4. What a riot of colour Darlene - just like a walk in the forest at this lovely time of the year! Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!

  5. Very festive and fall-ish Dar! Love the printed papers you used and your CAS design.

  6. Those Designer Papers are Fall-o-licious! Topped with your die cut sentiment makes this the perfect card!

  7. Lovely card, Darlene! The white sentiment really pops on the background collage of fall words and colors. Great die cut sets too.

  8. Those are great papers to create such a pretty fall card, represents the Octoberfest perfectly!!

  9. You always make me want to play with paper! I feel like I've been neglecting it lately. These papers work together beautifully and I must say I do love the two die sets you used. They look like they were made for each other. Beautiful fall card, Darlene!

  10. Hi Dar, thanks for stopping by last week! Good to see you’re still creating up a storm. I’ve been getting my EF challenge fix at Let’s Squash It for a couple of years, if I have extra capacity I’ll check out Can You Handle the Pressure and if I remember I’ll link up some autumn stuff to Four Seasons later this month! I’m not creating as much as I once did but still having fun with it. I do miss both CHF and Crafty Secrets though!

  11. Your blog post background and your card match perfectly. The colors are shouting Fall and make me want to do more leaves and fall colors. This season is my favorite.

  12. pretty pumpkin paper, like how you put the sentiment over the word paper

  13. Dar, as always, you put the most endearing scenes together! Your collage of all-things-autumn brings out the scents of the season, with the sounds and smiles of family and friends. It's a brilliant creation! hugs, de

  14. Well isn't this card just perfect for the challenge? I love your patterned papers, sometimes that's all you need to make a fabulous card. Great work here, you clever lady!!!

  15. So pretty. Beautiful pattern paper with those warm colours of Fall.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me some love!
