October means….

Double D Challenge

The Double D Challenge is October what does it mean to you? October means celebrating our grandson Chase and his birthday. This year it’s his 10th..where does the time go even during this crazy year of Covid.

So for my October birthday card I pulled out a Sizzix birthday hat embossing folder, the sentiment is from the Pretty Pink Posh balloon shaker die but I cut out the sentiment from the balloon and inserted them into my cut out panel. The layering panel was one that I created awhile ago. Lego Harry Potter is an image from a free coloring page that was colored using my Stampin Up colored pencils and die cut the numbers from Momenta number dies. Thanks to Stamping Buddy Bonnie for a reminder to use our embossing folders and to Gerry for the awesome use of those free coloring pages.

Although Double D Challenges created a gorgeous mood board I decided to celebrate October in a different direction. I do love this time of year, the leaves changing colors but not the clean up, the brisk fresh air, pulling out scarves to wear and of course Halloween but celebrating our first grandchild’s birthday is the best thing about the month to me.

  1. What a cute card. I love the Harry Potter image. I agree with Golda – Chase is the best reason to celebrate October

  2. What a great card for your grandson’s ‘double digit’ birthday, he will love it. He is by far the best reason to celebrate October. The years do go by way too fast, our oldest grandchild also has an October birthday, she just celebrated # 34

  3. Super cute card! Love the Harry Potter image and all you used to create this masterpiece. I do not have grandchildren so do not relate to those who do, but can definitely enjoy children’s birthday cards.

    1. Thanks, Lisa, when Chase told me that he is going to be Harry Potter for Halloween I thought it would be fun to add to his birthday card too.

  4. Super cute take card. I can identify because I, too, have a grandson who has an October birthday. Great take on the challenge, thanks so much for playing along with us over at the Double D Challenge. Hope we see you back again soon!!

  5. I like that for you, a month is about family as much as about fall. You did a great job on this card and I’m sure Chase will love it. Your take on the challenge is just right.

    1. Thanks Johanna. Although I did follow the mood photos, Chase’s birthday is the most important event in October for us.
