October 2010 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop


Festivus....the holiday for the rest of us!

This month's blog hop theme is winter holidays other than Christmas. I thought I'd keep it fun and lighthearted with a card to celebrate Festivus, which is December 23. It's also kind of a shout out to my husband Matt, who loves Seinfeld. :)


Part of Festivus is the "Airing of Grievances" - thus the couch.


Hope you have a great holiday season, no matter what holiday you celebrate!!!!

~Supplies~
Stamps: On My Couch (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Black Onyx (Versafine); Chamomile (PTI)
Paper: Vintage Cream, Aqua Mist, Berry Sorbet (PTI); The Thrift Shop patterned paper (October Afternoon)
Accessories: circle and scallop circle punches (Marvy); Ledger Alphabet Stickers (October Afternoon); Ocean Tides twill ribbon (PTI); corner rounder (EK Success)
