It's World Cardmaking Day!!

Join in the fun with card makers the world over on Saturday, Oct. 4, as we kick off the holiday card-making season. Now in its third year, World Card Making Day is a day to connect with fellow card makers around the globe and to celebrate the creativity and joy of this craft! Hobbyists, beginning card makers, manufacturers of card-making products, retailers, and educators, are all making plans to share the excitement of World Card Making Day with workshops, online galleries, parties, contests, sales, and other special events.

Visit www.worldcardmakingday.com for ideas and unique ways to celebrate this holiday, including:

o Creating your own handmade cards from the dozens of sponsored ideas in the Inspiration Avenue section

o Sharing your unique designs with the world in the Creation Corner Gallery

o Finding and visiting an Official World Card Making Day Retailer for classes and activities that will help you connect with other fellow card makers

o Planning your own fun activities with friends and family with ideas from the Celebrate section

Join Paper Crafts magazine on this amazing day that brings card makers from all over the globe together in celebrating the joy of giving the gift of a handmade card.

Now for the really fun part! I'm super excited to get to be one of only 50 blogs "on tour"helping to kick off today's World Cardmaking Day!! To celebrate I have a copy of their Cards, Gifts and More: Papercrafting 3 Ways special publication to give away as blog candy today (let me know if you want yours signed by me and i won't charge anything extra--Just Kidding!)! Ohhh and it's a GOOD one!!! Just leave me a comment on this post and let me know what you are creating today! I will draw a random winner on Monday, Oct. 6th and announce the winner on Tuesday. Good Luck!!!

  2. Hi Susie!

    Oh, I love getting to see so many wonderful blogs from cardmakers! Your cards are adorable and I love your sprinkle of dots everywhere. I'm a dot-lover too! They just make me happy.

    I'm making cards for a few girlfriends tomorrow. I have plans to stamp and create all day! Woohoo!

  3. I hope to make a start on my Christmas cards today - a design I saw just after last Christmas season. I've collected the supplies so there is no excuse - except this blog hopping is distracting!
