Happy World Cardmaking Day!

scroll down to check updates...

so, today is the day. WCMD for short. I love any thing that celebrates cards and cardmakers. All the cards I make and post today will be sent to Debbi. She then takes time out to sort and mail what she receives from many different sources. If you make cards today...perhaps you might consider sending a few her way.

Now on to the fun...I will be posting throughout the day. Cards I make, techniques I love, my favorite inspirational websites, and a mini challenge or two. At the end of the day I will give away some of my fave card supplies to five individuals who leave a comment and a link to a card creation of their own.

...Off to finish my first batch...the next update will be in an hour...hope to see you then.

BTW...for more info, inspiration or to make sure I didn't just make this day up...go here:)

ok...I'm back...I guess I should have said an hour or TWO...well, here are my first two (had to get some unexpected work stuff out of the way). Next up will be my a mini challenge...check back later...


So a little bird told me that 1. not everyone who leaves a comment will want to link a card,2. some people prefer to email rather than comment and 3. you should really extend this over the weekend. Therefore...I shall comply with the little bird's wishes...since they make a lot of sense.

Update #2...

Well, I decided to just try and make as many cards as I could today. So I gave myself a project...how many cards could I complete with just one piece of 12x12 paper? Let's just say more than I thought. I challenged myself to use just 1 sheet of paper (which happened to be from KI's holiday collection last year I think) I would begin with pre-folded cardstock and just go for it. Here's what I came up with...I kinda ran out of steam after these so I still have about 1/4 of the sheet left. I know, I work slow.

I also thought I'd share a pic of the stuff I planned to give away...this isn't even the half of it.

See you later and remember...I'm doing this all day tomorrow too!
