happy world card making day...

today is world card making day. 5 years ago, i had no idea such a day even existed!!! can you believe that? look how far i've come!! now i've turned into a crafting/stamping/card making monster!!! with a blog to prove it!!

if you don't know what world card making day is, here's a little history: (taken from world card making day)
World Card Making Day began in 2006 as National Card Making Day. Founded by
Paper Crafts magazine in an effort to bring card makers together at the busiest
card-making season of the year, it was first held on October 7, 2006. The
initial celebration involved the Paper Crafts magazine audience only; however,
due to the positive response it received and the worldwide popularity of card
making, Paper Crafts recognized the need to expand, and the holiday transformed
into World Card Making Day.Now in its second year, World Card Making Day has
been expanded to include a dedicated web site; a wider, more inclusive level of
sponsorship; and a marketing campaign designed to get the word out at the
grassroots level. These steps were taken in hopes of uniting the card-making
community (hobbyists, retailers, manufacturers, and more) and celebrating the
connection and creativity that is at the heart of card making.


so, what does all this card making day business mean to you?? well, would a saturday be complete without a prize from shuggy?? heck no! (oh my...my utah heritage just popped out there for a minute...) so in lieu of saturday night shuggy snacks, there will be a world card making day contest!! i have a fantastic prize picked out for the winner. it is a set of unmounted rubber stamps from the wonderful creator of the stamp shack and owner of her own rubber stamp line, sherry, over at inkspirations. to see the set that is the prize, click here.

so what is it you need to do to win the fantastic prize?? well, if you are already participating in some sort of world card making day celebration, it will be easy. if you aren't participating, it will still be easy!! simply make a card with a holiday theme. it can be any fall/winter holiday, halloween, christmas, new year's, thanksgiving...what ever you would like. if you have a favorite card you have all ready made, that works too!! just post a comment with a link to your card so everyone can see your creation. also include your email so you can be contacted if you are the winner. i will have a judge review all the cards and select a winner. you will have until monday october 8 at 6pm mst to submit your card. you can submit as many cards as you like, the more you submit, the more chances you have to win!!!

so go get crafting and enjoy world card making day!!!
