Happy World Card Making Day 2010!!!



Happy World Card Making Day 2010!!
What is World Card Making Day you ask?
The first Saturday of each October, kicking off the holiday card-making season, the most popular time for creating and sharing handmade greetings.
Join crafters world wide, to connect and celebrate this wonderful craft!

There are lots of challenges and websites giving away fabulous prizes today.
Here are a list/links of participating sites.
i{heart}papers has over 600 items on sale & over 250 new CHA items – all 10% off with your $30+ order (code: WCMD10). Free shipping for all US orders of $50+ and CAN orders of $150+

Most of these companies have Fan Pages on Facebook, so friend them, to know the latest contests!

One of my favorite gifts to give away is a homemade/handcrafted card set.  I try to make them fairly simple without a lot of embellishments, so they are easy to mail.  Most of the people I give the card sets to, don't really know to add on more postage for a "lump" aka, ribbon, bling, button etc...lol.  Here are a few cards that I made just for today.  They are the start of a card set.  I plan on putting a little bit of everything into the set.  It is nice to always have a card on hand, when something sneaks up on you, like a birthday or when someone needs a pick me up.  
I hope you all get inspired today, and maybe make a card or two.  Or find inspiration to start on your Holiday cards.
I truly love to make cards, it just makes me happy!
After my daughters Cross Country meet today, I plan on crafting away!!
