World Card Making Day
World Card Making Day is just around the corner and I could not be more E-X-C-I-T-E-D!!! On Saturday October 3, 2009 card makers worldwide will be celebrating this event together. This will be my third year participating in a World Card Making Day event.
I love the idea that there is a common thread between us all and that we can celebrate this magnificent art called paper crafting. Are you attending a local event? virtual event? I plan to stop by my local store and purchase some new stamps and supplies and then attend a virtual event with my stamping friends! Make sure to stop by my blog on October 3rd and take a peak at what I am crafting...
If you are not sure where to start or maybe this is your first WCMD make sure to drop by the WCMD website where you can get a lot of ideas on how to celebrate!!!
HOW ABOUT A CONTEST? Once you have created some cards make sure to upload them to the WCMD gallery to share in the worldwide celebration and become eligible to win a prize on both the Paper Crafts Connection blog and the Moxie Fab World blog (Prize winners will be announced on Tuesday, October 6).
WANT TO GET PUBLISHED? Make sure you enter the WCMD contest so that you have a chance to be published in the March/April 2010 issue of Paper Crafts magazine. Isn't that a great opportunity? If you have never been published before THIS IS YOUR CHANCE!!! Make sure you cards fit one of the following categories: Birthday, Christmas/season’s greetings, hello/thinking of you, love, and thank you.
NEED INSPIRATION? Make sure to visit the WCMD Blog Tour not only will you be able to see 25 more cards made specifically for WCMD, but you can also get a coupon code for 25% off your entire purchase on our online store. I personally know many of the girls on the blog tour and must say they are some of the VERY best in the industry!!!
