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!!!

PARTICIPATING?
Anyone who is going to be doing something special on their own blog to celebrate World Card Making Day can add their blog URL to the WCMD website using the Mr. Linky widget by clicking here.

Here is a special card I made especially for you...called Enjoy the Ride (the ride to WCMD of course!)






Stamp Set(s): bicycle from Following My Heart August Kit of the Month by Unity Stamp Co., sentiment from Everyday Button Bits by PTI
Cardstock: Stampers Select White by PTI
Patterned Paper: Lemonade by Basic Grey, Mini Polka Dots by PTI
Ink: Dark Chocolate by PTI
Accents: Gems by Basic Grey
Tools: Scor-Pal
, Punch by Fiskars, Copic Markers

I just want to personally thank you for stopping by my blog today. I'd love to hear from you so please leave me a comment for your chance to win something special. Also, if you are starting from my blog today then I encourage you to visit Moxie Fab blog too so you can see one of my special projects as well as see the links to other bloggers from around Canada. Don't forget to leave them a comment to increase your chances to win (Limit: one comment per person per blog) . In fact make sure to check the Moxie Fab blog on Friday and Saturday as well :) You know Cath--she always has fun things planned!!!

Oddly enough, I have never done the WCMD thing! But I am excited to do something to celebrate it this year. For the past two years as one of my 4 Artistic Resolutions for the year I had "Make all cards for all the years' celebrations", and I have really enjoyed doing that. It time to mark that piece of joy in my life with creating cards for events this saturday!
