Happy Friday everyone!

Are you aware that World Card Making Day is October 4th?

Here is a some info about this special day from the website devoted to it (and sponsored by Paper Crafts:

WHAT

World Card Making Day is a holiday especially for card makers around the world to:

  • Celebrate the creativity of handmade cards and the personal connection that they create between friends and family
  • Kick off (and get a head start on) the holiday card-making season
  • WHEN

    The first Saturday of each October, kicking off the holiday card-making season, the most popular time for creating and sharing handmade greetings.

    WHO

    The card-making community worldwide, including hobbyists, beginning card makers, manufacturers of card-making products, retail sellers of products, educators, and press are invited to come together to celebrate this holiday and creative passion.

    WHY

    It is a day to connect with fellow card makers both near and far, to applaud the creativity that powers the craft, and to provide an opportunity for card makers to connect and find resources that will empower, inspire, and encourage them in their card making.

    And now for the “HOW”:


    Scrap Shotz is hosting a World Card Making Day Mini Crop!  There will be card challenges galore, both seasonal and non-seasonal  There will be prizes and the unveiling of a seasonal card kit (or two)! 😉  Please mark it on your calendars and then come on by!
    ——————————————–
    Speaking of Paper Crafts, I am excited to share that they have selected one of my cards to be published in their upcoming Stamp It! Cards, Volume 3 idea book! *TOOT*!  It will hit the stands in late February and I am tickled.  While I’ve had a couple of layouts published, this will be my first published card.
    Nothing scrappy to share at the moment, I’m hoping to be more productive this weekend.
    Have a fabulous Friday!  Cheers!

    Lastly, we kicked the whole thing off with our second ever Scrap Shotz Gives Back Challenge.  For everyone tht participated in the challenge Scrap Shotz is donating $5 to the Make A Wish Foundation, a very worthwhile cause!  For this challenge, Creative Planner Kathy challenged us all to create a LO or card somehow inspired by music, easy right??  Here’s mne:

    All in all, it was a Rockin’ Good Time!  We had a blast swaping you tube links and can’t wait to do it again!

    Next up, anyone interested in a card challenge?  After the crop, I was left with oodles of scraps so I posted a card challenge on Scrapshotz to help make use of all of those little bits.  I am drawing for a RAK on Sunday night for this one so you might want to check it out!

    You can find the challenge here: http://www.scrapshotz.com/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=19703

    Here are two that I whipped up in a half-hour yesterday (see how easy it is?) loosely based on a Pagemaps sketch:
