Happy World Card Making Day!

What a wonderful way to celebrate what we LOVE - making cards!!  I KNOW I am not alone - and I LOVE that!!

We have a few fun things planned for you today.

First


We love & support OWH  - what a wonderful cause!!  A portion of the sales of our Circle of Honor stamp set is donated to OWH every year...we LOVE our troops!

Visit the OWH base camp to see where else to hop to today.

I used OWH sketch 189 for my card design.  I stamped and colored my owl and used our Thanks die for my sentiment (it doesn't get any easier than that!)  I colored my images first and managed to find a great patterned paper to match :)  The owl, tree and leaves are from our Fanciful Fall stamp set.


Second

We have a giveaway for today...

This is what you are playing for...


All you need to do is leave a comment before midnight on Sunday, October 6th and I will post the winner on Monday, October 7.

Third

Here's another giveaway opportunity for you:

We are supporting our dear friends at the Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine blog with a WCD prize!  The prize has a retail value of $65.00, so you might want to take a peek.  Look for details at the SCT blog at 11:00am (EST)

Fourth

If you can believe it, we have another giveaway opportunity for you:

Scrapbook & Cards Today will mail their newest Fall Issue to one lucky winner.  You have the same deadline as our gift certificate giveaway.  I will post the winner on Monday, Oct. 7


I know there are lots of fun things planned all over the web today for WCD, so I hope you find some really fun ways to celebrate today!

Mother's Day is the second most popular holiday for 
gift-giving, following Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy World Card Making Day friends!
