World Card Making Day is Big Big Stuff!

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice (gotta go with the fave for this big day!)

wow! how do I contain all of this big excitement?! it is World Card Making Day folks!!! aren't you just bubbling over with the thrills!??! I have soooooooooooooo many things to show you today, so hold on to your coffee cups......

to start, we have a new challenge starting up over at Through the Craft Room Door. this is such a GREAT group of people, folks! the challenge is to create a project to honor Breast Cancer Awareness in pink, with pearls and bling. be sure it's a fun shape!

my project is actually chipboard that was covered with great papers from the Authentique Uncommon collection. the wonderful ribbon & rose image is from The Stamping Boutique. there is soooooooo much glitter pen, glimmer mist, and stickles all over this baby, you wouldn't believe the sparkly shine! my pearly contribution is the pearlized buttons. something a bit different, but still fun! the pretty little roses were also covered in stickles for more shine. the senti comes from Create with TLC. I am also sharing this for my Pink Saturday contritbution. you know how much I love my pink! ;)

Next, I want to announce that I am now a part of the Create with TLC Design Team!!!! I have long been a fan of Paulette's vintage images and fabby sentis. so this is a real treat for me! you will see LOTS of her sentis this weekend! ;)

This card uses a fun image from her November fall image club, 'Pumpkin Time'. Papers are Echo Park Apothecary Emporium. these are perfect for Halloween! I added a touch of distress stickles to the pumpkin after paper piecing the pumpkin. the gorgeous flower is Prima.

Lastly, Jellypark has a phenom fabby challenge going on just for this weekend! you are more than welcome to combine it with the current Design Seeds color palette challenge if you would like to double your chance of winning some fun images! Claire is giving everyone this amazing craft basket image to use on a WCMD card. link it back to the Jellypark blog by Sunday night for your chance to win a 10 pound gift certificate. just for fun, I am going to offer someone who leaves a comment here on my blog the chance to win 2 digis from Jellypark! you have only until Sunday night to leave your comment to be entered to win!

My card uses papers from the new My Mind's Eye A Beautiful Life collection. if you look closely, you will see that everything in this basket matches things on my craft table. I colored each item exactly like what I actually use! :) lots of little accents like flower soft, shimmerz paint, & stickles were added to the various items in the basket. senti from Create with TLC.

Hi Jen - First I want you to know that I have tried several times to leave comments but seem to have a problem with yours and few other blogs - I'm not sure of the reason. So, I hope this makes it through. I love to visit your beautiful creations are always an inspiration. Happy WCMD to you. Hugs, Dru
