World Card Making Day 2013!

Coffee of the Day - Oatmeal Cookie Crumble

Welcome to my happy little blog today! :) so glad you could stop by!

I love love love World Card Making Day! there is just something about the idea of people all over the world making great cards all at the same time that they will share with the people they love. isn't that just the coolest?!

Be sure to sign up for my Pinktober blog candy while you are here. anyone can enter!

First card up uses images from Scribbles Designs. the cancer support ribbon is currently a freebie and is actually on the inside of the card, popped up on foam tape. the frame image is printed on the card front. card base is sprayed with 2 shades of pink glimmer mist and Mr. Huey's calico white mist. 'scribbles' on frame are highlighted with either fruit punch stickles or beeswax shimmerz paint.  edge of card is framed in doodles I added. ribbon is paper pieced with Basic Grey Green at Heart paper.

Next card is made with a fun Smoochie from The Stamping Boutique, and sentiment from Create with TLC. paper is Basic Grey Serendipity, ribbon is May Arts, memo note is from K & Co Smash, flower is WOC. buttons, washi tape, and rhinestones were also added. pink distress stickles and touches with a clear spica glitter gel pen were added to the main image. LOTS of sparkle on here!

Oh wow, I didn't even realize that the centre was cut out of the frame. How cool is that! You always come up with neat ideas. I'm going to be using this card as an example for when I do the frames post over on SD. I really like your second card as well. It is true when you think of how neat it is that so many people came together around the world to make gorgeous cards. Such a cool concept.
