World Card Making Day!


Hello and happy world card making day! It's been pretty busy around our house with a new little boy babe these past couple weeks so I probably won't have a chance to craft along with you all today but I do have a card to share and some good stuff to give away too so keep reading!



This is a card I made one night after reading the kids In the Night Kitchen by Maurice Sendak before bed. After they finished giggling about the naked boy in the story and settled in, I snuck off and put together this card inspired by the image on the very last page. It kind of has a 70's vibe, do you think? My great grandma used to have a bunch of these odd sized cards with funky images on the front from that era. Plus the sun rays kind of look like an afro :)

Okay so onto the giveaway, but first to support a couple company's that I love....


Post your cards onto the Paper Issues FB page for a chance to win one of 4 $20 gift certificates to the Paper Shop! Woot Cassie!!


Pink by Design is also doing a challenge to celebrate the day for cards other than your typical A2 size. Stop by the blog to link up your square, easel and gatefold cards.


And I am giving away this half pint set called What's Your Number - super cute right?! Also a box full of card-making goodies from my stash - didn't have a chance to take a pic so it'll just have to be a surprise :) A mystery box!!

If you would like to be entered to win, please leave a comment below about anything you'd like, and if you are not already a follower of this blog, then please become one! I'll keep entries open through Monday night.

Have a wonderful day of card crafting!!
