Happy World Card Making Day! - 2 pm EDT - October Guest Designer





Happy World  Card Making Day!

I'm excited to welcome our October Guest Designer Jocelyn Olson to our little party today!  Jocelyn lives in South Dakota. You'll get the chance to learn more about her this coming Wednesday when she joins us for our very first Sketch Challenge in October.

This is the sixth of nine posts on this blog today (every two hours from 4 am EDT to 8 pm EDT) where the MFT Challenge & Inspiration Team and our October Guest Designer will share Christmas and holiday cards and tips. 

On each post, we'll be offering AWESOME prizes including My Favorite Things holiday favorites from the past as well as brand spanking new products from the October release that won't be available until next Tuesday. Yep, this is your chance for a sneak peek! Details for how you can get your to chance to win can be found later on in this post.

Here's some serious cuteness from Jocelyn!

Magic Sweaters Card by Jocelyn Olson WInter Wonderland stamp set and the Comfy Sweater and Blueprints 13 Die-namics #mftstamps #wcmd2015
I love how Jocelyn paired brand new stamps from the October release with the old favorite Comfy Sweater Die-namics. Sometimes I think we are too eager to just use the new, but Jocelyn's design reminds us to pull out last's years products and give them a new look!

While we are over here celebrating World Card Making Day, the My Favorite Things October release is hitting the Internet with full force at the My Favorite Things blog. Make sure to visit yesterday's post HERE and today's post HERE to see new products and the awesome projects created by the amazing My Favorite Things Design Team!


So here's the sixth prize of the day — one randomly selected winner will be chosen from the comments on this post to win the prize pictured below:

2 pm prize 

*not yet released* Trim the Tree stamp set and Die-namics 

 


You have until Monday, October 5 at noon EDT to leave your comment. All winners will be announced here on our Tuesday, October 6th, You've Been Spotted post.

We can't wait to see what you're creating so be sure to use #mftstamps and #WCMD2015 when posting your cards on Instagram and feel free to post in our My Favorite Things Facebook group or MFT Challenge & Inspiration Facebook group.




Happy World Card Making Day from My Favorite Things! See you at 4 pm EDT!
