Hooray! It's World Card Making Day!
I don't know about you, but I have pretty much set aside the entire day to putter around my craft room making cards, perusing #WCMD2015 and #mftstamps on Instagram, and broadcasting live via Periscope. It's so much fun to think that creative people all over the world are sitting around tables making cards. If only we had one big global table where we could all sit together. I'd wager a guess we wouldn't get a lot done!
This is the first 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 (you'll get to meet her at 2 pm!) 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.
So let's get to it! Here's the first card of the day made by yours truly!
This Fireplace Die-namics is so CUTE! It's part of the October release (not officially available until next Tuesday night!), and it is just full on adorbs! I'm all about non-traditional colors for Christmas, so my Limelight stockings make me awfully giddy.
If you are new to World Card Making Day, here's a little bit of detail about the holiday. The holiday began in 2006 as National Card Making Day as a way to bring card makers together at the beginning of the busiest card-making season of the year. Founded by Paper Crafts magazine, it was first held on October 7, 2006. The initial celebration involved only the audience of the magazine, but since then it has grown into a global celebration. It's a day for the card-making community—hobbyists, retailers, and manufacturers—to unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is the heart of card making and to kick start the holiday card making season!
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.
