Happy World Card Making Day! - 6 pm EDT - Alice





Happy World  Card Making Day!

Since I love geography, we'll be seeing the Challenge Team throughout the day based on their location in the United States from east to west! Say hello to Alice Wertz who lives furthest west in the greater San Francisco area.

This is the eighth 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 a look at Alice's card!

Merry Little Santa Card by Alice Wertz featuring the Birdie Brown Jingle All the Way stamp set, Gift Tag Greetings stamp set, and Tag Builder Blueprints 4 Die-namics #mftstamps #wcmd2015
Let's see what Alice has to say about her card:

"Since I rarely use tags, I wanted to see if I could use the elements from the new Tag Builder Blueprints 4  Die-namics on a card. It turns out that the smaller shapes that are supposed to create the windows for the shaker tags are perfect for a fun layout!" 

And Alice is so right. Your dies can do so many things; you just have to stretch your imagination!

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 eighth prize of the day — one randomly selected winner will be chosen from the comments on this post to win the prize pictured below:

6 pm prize 

Cozy Greetings stamp set and Comfy Sweater 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.
