Happy World Card Making Day! - 8 pm EDT - Susan





Happy World Card Making Day! 

We hope you've had a productive and absolutely delightful day making cards and connections with like-minded friends around the globe.

This is the last 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 have shared Christmas and holiday cards and tips. 

On each post, we've offered 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 the last card of the day to round out our celebration!

Cheers to the New Year Card by Susan R. Opel featuring the Hand Lettered Holiday stamp set and the Layered Champagne Glass and Blueprints 25 Die-namics #mftstamps #wcmd2015
I'm not sure how many people actually send cards to celebrate the new year, but I'd like to make a toast to doing just that! The brand new Hand Lettered Holiday stamp set includes a New Year's sentiment, and that got me excited to use the Layered Champagne Glass Die-namics for the first time. With a touch of gold foil and bold and festive colors (inspired by a dress I saw in Glamour magazine), I loved making this celebratory greeting. Let me be the first to wish you an amazing 2016!

While we've been 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.
