World Card Making Day 2012 & A Giveaway

Hi Everyone!
Happy World Card Making Day!  Today is the 7th annual World Card Making Day and I managed to spend most of the afternoon in the craft room creating cards to celebrate.  I’m also participating in the Blog Tour which is full of some amazing inspiration.  If you would like to join in the fun, check it out.

This is such a fun day to get creative so I decided to get an early start on my holiday cards.  I created this CAS style Christmas card which is great because it can be mass produced simply and very quickly.

I just stamped my wreath and sentiment onto some water-colour cardstock and embellished the wreath with some red and amber coloured adhesive rhinestones.  So simple and fast!

To help celebrate World Card Making day I have a little giveaway for one lucky blog reader.

Just leave a comment on this post by 11.59pm AWST time on Friday 12 October 2012, and I will randomly select one winner to take home the Lattice Background cling stamp by Hero Arts & Studio Calico as well as a 6 x 6″ Amy Tangerine Sketchbook paper pad by American Crafts.  International entries are welcome.  I will then announce the lucky winner here on my blog on Saturday, 13 October 2012.

Well I hope you all have a wonderful and productive World Card Making Day!
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
