Happy World Card Making Day!

Hi all... hope you are having a crafty day! Mine will be filled with soccer and an anniversary dinner... Brian & I are celebrating 11 years of marriage today... wow! I can't believe that we've passed 10 and are officially on our way to 20... yeah!! I'm so lucky to have found him and have him in my life every single day.

Since I'll be out tonight, I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning last night to celebrate World Card Making Day and get a start on my holiday cards. Here are a few designs that I've come up with...

I'm not usually one to follow trends, but my girls LOVE purple and there is a ton of cute purple holiday product on the market this season... so I've decided to go with it. Are any of you adding purple to your holiday palette this year? Any thoughts about which design I should go with?

And since its a special day I've got a little give-a-way... if you are interested in winning some new card making supplies just leave a comment by 12am EST on Monday, October 4. **CONTEST NOW CLOSED**

I love the Happy Holidays card. I love how you used yellow for this card -- it provides an unexpected splash of colour for a holiday card!

it would be hard to choose - I think you need to make all three - that way you won't get bored.

Purple - pop over to my blog - purple and penguins - another post on Monday - same color same theme.
