World Card Making Day


Hello & Happy World Card Making Day! I hope you all are well & enjoying the big blog tour... if you are just hearing about it, you can find the list of blogger, card makers who will be celebrating with something special on their blogs HERE.

I'm keeping it simple today because frankly, the last week's activities on this blog have worn me out.  So I decided to share a favorite recent creation...
Simple... elegant & easy! I'd give you directions, but you've probably already figured them out;) I hope this does give you some inspiration though. My motto is beautiful and elegant doesn't have to be hard.

Now don't forget to stop by the World Card Making Day website to join in on the festivities that are happening there.

So how are you spending the day? Leave me a comment & I'll select a winner to receive a big surprise box of paper crafting making goodies!

Beautiful card! I'll be spending most of the day organizing my scrapboom. We've moved into this house 2 months ago and my room is still not quite set up as i'd like it to be so today is the day! Right after, i'm starting work (if you can call it work!) on 2 cards that need to be done by Monday... I can't wait to start creating!

Thanks for sharing your elegant but simple card with us. I am at home surfing the web to see what others are doing for WCMD and maybe later create some of my own cards with the ideas I've seen today.

This card is gorgeous Windy! I am all for simple elegance :) Today I spent the day canning salsa and tomatoes - not the way I wanted to spend WCMD but hoping to get some crafting in tomorrow.

Beautiful card. Love the paper! I made my first Christmas card of 2011 on Saturday. Then went out for a delicious dinner. What could be better?

Ange said...

I had a busy day including watching my daughter play volleyball and shopping with the WHOLE family. So no card making for me. But I LOVE your design!!

Michelle M said...

I love the Mr. & Mrs. card. So different - and so elegant. What else would I be doing on World Card Making Day besides sitting here in my "studio" making cards! Christmas, Girlfriend, you name it.
Thanks for sharing.

I love your style and always have!! I spent my day designing my Holiday Card for mass production. I actually even got my card base & patterned paper cut. So now I'm ready for the sentiment!! It feels good to be at this stage!!!
