World Card Making Day is Tomorrow!

I'm a little bit late on this, considering that the event is tomorrow, but did you know that Saturday is

World Card Making Day


World Card Making Day happens the First of October of every year to celebrate card making, the friendships and bonds that are created while making cards, and to also get a headstart on the Christmas holiday season.

As some of you know, I recently just moved from metro Detroit, Michigan to Knoxville, Tennessee.  It has already been quite a fun adventure (sorry, I'm a slacker and didn't take many pictures.  Bad blogger.  Bad!)  But I wanted to get back in the groove to crafty crap and other scheduled programming!
I have my Craft Room set up now, and I'm happy because it's even better and more organized than it was before. 

Once the room was set up, I had to just create, to get the mojo goin' (even if they're not necessarily my favorite cards).

The paper, circle punches, and colorful brads came together when I used this "Happy Everything" stamp.  Not one of my classiest, but fun and cute.

I sold a card that had this sentiment stamped onto it to my neighbor at my old aparment, so I thought I should have another one in my repertoire. 

This came from another jar of Martha Stewart Microbeads, a lite lavender color called Kunzite.  It's very tone on tone but easier to see in person.

I love the colors on this one, so bright!  The butterfly was done using my Pazzles, although I don't think I set the blade deep enough because several of the holes I had to punch out myself.  I will try it again with another setting.

This was just a mishmash of gems, paper colors, and embellishments.
Join me and thousands of crafters around the world tomorrow in making cards for World Card Making Day.  I will put up a bonus post with some cards I make tomorrow.  Sunday starts the card hop I'm in so come back also on Monday to check out what I've got.  Also, there's a contest for World Card Making Day, and you've got til October 11 to get your pieces in!  See below for the rules:
