World Card Making Day

Today is World Card Making Day which is celebrated around the world on the first Saturday of October. It is a holiday especially for card makers around the world to celebrate the creativity of handmade cards and the personal connection that they create between friends and family, and to kick off (and get a head start on) the holiday card-making season.

2 Sketches 4 You is teaming up with Scrapbook News & Review on this day. Kazan and Laura have created two special sketches for them which they are using for World Card Making Day. Go check out the 2 Sketches 4 You blog to find about how to participate. There are some great prizes to win.

The 2 Sketches 4 You DT as well as the Scrapbook News & Review designers made cards following either Kazan or Laura's sketch. I had the pleasure to work with Kazan's sketch.

Here's Kazan's sketch.....



And here's my take on her sketch.....



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper: Scenic Route Surprise Chipboard: Maya Road Cupcakes Set Buttons: Rusty Pickle Tools: Martha Stewart ZigZag punch, sewing machine Other: ribbon, white tag, paint and pin

And this is Laura's sketch.....



Go check out 2 Sketches 4 You to see all the gorgeous cards made by the talented team.

This evening I will be hosting an online crop on the Dolls & Decorations forum. Here's is a sneak of the cards I made for the crop.



Happy World Card Making Day to you all!!!

Geweldig kaartje Ingrid en veel plezier met je online crop. Kon helaas niet meedoen had al met het sa-forum meegedaan en dan ook nog 's avonds dat ging niet lukken.
Ga wel even neuzen straks.
