Card Making Day and Saturday Shout Out

                   
             Happy World Card Making Day!



Isnt't this a perfect card for the occassion?   Deena made this.  I am sure if you pop by her blog this weekend you will see that and no tellings what else she will be creating!

I hope you get to spend some time crafting no matter where you are!  The day sorta snuck up on me, for some reason I had it my head it was  a couple of weeks away!
I know there are several online and probably local stores having sales! I am trying to resist.  I  am setting some a couple of goals  for myself this weekend:

1. Finish all my swaps ( I have two sets of cards to make) and one set of card kits to  make plus three other kits for swaps I am in.

and

2.  Participate in  two other challenges!

How about you?  Do you have any  crafting goals or plans?  If so, comment and tell us what you are doing this weekend!  I will draw one random comment to win a $10 US gift certificate to an online store of your choice!  I will take comments thru Midnight Sunday CST with winner to be announced on Tuesday with the next challenge.

And, our Saturday Shout Out this week- for the No Coloring Challenge-Our Top Three  in no particular order:  (yeah I know there are four...four is good!)

Gorgeous creations each of you!  Be sure to snag the Top 3 badge from the sidebar for your blog!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to join our current challenge- Black and White Plus One!

World Card Making Day snuck up on me too. I was going to grade some papers, but I think I'm going to make some cards for OWH instead.

I'm getting a box of cards together to send to OWH and then I'll be working on some mixed-media projects for a craft fair. If I have time I'd like to squeeze in a card challenge or two but it's unlikely due to family obligations.

I'm hoping to get at least one card finished today along with 12 birthday party invitations. I also need to make thank you cards, water bottle labels, party hats and food labels. Plus some food shopping, clothes shopping and going to the zoo.

I have several swaps to work on but not coming up with anything yet I like to submit. That will be on he top today. Then I plan to do (hopefully) a challenge or two. Should be thinking about making Halloween cards.

I had no idea it was World Cardmaking Day! I'm so happy I had planned to spend the day in my craft room. I suppose my first goal this weekend is to actually get there! LOL. I've struggled with motivation lately, so it will be really important if I follow through. Once there, I have a set of birthday cards to make, so I'm hoping to make five of those, including a couple of challenges. Oh yeah, and update my blog. It's been sorely neglected!! - Heather B

world card making day, what a great idea. I'm just heading to my craft table to make some card place settings for Thanksgiving next week. I'm having the family and several friends over and am anxious to make some turkey place cards for this festive occasion.gobble gobble.....

I'd like to finish a card I was working on, make a Halloween card or two and maybe a starter for my Christmas cards.

Lorraine said...

Oh Wow! Thank you so much for picking me for your top 3. I'm really chuffed. Thanks again, and I hope you had a Happy Cardmaking Day too.

I have an hour and a half left to get on the card train with the rest of the world- guess I should do that LOL

I'm making winged keys for our Harry Potter mobile/display/recent obsession this weekend. ;)

it totally snuck up on me too. However I ended up making a total of 8 cards & an envelope, so I think I've done all right. 7 cards are for a card exchange and the 8th & the envelope are for a wedding we're at next weekend (and the card qualifies for this week's challenge to boot. WOO!)

Stacie (craft-princess) said...

My goal is to get my DT project done! :)

Linda Palmer said...

My goal for this weekend is to finish 2 kits for swaps and have ready to mail tomorrow. I've got one almost finished and thought I needed a computer break so I read this page and thought I would enter.

Oh, I'm thrilled to be chosen in the top 3 this week...thanks so much! Glad you liked my card.
