World Card Making Day - 2011

It's here in all it's glory...World Making Card Day! I made a quick trip to the farmers market this morning and everyone was carrying on like it was just any other Saturday. Facebook has been quiet about it, almost no status updates about people being in their craftrooms creating away. What gives? Well I'm happy all my crafting friends out there in blog land are just as excited as I am for this day. Join in the fun by visiting the GIANT blog hop hosted by Paper Crafts Magazine.

By joining in the hop I knew I'd force myself to sneak in a little time to craft. These kids are not leaving me much mojo but I churned out these two cards to share with you today. I used the same colors on both yellow, cream, and a bit of gray.

For this simple card I dipped into my chipboard stash from the Cosmo Cricket warehouse sale. I had fun doing the zig-zag stitches on the card and then lining up the needle of the machine with the stitch line. It's a very simple card but I like it. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

On this second card I just had to keep using that fabulous chevron paper from the Amy Tangerine line that came in last months Studio Calico main kit. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and the flower images are by Memory Box. I colored in the flowers with copic markers and added a touch of bling with some yellow stickles.

Thanks for indulging this tired Mom with a visit and helping me not feel so alone on this most important of holidays! Happy Happy WCMD to you!

Glad you managed to get in some crafty time. :) How's your pooch adjusting to having two new family members?
Love that chipboard from Cosmo Cricket but I really love those flowers. Your colouring is gorgeous and the bling is the perfect touch!

Your cards are great. I just love what you did on the second one with the cut out circles. I think that today is exciting too being card making day.

Cosmo Cricket warehouse sale? Officially a little bit jealous now :) I love the pun, and the stitching on the first card, and the awesome little windows on the second. Fantastic layout, too :)
