World Card Making Day


The day has arrived!  And I want to be crafty today as long as the time allows! I've never really "celebrated" this day, I guess because I craft when I have the desire, no matter what day.  But it's kind of a nice feeling to know that today, all around the world, many people are making cards, either for personal use or for a good cause.  So it feels like I am part of something bigger, and that's a nice feeling!

I may post more than once today as I would like to participate in some challenges that are being thrown out there (of course, if time allows).  So for my first card, this is a card for a Flickr friend out there, she has no idea this is coming, and I hope that it will be a pleasant surprise!

Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah; patterned paper (unknown)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers
Stamps: Fauna & Flora (WPlus9); PTI Tiny Tags
Other: scalloped punch (Stampin 'Up); twine (PTI); tag (from a friend); eyelet (unknown)

I have been wanting to colour this image for the longest time, and I really enjoyed it.  I hope my friend will to.

I am not going to write long stories today as I want to go and make some more cards!  Have a fun day crafting if that is what you are doing, and if not, still, have FUN!  It's a beautiful day here in Houston Texas!  I've done my 12 mile run this morning, it felt like heaven! Now I am ready to tackle the day!
