Happy National Card Making Day!

by - Sunday, October 08, 2006

Betcha didn't even know that it was today eh? This is a different sort of holiday - not one created by the greeting card world to get you to buy cards, but rather by the scrapbooking/papercrafting/stamping industry to get you to buy stuff to MAKE the cards. So - this is a 'holiday' in which you actually have to work!

Here are a couple of cards that I managed to pump out tonight even in the midst of my Dayquil induced cold "coma"... after loading these up I am dipping into the Nyquil for a great nights' sleep! These are very traditional colors, but not traditional holiday stamps - both are just regular flower stamps made Christmassy!

Stamps by Stampin' Up!, Inkadinkado and Paper Inspirations. Ink from Color Box and Stampin' Up. Ribbon, paper and embossing powder - source unknown.

Oh - and Happy Turkey Day weekend fellow Canadians! I will be cooking myself a bird on Monday - then it will be turkey sandwiches for like six weeks unless I can get someone over to help me eat the bird!
