World Card Making Day

Today is World Card Making Day.  What is that?  It's a holiday for card makers around the world to celebrate the creativity of handmade cards and the personal connection that they create between friends and family.  You see, this wonderful, creative, feel-good hobby of card making is something enjoyed on a world-wide scale!  There are card makers, just like you, in many countries all over the world!  World Card Making Day is celebrated the first Saturday in October and endeavors to bring together card makers around the world at a time that is traditionally the busiest time of year for card- and gift-making.

Since this is World Card Making Day, I thought it would be extra special to make cards that will be sent to other parts of the world.  I have some contacts that gather cards to be sent to our troops serving overseas.  Those brave men and women have no access to shops with cards to send their loved ones back home.  When they want to send birthday cards, just because cards, Christmas cards, and more, they have very few, if any, options.  That's where we come in!  The cards we make today (I'm donating all the supplies) will be shipped out to our troops serving afar.  Our troops will then be able to send their own Christmas wishes to their loved ones back home.  How cool is that?  If you would like to take part in this World Card Making Day celebration, pop by my Studio today.  It's come and go, from noon till 8 p.m.-no RSVP required.  Full details are just below.  Scroll down two posts.  See you later!
