Happy World Card making day...

Did you know the first Saturday of October is a time when card makers worldwide kick the holiday card making season into high gear. It's World Card Making Day! And this year, Flourishes is teaming up with other Splitcoast Member Companies to help inspire YOU! Better yet? If you get in on the action, you might just win some goodies courtesy of Flourishes. Click here for WCMD details from SCS.
Join us in our sketch challenge that kicked off tonight at 7 PM Eastern. You have until Midnight EST on Sunday to upload your cards. All of those that played will have their names thrown into a hat and three lucky people will win a goody bag courtesy of Flourishes with paper, a ribbon grab bag and a stamp set inside!
Here's an added bonus! We're partnering with Operation Write Home (formerly Cards for Heroes)to help spead the love around. If you'd like to send your challenge cards on to this fine cause that sends cards to our troops serving overseas, all you need to do is click on this link for details on how to send some cards their way! Now I would say that is a FABULOUS BONUS!
I used the set Rejoice for my card, added a little sparkle to the leaves (you can click the picture to see the sparkle) and some piercing to the swiss dots panel. Very simple and a cheap mailer come Christmas. hee hee Be sure to use the code WCMD09H on SCS so we can find your creations. The girls made some creations for you to check out:

Oooooo! So soft and gorgeous, Stacy! We were quite busy all weekend, so I didn't get a chance to play in WCMD (sniff), but I'm enjoying viewing all the wonderful creations of those who did!
