World Card Making Day

Last weekend on Sat. it was World Card Making Day so I joined the forum at Odd Bird Planet for some fun. Queen Kat Designs was also involved with the challenges. I really enjoyed all the challenges and I find that joining in with a group like this is so much fun. It's like you make new friends in a very short time because your all working toward the same goal. To meet the challenge, to share your work and lets face it, hopefully win some prizes. It is so exciting. I did win one of the challenges'. I got an e-mail this morning, i won for the gold and silver cards. One of my favorite challenge results was the first one here. It was to take a technique that is new to you and make a card. When I went to the gals blogspot who was sponsoring this challenge I followed a link or two and came to a site called PATSTAMPS and this technique. I can't wait to share this for my Technique Tues class. The background is done by embossing a piece of wax paper and then ironing it between two pieces of glossy paper and then using a brayer to apply desired colors over the top. It took a few trys but I finally got it worked out and I love the results. Come on over next Sat. for Christmas Card Making and I'll show you how to make this card. That would be Sat. the 11th, 11a.m. - 9p.m. and Sun. the 12th. 9 a.m.-5 p.m..
The second card here was my next favotite and was sponsored by Emi from Japan, the challenge was to make a card that was any shape other than the traditional square or rectangle. Mine has two cards in one. The small package on the front lower part of the card is a card all on its own. It is attached.
The third project here was to do a project using Fall colors. Well I made the Journal Cover and used things that I bought in the dollar section at Target. Now I need to finish the inside.
I like the way everything turned out and I made some new friends form Australia and Japan the East Coast and the West. It was a very productive day.

I did this first thing in the morning. I was up at 4:30 a.m. ( I don't know why) and when I got set up with coffee and checked e-mails and went to the forum to check things out this challenge was already up. It is for a spring like card because the gal that was hosting this challenge is from Australia.

Have a really good week.
