Sketchfest Tuesday and World Cardmaking Day

The Tuesday sketch for Sketchfest is up at the Caardvarks blog, and I wanted to share the card I made. I used July's Documentary kit for this one. I love those little pins from Making Memories!

Speaking of cards, you may have heard a few rumblings around the web, but I wanted to direct you to a fun event happening the first Saturday in October. It'll be World Cardmaking Day! What a perfect opportunity to get a head start on holiday cards and other card related tasks you may have been dreading and avoiding.


In honor of the big day, Paper Crafts Magazine is extending a discount to each of you! You can get 25% off your entire purchase subtotal at the Paper Crafts/CK online store -- just by enter the following code: NB84-TKMS-TAUJ. The coupon will be valid from midnight (MDT) on 09/21/09 through 23:59:59 (MDT) on 10/12/09. Be sure to check out the World Card Making Day website for all sorts of activities and you can even check out the Blog Tour. Some of my favorite card makers and crafters in general are listed there. So honored to be part of it.

And not because I'm partial or anything, but if you are looking for Christmas ideas I would absolutely jet over to the store for a copy of this:

Holiday Cards & More, Vol. 4

I am really excited to have a couple of things in this issue, but honestly, in general I have never been so inspired by a magazine for holiday projects. So if you are looking for decor ideas, or gifts to give, and even ideas for those pesky Christmas cards, this is a really great issue to pick up. Here's one of my projects:

(Some of you might remember this from Studio Calico.)

You can check out this issue here.

Enjoy your Tuesday! The girls both have school today, and then it's off to soccer practice this evening. A busy day at my house!
