Happy World Cardmaking Day!

(Project 12 September in October will be posted later today)

Happy WCMD!  Whether you paper craft or not, I hope you get a chance today or this weekend to do that creative thing that makes your heart go pitter pat.

I have sweet friends who knit and crochet (oooohhh how I envy their talents), quilt, bake, hike, bike, and even hunt (that's for you, Steve, lol), and I hope today is a day you get to do what you love.

I worked on a quilt last night for my girls.  I'm making two for Christmas and have been working on it for far too long.  Today we'll be headed to Joann's for supplies to create Halloween costumes, so while it isn't cardmaking today, it's still crafts, and I love it.

If you are making cards today, SCT has a great sketch from Becky Fleck with several interpretations, as well as a fun card kit giveaway from Jillibean Soup.  check that out here. 

I created a card for this challenge, using the new Autumn Press line from Studio Calico:

I used the last I had of that brown striped ribbon.  I must get more because I think it's my favorite trim to date.  I can't remember who makes it though, or where I got it.  I'll have to add that to the search list for Joann's.

In case you are interested, supplies used:
