World Card Making Day!!!

Welcome to my blog on World Card Making day!!! Today is my favorite day!!!! Since I love to make cards, I am celebrating World Card Making Day. There are so many activities today all over, but I want to highlight a few that I plan on playing along with. Treasured Scrapbooking, Caardvarks and Splitcoaststampers! Make sure you check them out!

My first card is for Treasured Scrapbooking, where all the designers are having their own card challenges, so please come and check out our forum set up just for this special occasion. The first prize winner will win a Card kit!!!! How fun is that? You know how much I love the kits Leslie puts together! My challenge is to create a shaped card. Since the month of October is Breast Cancer awareness month, I have been creating with the colors pink, white and black my past few cards and I decided to make a lady's dress shape with those colors again. Well, here is my card. So, what do you think????
