World Card Making Day Challenge for YOU!

It's here, it's here, today is a special day, when we celebrate WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!!!  So, I told Michael last night that we have this special day today and he proceeded to tell me that in our house it's ALWAYS a card making day and you know what?  He IS right.  I really do make cards almost every day..crazy as it sounds, but I do.  AND I LOVE every moment of those card making times!  How about you?  How often do you craft? Is it enough for you, or do you wish you could do more?

Well, today you will have a chance to create for many challenges.  I know a lot of companies have their challenges and at Unity/Ippity we decided to have our individual challenges per designers.  So, if you visit my blog often, you already know how much I LOVE SHAPED cards...so guess what I am challenging you with????  Here is my challenge for you!

MAKE A SHAPED CARD
(anything other than square or rectangle card)

So, are you ready to take that challenge???  If you are.....here is what to do.  You have until Midnight of October 16th (isn't that generous???), to make a shaped card and upload the link to it on the thread on Splitcoaststampers.  Here is the CODE you need to add to your card when you upload to the Splitcoaststampers gallery for my challenge

USCWCMD18
Don't forget to add that, otherwise I won't know you are participating.

Now, it wouldn't be right to have a challenge without a prize, right??  If you participate in my challenge, a random winner will be chosen and announced on 10/21 at the Unity Forum and my winner will get the amazing DOTS FOR SURE Ippity stamp.  I love this stamp, as you can use it with anything, so hope you like it, too and play along in my challenge.



Oh...and Unity is also offering one winner a GRAND PRIZE and here is what you have to do.  If you play in all the Unity/Ippity challenges (can't combine the challenges) one WINNER will get THE UNITY KOM for a WHOLE YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Can you believe that???  When I heard about that prize, I said, I would love to play along in that challenge...LOL. Talk about an amazing prize!

So, I hope you play.  Anyway, all this talk and here is my card I made for my challenge and sure hope you like it.  Since Halloween is coming up, I decided to make a Halloween House shaped card with the help of my trusty and very much loved Silhouette machine.  On my project I used Luminarte's Twinkling H2O's to paint my images in and also the windows and door of the house.  It's so pretty and sparkly...I also used Ranger's white Liquid Pearls to outline the house and windows and doors..


And here is the detail of the pumpkins coloring


So, that is it for my looong post for today.  Hope you have a fun day and hope you are doing something crafty.  I plan on making something, just don't know what yet, but there are so many amazing challenges, I know I will have fun finding some to play along with.

Make sure you check out all my Unity/Ippity Design Team mates challenges!  You can find the links to them on the Unity blog and also the individual threads on the Unity Challenge Forum!

Have a FABULOUS day and can't wait to see what you will make!

Hugs,
