World Card Making Day


Wow, isn't it great that there's a World Card Making Day, a special day just for those of us who enjoy creating cards?!?! I think it's fabulous and in honor of the occasion, Vera Wirianta Yates, a design team member of Digital Doodles stamps, has organized the 'Caring Hearts Card Drive' for the elderly at nursing facilities! The purpose of this drive is to share our cards with the residents in nursing homes who often times feel lonely during the holidays. Vera is such generous and kind hearted person who decided just this week to start this drive. So, there are still details to be worked out, but that means we can all pitch in and help by either sending cards or sponsoring prizes to make this a successful event! I'm pleased to announce that Digital Doodles stamps will participate and donate stamp sets as prizes for this drive! Please hop over to Vera's blog by clicking here to find out how you can join!

I'll be back later today to show off some cards I'm making today for this event. I  hope you can join in and have a great World Card Making Day! Kathy :)


As promised I'm back this afternoon to show you a Thanksgiving card I made today for the Caring Hearts Card Drive. I created this card with a new digital kit called 'Feels Like Fall' from Jen Martakis of Two Peas in a Bucket. Such a cool little kit full of autumn accents and a lot of coordinating patterned papers.


I can't get enough of the fun crinkled seam binding, buttons and Nestabilities die cuts as you can tell from all the projects I've posted lately! I made two cards yesterday that I can't show just yet that uses all the above! They are my go-to items these days!

Well, I plan to squeeze in another card today for the Caring Heart Card Drive. I hope you can join me, but if you can't, the drive will be open until mid November. Get all the details on Vera's blog posted above. :) Kathy
