World Cardmaking Day 2012


Happy World Card Making Day! Today I'm sharing holiday cards that I made with
 Purple Onion Design's noteblock stamps--and I have a giveaway, too!


The noteblock stamps make for quick cards. For both cards, I white embossed and 
ink distressed in a variety of distress ink colors. 






I added some paper punched leaves for the Thanksgiving card 




and some bats to finish off the Halloween card.

Michele has graciously allowed me to giveaway a Halloween noteblock to one of my blog followers.

If you would like a chance to win the noteblock stamp, simply leave me a comment on this post from now until October 9th and I'll draw and announce a random winner on October 10th.

I'll add some extra goodies, too.








Also, for you Stacey Yacula fans, her holiday stamps will be available soon! The design team got a sneaky peek and all I can say is that they are over the top A-DORABLE! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and celebrating World Card Making Day!

  15. Hi Donna, happy WCMD! I though I posted a comment before (I did it from my phone on the side of a soccer field...maybe that didn't quite work out!). Anyway, what i said before was that I LOVE the colors you distressed and the dry embossed card base...so perfect! Thanks for sharing your amazing talents with us...you inspire me!
