World Cardmaking Day is right around the corner on Saturday, October 3rd! What is World Cardmaking Day, you ask? Oh my! It's where all the cardmakers in the whole world get together and make cards. Not only do we make cards, but we follow a schedule of fun challenges. You can even win prizes. Way cool prizes! The challenges are put on by various stamp companies and suppliers. Each hour, there will be a post telling you where to go and that post will tell you what the challenge is. That post will tell you how long you have to complete the challenge and where to post your entry. It's going to be great fun. Check out the prize package offered by the Paper Garden Projects Store. Yowza! All the groups will be updating their links closer to the date and time of the challenge. Each challenge will tell you how long you have to complete the challenge and when the prizes will be awarded.

I've been cleaning the craft room today. All day. And I'm still not done, but I decided to take a break and put a few cards together. I made a pile of already colored images and am making cards from those images today. This is an image from Bombshell Stamps. I love this image and I don't usually like western-type stamps. Not only is this image fun to color, but it's easy to cut out, too. I used other Bombshell images for the corners of the card. I stamped the images on black cardstock and stamped with Versamark ink. Then I embossed with Cherry red and cherry scented embossing powder. Sexy, eh? I colored this image with Copics, but I colored it so long ago that I don't know which pens I used. I love Copics almost as much as Prismacolor pencils.
