Happy World Card Making Day - Card 1

My studio is a MESS....but I am having a ton of fun. I've pulled together some projects that I hope you will enjoy and find some inspiration for your own card making.

Let's get right to the first one.

I fell in LOVE with these mustaches...and bought them - with not ONE thought of what I was going to do with them....sometimes you just have to do that....get the thing that speaks to you and figure out what to do later...especially when the "thing" was just $1.99.

I now have a fun little 4.25 x 4.25 masculine card that I can use for a surprise note to my honey! Well...and since I made a second one to show you the process....I will have to come up with someone to send it to!

Here is the first video... be sure and watch to find out how you can be eligible for my WCMD Giveaway.  Just a little added fun!

Thought you might want to see that little alpha die up is by Die-Versions and I got it here. They may be out of stock - but just add it to your "wish list" and Simon Says Stamp will alert you when they are back in stock.  This one just stays out on my desk...and I run it through a couple of times every time I use it and put the extra letters in a clear bag so I have them ready to go.

Oh and a couple more links.  I told you about my friend Tracie who always inspires me with her cards - you can find her blog, My Happy Life here. She is always creating her own sentiments for her cards and preprints them on the card base before she starts!  Super creative gal...I know you will love seeing her cards.

And you probably want to check out the YouTube channel of friend who made this card for me. You can find her here!  Ok...I am off to play with that little squirrel stamp....hmmmm what shall I do? Decisions, decisions!

    Jann I have a couple of your posts to catch up with - life suddenly got hectic here and we have, finally, acepted an offer for our house so soon my crafty stash will be packed away :(
    Just love that alpha die and your cute cards with the snosh (as grandson calls moustaches:)). Off to watch your video now. Oh yes, gorgeous autumn (fall) card from your friend. As for printing sentiments onto the card base first - I dare not as I'm sure to mess it all up!! LOL

    What a cute, c-u-t-e, card! I love your pun.

    That fall card you received from your friend is beautiful. Happy Mail for sure :D

    Indeed, my friend, you have become a "Card Maker" and it is exciting to see each of your creations. The video was fun to watch, and quite informative.

    Love you - Leslie
