It's World Card Making Day!

My family knows me as the card making queen whenever I am not too busy working on my mosaics.  Right now I am very busy getting ready for a big art show that I will give details about in the very near future.  :)

Since I haven't had the luxury of time on my hands of late, I thought I might share with you some cards I made several months ago that I have never shared on my blog.  I initially had created them for a Crate Paper Color Challenge, and loved the way they turned out.  One was sent to a dear blogger friend, Valerie.  The other I gave to my aunt for her birthday.

In addition to paper & cardstock, I incorporated lots of other materials...copper, feathers, vintage pom pom trim and a bingo marker.  By doing so, it made for lots of lovely texture. 

I have shared some cards with you for World Card Making Day, and now it's your turn.  I would love to see some of the cards you have made recently or even today for that matter!  Paper Issues is having a giveaway on Facebook in honor of this special day.  By posting one of your lovely creations on their page, you have a chance to win a $20 gift card to Paper Issues!  Please go here for all the details!

Have a great Saturday Night!
