World Card Making Day TODAY (and a Blog Hop Too)

Happy World Card Making Day!

I challenge each and every one of you to send someone a card today (or at the very latest get it in the mail by Monday). Make it yourself if you're up to the challenge! It doesn't have to be elaborate: a few simple words is all it takes. There's nothing like a heartfelt greeting in the mailbox, is there? Make someone's day today!

Several fellow Close To My Heart consultants and I decided to form a blog hop, so check out some amazing cards created by some very talented ladies. You can start here at mine and hop on through. (The link to the next person is near the end.)
The instructions for my accordian card (which would also make a great mini album!) can be found at Splitcoast Stampers (click on the name for a direct link to the instructions if you're interested in learning more).


I am loving the Dimensional Elements- Organic chipboard accents that coordinate with the Twitterpated paper. (These pieces are actually "leftovers" from the upcoming Twitterpated workshop!)

Isn't that felt acorn darling? I can't wait to show off more of the Heartfelt Whimsy felt collection!


You may be wondering where that little blue bird came from, but everyone needs a little bluebird of happiness, and Crystal Blue is a color in this paper pack, even if I didn't use it anywhere else in this project.

Now hop on over to Jena's blog to get this party started! Thanks for stopping by. Happy World Card Making Day!
