World Cardmaking Day Challenges

Happy card making day!  Hope everyone is getting to do some crafting today.  I feel like I've been on withdrawal the last few days.  I've fiddled a bit with a Christmas card design I'm planning for my Mother's cards all week but have only completed one card and haven't scrapbooked at all!  So I'm happy to have some time to make cards.  You practically have to make one on World Card Making day, right?

Here are some challenges I've come across all with prizes:

World Card Making Day with a big, big prize!  The catch to this one is that you have to actual mail in your card and it won't be returned.   The cards will be judged.  I was intimidated at first figuring they would want super elaborate cards, but the blog hop showing last years winners had a more clean and simple style. Clean and simple isn't always the easiest for me either.  I'm somewhere in between.  I still may give it a shot. Contest ends October 15.

Pamela's World of Scrap has several sketches and contests with prizes.  My card below is for one of her sketches.

Artfuldelight has a monthly sketch which is similar to one of Pamela's.  The card at right is for this one.

Operation Write Home has a blog hop and challenge.  If you are making Christmas cards for OWH, the deadline for submitting is coming up soon so be sure to check their 'mailroom' portion of their site for details.  Of course you can always make another type of card and submit it any time.  I keep a priority mail box in my scraproom and just add to it as I make cards.  When I get 30 or 40 which is about what one box will hold without squishing too much, I send it in.  These two have already been placed in the box for my next shipment.

I loved getting to use some wider ribbons that have been in my stash a long time.  Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you have a fun crafting weekend.
