Did you know such a day existed? Well, it does! World Card Making Day started in 2006 by Paper Crafts Magazine to bring card makers together at the beginning of the busiest card-making season of the year. I hosted an event for my neighbors and friends in 2007, and it was a great success. I didn't do it the next two years because I was working and not spending much time stamping and card making, then I had my baby boy. Well, now I'm getting back into card making full-force and hosting another WCMD event for my neighbors and friends. WCMD is always the first Saturday of October. However, I'm hosting my event the second Saturday (Oct. 9), since my babysitter (a.k.a. my hubby) will be out of town on the 2nd. I hope I get a good turnout and people have a really fun time! It will be from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM, drop-in style, and we will be making Christmas cards. To cover supplies and my preparation time, I'm charging $5 for 3 cards. Let me know if you're in the Columbus, MS area and want to come (a link to my email is in my profile).

The spouse social went well last week. It was a small group of us, but we had fun talking, eating and crafting together. I always prepare for more people than I expect, so I have a ton of cut cardstock leftover, just waiting to be assembled into cards! Let me know if you want to host a workshop so you can get your friends together to make these cute cards, or something else! Here are the other two cards we made.
