Yes, there really is a World Card Making Day. And it's today! What a great excuse to celebrate, and maybe even make a card or two. Indulging this little hobby of mine has made me friends around the world, given me the privilege of being part of two fun papercrafting design teams, let me participate in lots of creativity-stretching challenges and given me the opportunity to learn some beautiful art techniques. Oh! And make cards, of course.
On this day, I thought it might be appropriate to join in with one of my design teams, using one of my favourite brands of stamps.
It's not officially my week to post on the Drunken Stampers challenge blog, but luckily the Tropical Hooters team doesn't mind if a Yellow Canary decides to play along. ;) The challenge this week is a PERSON: Neil Armstrong. Of course, you also have the option of making a space- or astronaut-themed card. Naturally, some of the design team rose to the challenge and created cards dedicated to that pioneer astronaut. I went with a slightly more generic space card:
How cute is this little Paper Smooches space alien in his UFO? Not surprisingly, I'm not the only Drunken Stamper using this fun stamp set today. As a Star Trek fan, I would of course like the sentiment to read "boldly go", but I realized that, out of context on a card, that could actually sound a little rude. :P
Since part of my card-making journey has been entering challenges, I'm going to enter this card in two: the current Paper Smooches SPARKS Anything Goes challenge, and Simon Says Stamp's We're Going Dotty challenge.
Happy World Card Making Day! And happy weekend, of course.
