I *Heart* WCMD!

The big day is almost here! Paper Crafts' third annual World Card Making Day is only six days away! Yep, on Saturday, October 4, 2008 card makers around the world will unite in creativity!

Doesn't my job sound cool?! We INVENT holidays! Once upon a time, we literally sat around a conference table and said, "Let's establish a day where people can come together to celebrate the art of handmade cards. We'll hold it in early October and it will officially kick off the holiday card making season - the most popular time for creating and sharing handmade greetings."

And the rest is history...

Now in our third year (did I mention that already?), the official WCMD Web Site offers ideas for getting involved. From participating retailers to card ideas to its very own online gallery (where anyone can post their creations!), the fun is right at your fingertips!

To spread the word, I've joined the WCMD Blog Tour where 50 of our designers and PC editors are giving away two copies of Cards, Gifts & More: Paper Crafting 3 Ways on their crafty blogs.

So on Saturday, October 4, I will randomly select two people to win this very fun special issue! But I warn you, while this is a giveaway, you'll have to work for it...

1. How many U.S. households participate is card making?

2. What percentage of scrapbookers also make cards?

3. What is the top occasion/theme for making cards?

Visit the WCMD web site (About Section) to find the answers to these questions. Post them in the comment field with your name and e-mail addy and you could be one of my lucky winners!

Happy WCMD!

P.S. I celebrated WCMD a little early this year. Stay tuned for my next blog post where I show off the cards I made in my most recent card group. Hint: 3o cards @ 5 a.m. = one very cranky PK! (I actually incorporated gingham into one of my designs, so you know it's bad!)
