Celebrating World Card Making Day with a Blog Hop!

Happy World Card Making Day 2013! 
World Card Making Day is a holiday especially for card makers around the world to  celebrate the creativity of handmade cards and the personal connection that they create between friends and family, AND to kick off (and get a head start on) the holiday card-making season!

 Today, Whimsy Stamps is celebrating World Card Making Day 2013 with our very own BLOG HOP! The hop starts today at 9.00AM (EST) and ends on Monday 7th October 2013 at 12.00PM (EST). We've hidden a fantastic prize pack somewhere along the hop, so be sure to complete the hop to find it! We will announce the lucky winner on the Whimsy blog on Monday, once the hop has ended. But that's not all! Once you've finished the hop and entered the prize draw, hop on over to the Whimsy Stamps store where you will find some free digital stamps that have been posted in celebration of WCMD! Be quick to grab them, as they will only be available for a very short time!

Here is what I created for today's hop, using one of Crissy Armstrongs cute rubber stamps - Party Pig! The tickets are from the set "Party mini tickets" by Whimsy's Raindrop Echo Designs.

  

Products used:
Stamps: Party Pig, Mini celebration tickets (both whimsy stamps)
Papers: kraft, green galore, (both SU),white (neenah) Designer Paper scraps
Tools: mini ticket die, corner rounder
Embellishments: gingham ribbon, button

Colored with copic markers.
Pig: YR000, R00, R02, W2
Bow: BG10, BG11, BG13
Hat and Balloons: BG10, BG11, BG13, YG00, YG01, YG03, YG06
Ground: E31, E33, YG03, YG06, G99, YG93

Normally I would have added some glitter, but left it off here, because I thought it would work better for a masculine card without, and I am always having too many girly card on hand and hardly any masculine cards. 

 Here is another view.

 Okay, so now it's time for you to hop! If you’re happened upon this post by chance and would like to hop with us, hop on over to the Whimsy Stamps blog to begin the hop. If you’ve hopped here from  Jodi’s blog, then you’re in the right place and your next stop is ... Jackie's blog. Finally, here is a full hop list in hopping order: 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and happy hopping!
