Happy World Card Making Day!!

I am so thrilled to announce that I am this month's Guest Designer for Coordinates Collections. I received the Enchanted Kit to work with and had a blast. The fall themed patterned papers from Basic Grey and Bo Bunny combine effortlessly with the pink and rust cardstock as well as with the gorgeous Maya Road pins and trim. The kit is jam packed with goodies and I was easily able to make 4 12x12 layouts and one 4x6 card with some left over! Go on over to Coordinates Collections and check out the October galleries to see what the Design Team and the members are creating with this gorgeous kit, then head on over to the store and order your own--you won't be disappointed!

Everything from these projects is from the kit (except for the small brown Basic Grey letters and some Stickles and Pearl paint from my stash).

Also, did you know that today is World Card Making Day? The fun folks over at Jillibean Soup are doing a giveaway. So here are a couple of Jillibean cards to get myself entered into the drawing.

Today is also the Bazzill Warehouse sale. It is pretty cool to live 20 minutes from the gigantic warehouse and to be able to browse their overstock cardstock and other items. The paper is sold by the pizza box rather than by the piece. It is a great deal and the sale draws people from all over. I got there just a few minutes before 7am when they opened and got in with the second group of shoppers. Lots of fun!

Finally, many of you scrapbookers who visit blogs often probably already know this story, but for those who have not heard yet... There is a card drive going on (sponsored by Jennifer McGuire and friends) for a 5 year old girl named Kate who was diagnosed with an aggresive brain tumor this summer. For those interested in reading Kate's story and updates on her progress you can go HERE. If you are interested in sending cards, go HERE for all the information. My heart seriously aches for this little girl and her family. I don't have tons of money to donate, but I can certainly make a few cards. I hope that the 100's of cards being sent will at least bring a smile to Kate and her family's faces and remind them there are so many people out there sending them good thoughts for Kate's recovery.
