World Cardmaking Day!

Something very exciting happened to me yesterday morning. I was doing my usual early morning blurfing and internet browsing and I found Mr. Linky on the Paper Crafts website where you could add your blog if you were doing something for World Cardmaking Day. I added my name to the list, then proceeded to check emails and there was one from Brandy Jesperson at Paper Crafts inviting me to be a part of the top 25 for their blog tour. Wow!!

So I'm back to talk some more about WCMD and offer up a coupon code for a 25% discount at the Paper Crafts/CK online store. The coupon code is KTFX-CU4J-SK9U and is good for your total cart order from 9/21 through 23:59:59 (mdt) on 10/12/09.

I also have a card to share, along with a teeny tiny technique.

I found this wonderful skyline image at an Etsy shop called BurntCookie. I stamped it on white cardstock and cut it out, then traced the wave along the bottom of the image on Papertrey Soft Stone cardstock to form the sidewalk. The sentiment is from Rubber Soul.

Now, for the technique. To make the sparkly sky I dunked my finger in a jar of Shimmerz and brushed it across Papertrey Spring Rain cardstock. If you've ever watched those home improvement shows where they test out the paint by dipping their fingers in the paint can and smearing it on the wall, here's your chance to try it out!

So pretty much from now until WCMD on October 3rd there will chatter and promotions on Moxie Fab and Paper Crafts Connection. This will be a lot of fun, and I'm happy to be a part of it!
