Happy World Card Making Day

Good Morning Everyone!

It's early this morning and I am catching up on my online episodes that I missed this past week while I enjoy my first cup of coffee. Busy day yesterday so I didn't get a chance to put anything up, so I thought I would get that done early before starting on the various WCMD challenges that will be around today. More details about all those at the end of this post. It's a rainy day here in Rhode Island so it should be a good day for creativity.
Now, for yesterday's cards. The first one is for Get Sketchy challenge #8. I am still loving my new Basic Grey Indian Summer papers and chose another piece for this card along with more of the In Colors: Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango and Razzleberry. I started with a 5 1/4 x5 1/4 piece of Soft Suede and then a 5x5 piece of Crushed Curry. The DSP circle is 4" and the Suede Circle 3 1/4 (I think...I don't remember the exact size.) The leaves around the edge of the circle are from the die cut sheet in the Indian Summer package. I used my petitite oval nestabilities with SU's "Oval All" stamp set for the main image which I stamped in Razzleberry Ink. Finally, I added the antique brads to finish the card and to get those "bonus points" for adding them to the card. My second card is for WSC challenge. This is Beate's 100th challenge and to celebrate she is giving away a few goodies. Be sure to check it out and play along. I'm also going to upload this card to Two Peas for Kristina Werner's FF challenge to make a smaller card. I started with a 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 piece of paper from My Mind's Eye Bohemian Collection. The base paper and the pattern paper are the back and front of the same piece. The stamped image on the circle is from SU "Circle All" set in Ruby Red Ink. The ribbon is from a wedding favor I got when I attended a wedding last month. The sentiment at the bottom is from SU's "Fundamental Phrases" Finally I added the Prima Flower and the brad to finish the card.
So, what's on the agenda for WCMD today? Well, SCS is hosting a mulitude of challenges in their forums. Also, Anne at Creative Antics is giving away some awesome goodies on her blog, so be sure to check them out. I hope you have a chance to do something creative to celebrate today. I shall post my creations either later today or tomorrow.
Also, if you are a General Hospital fan be sure to check out the WUBS TUB spoilers and WUB TUB blog. Huge week in casting news and other happenings on set. So exciting! Can't wait to see the changes they are making. Also, be sure to check out my video in the post below. Have a great day!
