  4. Susie Smith

    I have been waiting all week for this day….so much to look forward to – chatting with friends on line, sharing our creative goodness together near and far…just looking to share a smile . Finishing up a stack for christmas and some simple everyday cards.

  5. Shirley L.

    I’m making Christmas cards so I get a head start before the holidays consume all my time. It’s been fun so far because of the inspiration of people such as yourself. I have taken a number of your classes and have enjoyed and learned so much from all of them. I keep returning to them for inspiration. Great idea!

    In honor of WCMD, I’m still working on “homework” from your last class – Kickstart! Haha! It was such a jam-packed inspirational class that I’m still applying all the ideas and tips. Love all your classes and can’t wait for the next one. Thanks for the chance to get it for free!!

  10. I planned to celebrate WCM Day with a marathon card making session, but there’s so much fun going on in blog land, that I can’t tear myself away from my iPad. WCM Day should be a two-day affair, one day to blog hop like mad and a second day to create cards! Lol. Thanks for the chance
