    yeh, new class! So curious what it will be. Yesterday I finally cleaned up my whole crafting room. It really was necessary, i couldn’t find my supplies anymore. Cleaning can be so inspiring though!

  9. Luray

    Can’t wait to find out about the new class! And thanks for the chance to win one!

  10. I made some cards for Operation Write Home on Saturday using some formulas by Club Scrap. They are great for using the paper to the maximum (very little waste), as well as making cards that are similar, but not all the same. Love that!

  11. Jess

    I am taking care of my three month old — but will try to sneak in craft time during naps!! :-)

  12. I made some cards yesterday for Halloween and for a birthday party I’m headed to today!

    Sigh, I was unable to participate in World Card Making Day because we had other plans. Hopefully next year I can participate.

  16. Karla A

    I spent World Card Making Day selling my cards at our local indie craft fair “Market Day Iowa”, I sold the most cards I have all year, so I had a great World Card Making Day. Thanks for the chance to win!

  17. debby

    I made more cards for my stash and a baby card to welcome a friend’s new baby boy. It’s always a good day when you can relax and make cards. I’d love a spot in class.

  18. Holly

    I’m so sad I missed out on card day! I had plans of cleaning my house and card making, but then I got strep instead. Thanks for the chance to win! Maybe I’ll take a rain check and make next Saturday my card-making day!

  19. Stephanie Z

    I worked on my Christmas card for this year. I used a previously purchased stamp and cardstock but added some new 12 x 12 holiday print cardstock. Your class are really terrific! I’ve taken 3 of them so far.

  20. Tracy Timm

    I was really hoping to stamp, however, after cleaning a trail to my desk and then cleaning my desk, I found that I had run out of World Card Making Day! I plan to do a couple of cards tonight…now that I can find things again :-) Thanks for the opportunity to win a class. I have never taken one but often thought I should! Would love the experience to see if I would like to take more.

  21. I didn’t get a chance to do much for WCMD because I had so many family commitments. I did manage to complete a couple of cards for challenges, however!

  22. Sally Brown

    On World Card Making Day I am making cards for Operation Write Home using my new free stamp!

    I spent part of WCMD jogging in a 5K race in our town. The rest of the day I was going through blog hops that highlighted this celebration. I’ve been so inspired by everybody’s wonderful projects on the OWH blog, the Paper Connection posts, the Penny Black blog. My eyes are getting blurry fom computer reading but it is so much fun to see so many artists participating. Thanks to everyone. I signed up for the newsletter. Can’t wait to hear about the next class.Thanks

    How fun World Card Day is!!!! Spending a productive day making cards for Hospice. The volunteers/staff take the cards to their terminal patients as a special treat for them or take a few for special occasions (think Valentine’s Day, Birthday, etc.) for the patient to give to their spouse, mother, father, etc.,etc. Hope beyond hope to be the lucky random number

  35. Didn’t make it in to my craft room for WCMD. I was traveling and following all of the action on my iPhone. I love Online Card Classes!!

  36. Elena

    I had baseball games and an allergic reaction to deal with yesterday, so I didn’t get to make any cards until 11pm. I only managed one :(

  37. ha, ha, ha! I didn’t get to make a single card! But I ran in The Color Run! :)

  38. I spent it crafting with my BFF and her 4 1/2 year old joined in too! So cute! I was the proud recipient of, not one,but two of her creations :)

  39. I only got one card made. We have a student staying with us from Germany and we had plans. But I got one finished! And another one started!
