World Card Making Day 2013 - Whimsy Stamps Blog Hop!


Happy World Card Making Day 2013!

World Card Making Day is a holiday especially for card makers around the world to ... celebrate the creativity of handmade cards and the personal connection that they create between friends and family, AND to kick off (and get a head start on) the holiday card-making season!

Today, Whimsy Stamps is celebrating World Card Making Day 2013 with our very own BLOG HOP!

The hop starts today at 9.00AM (EST) and ends on Monday 7th October 2013 at 12.00PM (EST).

We've hidden a fantastic rubber stamp prize pack somewhere along the hop, so be sure to complete the hop and leave comments on all the DT's hop posts to enter! We will announce the lucky winner on the Whimsy blog on Monday, once the hop has ended.


But that's not all! Once you've finished the hop and entered the prize draw, hop on over to the Whimsy Stamps store where you will find some free digital stamps that have been posted in celebration of WCMD! Be quick to grab them, as they will only be available for a very short time!

Finally, we will be posting another announcement on the Whimsy blog on Monday, which could save you a few pennies, so be sure to check it out!

For my card today, I decided to make a Christmas card with one of the newest releases from Whimsy Stamps! I used the *NEW* Penguin Joy rubber stamp from the September release and paired it with some Echo Park Holly Jolly 12x12 collection papers.  I also used my Whimsy Stamps Holly and Berries die:


Okay, so now it's time for you to hop! If you’re happened upon this post by chance and would like to hop with us, hop on over to the Whimsy Stamps blog to begin the hop. If you’ve hopped here from the Whimsy blog, then you’re in the right place and your next stop is ... Kathy's blog!

Finally, here is a full hop list in hopping order:


Thanks so much for stopping by today and happy hopping!

Hugs,
