Today is world card making day! Woohoo! All crafters and cardmakers can unite one day while all the stamp and craft stores have sales to make us all go broke. That is basically what today is all about. With any luck, i can get some stuff done today. And by stuff i mean crafty stuff, not just regular household mumbo jumbo.
So as i find my favorite stores that are having sales today, i'll post them here.
As i find sites that are having games, challenges and prizes, i'll post them here.
And if i get to make some cards today, i'll post them here too. :)
So it's 9:16 am. Jack and I have just finished eating our cereal. (which hop on over to http://limelightpapercrafts.blogspot.com/ as they have a fun ongoing game today. Sort of like the what's in your purse game. Every 2 hours they'll make you hut something down with your camera. you take a pic and pot it and then you're entered into a drawing to win some fabo gifts. the first thing to take a pic of was your breakfast!) Baby Gabe is still sleeping. So as Jack finishes up... these are some specials i'm finding...
limelightpapercrafts - fun, games, challenges and prizes!
My Favorite Things For all orders placed today it's a BOGO! Buy one get One! Thats right! You buy a set and MFT will surprise you with an additional set of their choice. 1 per customer.

The Classroom at Ellen Hutson's blog is having some challenges. The first one you even have until the 10th to complete!
UNITY! will surely be giving stuff away. They are the absolute most generous stamp company i know. You know i love unity and the hip hop. And i just hopped on over to their forums on splitcoast and sure enough, Angela is there Doot-di-doo-ing away. :) Here's a link to the thread

And now it's 9:30. See all the damage i can help you do in just 14 minutes? Peek back in often, i'll keep this up all day! :)
Yep, it's 9:40 and i already have some new stuff for you to check out. Don't worry, i wont be updating every 10 minutes all day long. If i did that then i'd really never fit in any crafting time! Nope. The jackster is watching "Jack's Big Music Show on Noggin and Gabe is still sleeping so i still have a bit of browsing time to find the fun stuff for YOU to do today, even if i dont have the time. haha.
SPLITCOAST is having some fun give aways and challenges today. So by the way, i'm a big splitcoast gal and if you dont have an account there, you're missing out on some fun. It's free. GO make an account!

Update My hubby took Jack out fishing for a bit! Woohoo! And it just happened to be time to feed the baby when he was getting ready to leave so i did that and now he's sleeping next to me in his swing. You know what this means... time to be crafty!!!!
I decided to keep up with my promise the other day to create a bella card. Besides... Little witchy and battiful darling were just calling my name! So i completed Leanne's embellishment challenge! We were supposed to use 5 buttons and ribbon on our card. Here's what i did!
I added my buttons among the pumpkins and my moon is coiled up ribbon. (ugh - and just as i type this, my husband and child are back. They have not been gone for long at all! which means something happened. Sigh. There goes my craft time.
Maybe i'll be able to sneak back on later!
