World Card Making Day Winner? No Way!!!

World Card Making Day, that little contest that Paper Crafts has every year where a few people (hundreds) sent in some cards (1850+) in the hopes of winning some goodies (over a $1000 prize package), maybe you have heard about it? Well, I sent in a few of my fave cards in some of the categories and one of my entries actually won in the "Thinking of You/Hello" category. Now I overslept this morning, not thinking I had a chance and had gone to bed late after catching up on some work while the house was quiet. I awoke to a few fun texts and emails from sweet friends congratulating me, and for the rest of the day you could have knocked me over with a feather! And while I can't share the card with you that was selected, it is set to be published the March/April issue of Paper Crafts, I can share some more timely cards that are perfect for this spooky and kooky time of year.

This quick and easy cutie came together in five minutes using some Cosmo Cricket chipboard and Little Yellow Bicycle stickers.

This one took just a few more minutes and used some October Afternoon paper behind the Little Yellow Bicycle frame and stickers with the Cosmo Cricket stickers.

These cute little cards will get attached to some goodies and dropped and the doorsteps of friends. I am getting better at quick, easy and done. Sometimes I get so caught up in making something elaborate instead of done that I get overwhelmed and then end up not delivering. It has been one of my goals to change that and by keeping more of my projects simple it helps me achieve that.

Chloe and Carter are dressing up at work tomorrow for the Boo at the Zoo event that Hogle Zoo does every year. We spent the afternoon/evening working on the last few details and I can't wait to get pictures! Chloe is dressing up as Peter Pan and we even found some pixie dust (Krylon's new glitter spray in silver) for her shoulders. Carter is going full nerd in an amazing costume that my mom created for him. The Real Player Game called Nightfall has a character profession called a Dervish. I still really don't understand it completely, but all the gamers will and that is all that matters.  But when I share pictures, it will make a whole lot more sense I think.

Anyway, I am hoping to spend the weekend relaxing, socializing with the family on Sunday night and hopefully getting caught up with the stuff that is sitting on my desk needing attention.

First of all though, I think I will enjoy my little visit to Cloud 9 with this win for just a few minutes more  :o)
