Pre World Card Making Day Celebration - including Blog Candy!

Enjoyed some crafty time with friends today to celebrate World Card Making Day!  I had fun creating some pumpkin goodie boxes as a little treat for those who came.  I used the Curvy Keepsake box die to cut out Pumpkin Pie card stock, and stamped on my boxes (before assembling) using images from the Work of Art stamp set, to create the look of grooves and "pumpkin-ify" the boxes a bit more:

For the finishing touches, I cut tags using the adorable tag dies that come with the Curvy Keepsake framelits, die cut a leaf using the Flower Fair framelits, and tied them off with a bit of Mossy Meadow ribbon:

So, what are your plans for celebrating World Card Making Day?   How does some blog candy sound?  Leave me a comment letting me know what you are thinking of creating on World Card Making Day, what your favorite Paper Pumpkin kit is, OR what your favorite stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog is (bonus points if you answer all three!).  Please leave me a comment before midnight PST on Sunday, Oct. 5, 2014.  I'll randomly select someone from those who leave comments to receive a Wish Big Paper Pumpkin Refill kit. 

I'll announce who is selected here on my blog on Monday, Oct. 6th, and that person will have until Oct 8th to contact me to claim the kit.  Please note I can only ship this kit to a U.S. address, so you must be able to provide a U.S. address in order to claim the kit.  (Apologies to my international readers and friends!)

Look forward to hearing from you!  And, be sure to check back tomorrow for another giveaway! 

Thanks for stopping by!

On World Card Making Day, I made cards from Seriously Amazing Paper Pumpkin which is now my favorite Paper Pumpkin kit. Just used card and gift bag for friend's 50th party tonite. Thanks Michelle for getting me going on it! Favorite stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog is Festival of Trees. Can you see a theme here? I like trees!

Hi Michelle,
I'm working on Halloween cards for my seven grandkids today. I think my favorite Paper Pumpkin kit is the Noel kit from November 2013. (Thanks for the headsup regarding that, Michelle!) Favorite Holiday Catalog stamp set is Bright & Beautiful...I love stars!
Happy Stampin'!,

Hi Michelle,
I was working on the Sep. Paper Pumpkin on the Card Making Day, which is also currently my favorite: the Halloween Treat Bags. My favorite Holiday Catalog stamp set is the Bright and Beautiful. Great with heat embossing. Happy Sunday, Agnes
