Happy World Card Making Day!

WCMD 2010The fine art of cardmaking seems to get a little lost in the world of email, Facebook, Twitter and even junk mail. There is something special about seeing a handwritten, hand decorated envelope in your mail box. The act of creating a handmade card with a special person in mind can bring so much joy to both the creator and recipient.

There are lots of paper craft companies and blogs celebrating this fun day. Make sure you hop on over to the Paper Crafts website as it is a good place to start. Craft Critique and Splitcoaststampers also have some World Card Making Day activites and annoucements, too.

This weekend, you can also use coupon code OWHCARDS for 10% off your total purchase at eclectic Paperie. Minimum $10 purchase. Not applicable to previous orders. Can be applied to all pre-orders, too. Coupon code good until Sunday, Oct 3rd, 11:59pm(PST).
