Happy WCMD 2012 :)

Hello everyone, how's it going? Originally, I had planned to share a simple little gift wrap this weekend but than it dawned on me... this is just not the appropriate thing to do for a card-maker on World Card Making Day, right? Thus, a fresh new card it is :)

Handmade Autumn Birthday Card with Flower

I think this is a fun combination with the elegant rhinestones and the rustic woodgrain patterns.

So, how do you spend today? Will you be making some cards? I sure hope to dive into my stash since the next week will be all about scrapbooking for me! I'll be attending some live workshops - one on Monday evening and the others covering all of next weekend. I'm all giddy with excitement already since two of the weekend workshops will be taught by no other than the Amy Tan :) Wish me luck so I don't disgrace the card-making world in front of the awesomely talented ladies that will be present.
