 Today is "World Card Making Day"!  

Everyone loves to give and receive cards....birthdays, anniversaries, holidays and other special occasions.  I love to send cards for "no special reason" too!  It makes for a fun and joyful surprise for the recipient.

Here's a little info about this special day...


World Card Making Day began in 2006 as National Card Making Day. Founded by Paper Crafts magazine to bring card makers together at the beginning of the busiest card-making season of the year, it was first held on October 7, 2006. The initial celebration involved the Paper Crafts magazine audience only; however, due to the positive response it received and the worldwide popularity of card making, the holiday became known as World Card Making Day from then on.

Celebrating its 11th year in 2016, World Card Making Day is celebrated annually on the first Saturday in October. It's a day for the card-making community -- hobbyists, retailers, and manufacturers -- to unite and celebrate the connection and creativity that is the heart of card making.

As many of you know, October is also "Breast Cancer Awareness" Month.   This topic is very near and dear to my heart so I would like to share a few cards that I've made in the past on this topic. They are a reminder of how precious life can be and what a joy it is to receive inspiration in the way of a card.

Thanks for stopping by to share "World Card Making Day" with me.  I hope my "Breast Cancer Awareness" cards inspire you to create a card of encouragement for someone you know.
