Cards and Teachers - October 5th
Saturday is World Card Making Day. October 5th is also World Teacher's Day. So it would be a great day to teach someone to make a card!
Paper Crafts Magazine sponsors a contest for World Card Making Day and there are fabulous prize packages. There are five categories of cards and four winners will be chosen for each for a total of twenty winners. You can get all of the details HERE. Entries must be postmarked by October 15th so you can craft this weekend and be able to enter on time.
If you'd like to see the work of the winners from last year you can follow a Blog Hop where they each share a card and some tips for card making - you can find the blog hop HERE and there are prizes too!
The card at the top of this post is one that I taught in a class at the Senior Center last year. I thought it was appropriate to honor both holidays. You can read all of the details at THIS POST (the card is in the second part of the post so you'll need to scroll down a bit).
Today is not a school day but you might want to make a thank you card, write a note inside and send it to a teacher next week. There are quite a few teachers in our family and while candles, mugs and picture frames are nice, I think that a heartfelt note is the best way to show how much you appreciate the hard work they do.
I hope that you can get together with some friends and do something crafty this weekend. It's been a busy week and I have some family plans that will take up most of the weekend. With a little luck things should settle down so I can edit photos and share some new projects next week!
