Can you tell I'm a teensy bit excited?  I love days dedicated to the crafts I love.  It's like a guilt free holiday to spend the day creating.  What could be better?  Over at StampNation we are having a blast with the pattern play challenges.  We are going around the globe visiting 10 of the different countries represented by some of our StampNation members.  Each country has a unique fabric/pattern that is identified with that country.  (The quilter in me is doubly excited about creating for these challenges)  For example, we found bandannas at our first stop in the USA.   Just wait until you see what our members came up with using bandannas as an inspiration.

As an extra special bonus Catherine Pooler has given me a ONE MONTH STAMPNATION subscribtion to GIVE AWAY!!!  All you have to do is leave me a comment on this blog post letting me know if you are doing any crafting on the World Card Making Day.  Woot Woot!  You have 24 hours to leave a response, so comment NOW!  :)  Be sure to leave me a way to contact you, so you can quickly take advantages of all that our sponsors are offering.
