Reasons to Stamp in October for World Card Making Day!

You know...assuming you NEED a reason - LOL! :)

It's World Card Making day today - that's a GREAT reason to stamp!

As I was trying to decide what post today, I was thinking that I was LOVING the Divas challenges so much, that I might try my hand at the Sketch team (you know, because the colour challenges and inspirations challenge are just NOT keeping me busy enough - uh huh - *coughcoughsarcasmcoughcough*)

So, in honour of World Card Making Day (and the reasons to stamp), I decided to do a Christmas card today...because once you hit October 25th on this list, that's only 2 months till Christmas!

Today's card features "Joyous Celebrations", a cute little set available in the Holiday Catalogue. If you're coming to Stampin' Extravaganza as one of my customers, this is the set you'll be receiving. If you're not coming...why not?? There's still TWO more days to register, so hurry!

Here's my card:

What do you think?
