Unfortunately I will not have time to make even one card that day -- it falls at the beginning of "BANDtober" and my family will be taking on important roles in the biggest fundraiser of the year, the Rough Rider Marching Contest. I will be selling souvenirs while my husband greets the buses carrying the bands as we host bands from all over Texas. My son, of course will be performing -- although as the host it is an exhibition performance as we are not eligible to win our own competition :-) This is usually the first event of competition season and it's fun to see the various bands' programs and props -- some of them are so amazing that you forget that this is only high school, but some are so show heavy you think they forgot this is band, where the MUSIC is supposed to steal the show!

So, knowing how busy the next month is going to be I got a few cards in this week. I recently had an online Thirty-One Gifts party so I could get a hostess exclusive bag (which I LOVE!) and so had a couple of thank you notes for my friends that ordered.
Modern Zinnia & Southern Sass, with Papaya paper and ribbon, Habanero ink (and glitter!) 

I love the Shine Bright set -- so versatile, and Big Words is getting a lot of use. Here I added the Hexagon Background in Mermaid to coordinate and the subtlety works nicely against the larger focal point -- I just wish the shimmer of the diamond came out in the photo!   

So whatever you end up doing on World Card Making Day, I hope you enjoy it!

Happy Stamping!

P.S. Here is the bag I had the party just to get -- it has so many pockets and is very roomy. It is also reversible, with a black chevron on the other side :
