World Card Making Day was a blur. Fall is crazy enough, 2 or 3 events every weekend, and then there was #WCMD! My girls were also running circles around themselves, so we cropped Friday instead.  They worked on past Paper Pumpkin kits.
   And me? I cleaned my space a little, got sucked into the pinterest hole, and drank some wine! Oh! And made a card! Just one.
But it was a good one! Stampin' Up! had 24 hour coverage of WCMD on the demonstrators only Facebook page. Every hour they went live! They gave the demos  heads up on which sets they would be using. (Lots of demos had a day retreat or workshops. And I just happened to have one of them!
     Rarely do I buy special kits or tins.  But since I am starting to build my business, I need to use all the company has to offer. I have had it since April! I am sorry I didn't  open it earlier.
 
It comes in this beautiful tin. It is covered with delicate vines that match the Bird Ballad Stamp set. I want to say it is Calypso Coral and Crumb Cake.
And the cards are Very Vanilla and laser cut into the most delicate daily design. Donxt you love the scallop on the flap? There are 12 cards and envelopes. Finish this kit and you have a very impressive gift. Or make them to send individually.
    It was a quick card (once the decision was made) to finish up. I cut the center circle out and put it aside for later use. I found the vignette I wanted on the DSP and fussy cut it out. I used Petal Pink cardstock to back it, cutting it 4 ⅛" x 5 ⅜".  And then adhered The Birds in the center circle.
   Simple and  beautiful!  My Aunt loved it when I visited her in the hospital Saturday.  (Instead of holding a workshop)
    I am elated that I loved this so much, which will encourage me to purchase more kits in the future. And $18 for 12 beautiful cards/envelopes fit my budget. Go to my website to order yours, using the October hostess code if under $150.  HBG7NUWB.
   I am Dreamin' of the beautiful things I can make with this....
   You keep Dreamin' too!
