DAY FIVE: I’ve blogged for five days in a row! I plan to blog daily this month so I can catch up a little on sharing cards I’ve made over the years.

Today is World Card Making Day 2013! It happens every first Saturday in October and I’ve participated in it over the last few years. It’s a day where I stay in comfy clothes and get together with other crafters or hole up in my craft studio and work strictly on cards – as many as I can make in one day. This year my theme is Halloween and birthday cards.

I need to get back to card making, so I’ll share this card with you now:

blog - scissors and a smileyI got my collection of Copic alcohol markers back in early 2009 or 2010 and in the Spring of 2010, I used them to make this card. I used to have a friend who cut hair and she was left-handed, so I found a pair of lefty shears online and looked at them as I drew them before coloring them in and shading them. I wanted to make her something special she could display in her station and I thought it was a fun way to communicate my gratitude. She’s not sentimental and doesn’t save her cards, so sadly, this is the only evidence of the card. She didn’t keep it, but it will live on in my blog! 🙂

Well, thanks for reading my post – I’ve got to get to the craft studio and I’ll see you tomorrow for Day Six!

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
