World Card Making Day and Card Cupids Celebration

I know it's rare for me to post on a weekend, but I will have posts today and tomorrow because I have some fun things to let you know about. First of all; Happy World Card Making Day! 

(Make sure you read all the way to the end, I am using Steph's post to describe the Card Cupids challenge, but I have something to add at the bottom in red)

At Card Cupids we are celebrating not one thing, but two:

After two years of hard work and dedication, Card Cupids is officially a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. We are excited to take this next HUGE step as it will help us to support even more children in need.  Each and everyone of our Card Cupids is  big part of making this happen.  We hope that you will continue to support our mission of filling the mailboxes of children in need with smiles.
Now let’s have some fun and create some cards for the Card Cupids Kids. To play along, post the below Card Cupids blog button on your blog and participate in our Sending Smiles Challenge by sharing a new card that you make to send a child a smile (which we hope you will consider sending in to Card Cupids). If you create a special post about Card Cupids celebration with your card and our blog button, please add TWO links below to receive an extra chance at the prizes. To make sure that everyone has a chance to play along, the challenge will be running until 11:59pm on October 12.
We will be giving away THREE amazing prizes. Bugaboo Stamps will be giving a $30 gift certificate, Fresh Brewed Designs will be giving 5 free digis of your choice and Whimsy Stamps will be giving a $15 gift certificate.

So we would love to see what you create to send a smile to a child. After creating your project, you can link it to the post on the Card Cupids blog. Follow the directions above for your chance to win! 
In addition to the chance to win prizes on the Card Cupids blog, I will be drawing a random name from the comments on my blog for a $10 gift certificate to Pholkart Blessings.
All you have to do to have a chance to win the gift certificate from me is to leave a comment on my Saturday, Sunday, and/or Monday posts. If you comment all three days, you have three entries, you don't have to be a follower of my blog, but if you are, I will toss your name in again. I will announce the winner next Saturday morning.
Thanks for dropping by!
