Card Inspiration & RAK!

Like I mentioned the other day, I'm always making a card at the last minute - I hate that! So, I've decided I just need to crack down on myself & take some time to make a whole bunch of cards! I've made myself a list of cards that I'd like to have on hand. Yes, I realize that it's a rather extensive list and that I may never have them all at one time, but at least I have something to go by!

So, I'm asking for help from you, my readers...

First of all, am I missing any holidays or occassions (aside from Halloween, which I don't celebrate)? If so, post a comment & let me know!

Secondly... I love to "card-lift" ideas, especially ones that look great but are easy to put together. If you have a card that you'd like to share, either one you made or just one that has captured your eye, please leave me a comment & the link!

And make sure when leaving a comment that you have a way for me to contact you, because I'm going to randomly choose a winner to receive a little something special! :)

Back to my list... let me know, is there anything missing...
