Hello and Happy World Cardmaking Day!!!
What better reason to send someone a card than,
“just because.” It’s the perfect way to send a smile or a hug by mail, and a

The entire piece was then adhered to the front of my card using adhesive foam.

We are so thrilled that each hour today we have the opportunity to giveaway a prize…or two! As we always say, without an incredible group of sponsors which support all that we do at SCT, we would not have a magazine to share with you. Each hour we will ask you to visit them to give them a warm "SCT thank you" and when you do you might find a surprise waiting there too.
