WCMD 2017 | Welcome + Details + Craftie Challenge For All!

WCMD2017

It is Midnight of October 7th here at w&w headquarters so we are kicking off the World Card Making Day (WCMD) celebrations! Woohoo!

Beginning at 3:00 a.m. (CST) we will be posting challenges throughout the day, every 2 hours, right up until 9:00 p.m.! And that's not all! At 7:00 a.m. you will get inspired by our October Leading Lady, the one and only Priyadarshini Deshpande aka Piyu!! AND at 9:00 a.m. we have a very special WCMD Big Hop featuring a dazzling array of very special guests!!

For right now let's get some of the nitty gritty information out of the way so we can have fun, fun, fun all day (and night) long!
  1. We want everyone to be able to play so there is *no* requirement to use w&w products although we would be thrilled if you did (and we have freebies in the shop and for our Facebook Family). ;-)  Please make a new card though!
  2. We will have all challenges open until next Sunday, October 15, 2017 at 11:55 p.m. CST to let you create a little more than just on WCMD because celebrations should never be limited to a single day, right?   
  3. If you are unable to participate in the challenges, simply comment on the posts.  We will be giving one prize to a randomly drawn commenter compiled from all WCMD 2017 posts.
  4. Add your link to the appropriate Inlinkz Link-up tool for that post.  You may enter as many times as you wish while the challenges are open.  There will a prize posted on each challenge and one card will be randomly chosen as a winner of that prize from those that Link-up.
  5. Have tons of fun!
>>>SCHEDULE & CHALLENGE LINKS<<<


EDITOR'S NOTE: Winners of all the challenges will be announced on a w&w blog post by Wednesday, October 25, 2017. 

>>>GRAND PRIZE<<<

We really want to reward those who enter multiple challenges.  The crafters who enter a different card for at least 3 of the challenges (hopefully all of them!) AND add GP to the name of their link (for example "Jane Smith GP") will be entered into a special pool to receive the Grand Prize.  Entering the WCMD Craftie Challenge below will qualify as 1 of those 3 challenges.    

What is the Grand Prize you ask?  We are giving away $100 credit to the w&w shop (just in time for our upcoming next Release)!

    >>>WCMD CRAFTIE CHALLENGE<<<

    So to kick off our challenges we have a fun and easy one for you just like we did for WCMD 2016.  Simply take a craftie.  A craftie can include a picture or two of where you are making all of your cards for WCMD (this may include the table you are working on, the room, locale, etc.), you crafting, your crafting companions, etc.  We simply adore pictures of crafting in action, crafty spaces and works in progress! Post about your picture(s) on your blog, instagram (#wwWCMD2017, #craftie), Facebook, gallery or the like and link them up below using the Link-up tool.

    Craftie Challenge Prize: $25.00 credit to the w&w shop.

    Enter the Challenge:





    Now that you have all the information get comfy, grab your favourite drinks and/or snacks, inks, stamps, papers and the like and get your craft on!

    Lots of love and happy card making,
    Taheerah (Winnie & Walter Publicist), Shay + Winnie

    9. Happy World Card Making Day to my papercrafting friends here and around the world!!! This is my favorite cardmaking event of the year and Winnie & Walter is my favorite place to celebrate it. This is THE place to be for the GREATEST challenges with the MOST generous prizes and the BEST fun!! YAY!

      So glad W&W continues to open the WCMD challenges up for an entire week and invite everyone to participate without requiring your products to be used. Even though I might have tons of W&W, I know some are still getting acquainted with you.

      Thank you, Shay and Taheerah along with all the crew and talent at W&W, for your generosity and the many, many hours of work you put into making this event so much fun and a true celebration of our cardmaking hobby!!!

    24. This is very exciting. Got to know about your challenges from Dr Sonia who shares all the info about challenges. I have heard about your products but they are not available in Sri Lanka. It is recently that online stores opened. I am an old fashioned person therefore now only getting used to ordering online. I will visit your shop defenetely as I spend all my extra money to purchase crafty items to help me dwell in my own world of creativity. Thank you for your efforts to make us crafters happy. Much appreciated. hugs love you all

    25. This is the first time I am visiting you'll but there will be no last time till I close my eyes. Thanks for the amazing challenges and the prizes. Dr Sonia is the person who got me interested in crafts and also the person who informed me about these lovely challenges through her blog. Thank you very much for the hard work you'll have put in to make all of us crafters happy. Stay blessed.

    26. Yay!! So happy to participate in your WCMD challenges and hop again this year. I have been in a creative slump lately, with so many things to take care of that my mojo has flown the coop. I didn't plan to make anything for WCMD but then my blog friend, Janis, got me all excited to get inky and I ended up pulling out some of my W&W stamps, along with others...and had a ball. Happy WCMD to everyone and thank you W&W for getting my craftie mojo back in gear!

    27. Wow! What an amazing line of challenges!! I was upset that I couldn't craft on the exact card making day as I was out of station, but when I got to know about the challenges being open week long, I was excited immediately! Loved playing along many of the challenges :) Thank you so much for the gorgeous inspirations too! :)

    28. I was out of town on the actual WCMD but managed to make a few cards this week and am so happy that you extend the celebration so those of us who were busy or working on the weekend could still participate. I love all the fun challenges.

    29. Whee! I do believe I managed to enter every one of the challenges. Thank you so much for all the great inspiration and challenges. I had a blast!

    30. Thank you for this amazing opportunity. I'm a new crafter and this is my first time entering a challenge. As a newbie, my crafting supplies are very minimal, so I was extremely grateful that the use of W&W products was not required to enter. I thoroughly enjoyed these challenges, as did my daughters, who crafted with me. I almost never use the camera on my phone, but I had to take lots of photos. I also had to figure out how to use Instagram to link my images. Lots of learning took place over the last week. Again, huge thanks to W&W for this wonderful opportunity to show our work.
