WCMD Winner Blog Hop

Welcome to the World Card Making Day Winner blog hop!  I am so excited to be here today with so many amazingly talented ladies! If you are following along on the hop, you should have come here from Kelly Rasmussen's blog!  I'm sure she has something amazing for us today!

 I still feel so honored that one of my cards was chosen for World Card Making Day!  It was really fun to see in this most recent issue of Paper Crafts Magazine.  My card was chosen in the Thank You catagory, but for today's card I picked a different theme...simply Hello!  Here is my card...

IMG_5494_edited-1

I stamped Turning A New Leaf from PTI behind the "window" made from PTI's Take Three die.  I added a Copic colored butterfly from Butterfly Dreams and the sentiment from Communique Sentiments.  I finished the butterfly off with my favorite silver pearls and I can't forget that woodgrain impression plate too!

IMG_5496_edited-1

We have some fun giveaways for you today!  Each blog in the hop is giving away a little something fun and the current issue of Paper Crafts Magazine!  So don't forget to leave comments along the way!  

I have a little giveaway today!  I will choose a winner from the random generator to win this PSA Stamper and 2 sets of Peel and Stick Stamps, one Christmas Theme and one Halloween Theme, another sentiment set and a couple fun sticker sets from K&Company!


I will also have one more drawing for a copy of the March/April Paper Crafts issue.


The commenting will close, Monday, February 20th @ 11:59pm.  I will announce the 2 winners on Wednesday, February 22nd.  

Your next stop on the hop is my sweet friend, Lisa Petrella!  Thank you so much for coming by today!  Have a great day!
