World Card Making Day Thank You Blog Hop


Hi and welcome to World Card Making Day Thank You Blog Hop! If you arrived from Paper Crafts &Scrapbooking Blog, you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hop from there! I was lucky enough to be one of the winners in the 2013 World Card Making Day Card Contest hosted by Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine and am so honored to be hopping along with this group of amazingly talented ladies! =) This hop is to say a big Thank You to Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine for hosting the event and to all the supporters and friends for all your love. There is no words that can describe how grateful I am for all the joy that this amazing crafting community has brought me ever since I started making cards. Your encouragements has helped building up my confidence and I can't thank you enough for that. So, truly, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! =) Ok, enough of that blah, blah, blah, here is my card for the hop.


We are to use the goodies from our prize package to make today's card in the category that we have won. My winning card is in the Hello/Thinking of You department, since it was a thinking of you card, I decided to make a hello card for the hop. =)


The yummy patterned paper is from Cottage Farms 6x6 Paper Pack by Pink Paislee. I added a couple of fun elements from BasicGrey's Carte Pastel Capture Waterfall Theme Pack. The xoxo circle is from Spot On set by Lil' Inker Designs and I cheated a bit by using the Hearts and Scripty Hello dies from Lawn Fawn for a few finishing touches. The hearts and hello are coated with Rock Candy Distress Stickles for a subtle shine.

That's all I have. But as you know, every blog hop needs a good old fashioned prize, right? =) Here is a little something that I put together. All you need to do is leave your name and email in the linky thingy below for a chance to win! The deadline to enter is March 7th at 11:55pm Pacific Time.


Here is what's in the box/package:
  • A full pad of Lawn Fawn Daphne's Closet 6x6 Petite Paper Pack
  • An assortment of 6x6 patterned paper from Carta Bella So Noted
  • An assortment of 6x6 patterned paper from Echo Park Sweet Girl
  • {a BIT} of Insta-Frames rubber stamp set by Unity Stamp Company
  • A package of Fancy Pants Wonderful Day Patterned Photo Frames
  • A package of Fancy Pants Wonderful Day Pennants
  • A Package of Fancy Pants Wonderful Day Button Set
  • A package of Zva Creative self adhesive gems
  • A package of Queen & Co. Candy Shoppe Ice Accents
