WCMD Winner Blog Hop!

HI!

I am VERY excited to be included with this fabulous group of ladies as the winners of the World Card Making Day Contest from Paper Crafts Magazine! I still remember the morning I woke up to see my name on that list- truly a moment I will never forget!

We have a TON of inspiration to share today- as well as some amazing GIVEAWAYS!

The hop starts at the Paper Crafts Connection blog- you should be arriving here from Sharon Dunn's flickr photostream, but if you've gotten lost along the way I have listed the entire line up here for your convenience!

Stephanie Washburn <<----- YOU ARE HERE!

I was one of the five winners in the Thinking of You/Hello category so I thought I'd make a "Thinking of You" card to share with you today!


I used some of my favorite products on this card! I took several different patterned papers from the newest Market Fresh Kit FARMHOUSE DREAMIN' and cut out a bunch of hexagons with the Sizzix Hexagon Die. Then, I pieced them together in a pattern I liked and glued them to a piece of cardstock. Underneath of the hexagon pattern, I stamped just the bottom of the doily stamp (also from the Farmhouse Dreamin' kit) to create a scalloped border!

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Through the Trees set and the ribbon is by far my favorite of all time- Summer Sunrise Satin!


Now how about a GIVEAWAY!?

You know, I won a pretty fab prize package in this contest- and it just didn't feel right to keep it all to myself! When the packages started coming in, I put aside a few items for a very special giveaway-here it is! 


One randomly selected person will win the above prize! LOTS of K & Company papers and embellishments, AC Cardstock cards and envelopes, adhesive from Elmer's, an EK Success punch, some stamps from American Crafts and Clear & Simple, Zig markers, and a bunch of INK!

LOTS of goodies and I am more than happy to share with YOU!



A second randomly selected person will win a copy of the March/April edition of Paper Crafts Magazine! This is the one that showcases all of our winning cards! SO exciting!


These giveaways are open to ALL!
