World Card Making Day Blog Hop

 
7749823306 6dc5956b57 n Card Making: The Joy of Making Connections



Hello! I hope that you are enjoying this WCMD Blog Hop. If you are on the right track you came from Patricia's Blog I know there is more hopping ahead so I will try to keep this Short and sweet. To this day I still can't believe that I won in WCMD. I submitted cards that I made enjoying crafting. Cards that I didn't make with the competition in mind or anything like that...I only sent two cards, two cards that I realized only after I learned that I won that I didn't photographed them before sending them off. I had to think hard to remember what I had sent in...so funny! that was such a crazy, exciting, unbelievable moment. I will never forget it. I never even dreamed that I had a chance at winning.

Some time after the competition had ended and the magazine had gotten published I was happily surprised to find in my mailbox that Papercrafts sent me, my winning card back. Here it is below.

 
Thanks Papercrafts and all involve.

I do have mystery box prize to giveaway. I have put together a box of paper crafting goodies that I think you will love. Leave me comment in this post telling me what is the best thing that happened to you this week. I will randomly pick one lucky winner and announce the winner on Monday the 8th of October.

Paper Crafts Connection is giving 3 different prize packages away so dont' forget to go back to the Paper Craft connection when you are done with the hop for a chance at winning one of those prizes.

The next person in the hop is Vanessa.

Thanks for stopping by

stamps used for the Happy Birthday! card are from Wplus9 Design Studio ( hooked on you) stamp set. The embossing was created with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

    The best thing that happened to me this week is that a cousin came through town and surprised me. I hadn't seen him in almost 2 years so it was a great catch up visit.

  9. What cute cards you made, I just love the elephant. The best thing that happened to me this week was that I ran into an old friend that I had not seen for more than 20 years and it was so fun catching up on each others lives. Thanks for a great giveaway also.

  10. Last night five friends came over and we made greeting cards. Had a lot of fun and laughter. Love the elephant. I have a collection of them and this card would fit right in. Good job.

  11. very adorable. I love your cards. The animals are so cute. hmmm this has been a hard week since my daughter took a fall down the stairs and hurt her knee and dealing with doctors and insurance it has been crazy. Well and then my paper trimmer broke...Not nice. So the best thing to happen to me this week would have to be That my daughter is ok. Hurt and sore and may have some damage but she is still ok. Things can always be worse for sure. I am just blessed and thankful she did not hit her head. so that would be the best for me.

  15. Adorable cards! I love the liquid glass bubbles and that there's a tiny bit of blue around them. And your WCMD card is so sweet! Best thing that happened to me this week...my younger daughter yesterday came in and said that she wanted to cuddle....she has never specifically asked to cuddle before - she's the busy running around child and not usually the cuddler.

  16. Super cute cards. I love how you've got dimensional bubbles coming from the fish. :) And that elephant is adorable.

    The best thing that's happened so far this week has been finishing a thought provoking book. I love books that say with you when they're done, and make you think about what happened in them.
