WCMD Thank You Hop




Hey everyone!  I'm excited to be part of a WCMD blog hop today.  Each of the ladies who recently won the competition is participating.  We're using items from our prize box and creating cards in the categories in which we won.

My category is love.  I chose to use October Afternoon's Farmhouse papers and embellishments as well as Lawn Fawn's Woodgrain Backdrops stamp.

This is one of those cards that had a mind of it's own.  I planned to do something much different, but this just evolved.  The woodgrain background paper was created using the woodgrain background/border.  I added a few layers of patterned paper, and then created a flower using fussy cut stamped hearts.  The stem was fussy cut from one of the patterned papers and then I added an OA button and alphas for the sentiment.

 

Simple and easy, not necessarily my normal style, but it does the trick.

I'm also offering some blog candy....a few of the items from the box that I thought I would share.   I meant to take a photo, but totally didn't get around to it, but it includes Pink Paislee's Cottage Farms 6x6 papers, Hero Arts Mint Julep Shadow Ink, Stampin' Up's Snowflake Season Simply Sent Card Kit, and 7 Gypsies Vintage Cling Stamps.  I'll probably also include some other items I have on hand.  To enter, just leave a comment.  If you're a follower, leave me an extra comment to be entered twice.  Comments will close on Thursday March 6th, and I'll announce a winner Friday. March 7th.

OK, that's all from me.  Please head out and check out the rest of the girls' cards, many of them are also offering prizes.  Your next stop is Trinh, but I have the full list below if you need it.
