2014 WCMD Winners Hop and Giveaway

Good morning! You may remember a few weeks ago the winners of the 2014 World Card Making Day were announced, and the winning cards were to be published in the April 2015 issue of Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine. Sadly, now with the ending of this publication in February, the winning cards will no longer be published. Sooooo...we all decided to get together and have a blog hop to share our winning creations, and also giveaway some of the goodies we got in our prize boxes that maybe we already had or didn't need!



 You should have hopped here from Mandy LeCroix - the entire blog hop lineup is at the bottom if you just happened along and want to start at the beginning.


I won in the Christmas card category - here is my winning card:


For this, I made a background blending lots of different distress inks, then used a Tim Holtz stencil and some white pigment into to add the "splotchy" layer. My white deer die cut was actually leftover from another project and still laying on my desk - so I decided to add that, then stamped my sentiment from My Craft Spot, added some jute twine around the deer's neck, and then added a fun sprinkling of clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. 


We are in the process of moving, so I unfortunately don't have a picture of my giveaway goodies right now - but I will box them all up and send them to one lucky person who leaves a comment today! Next stop along the hop is Piali Biswas, so hop on over there next!

Here is the entire blog hop lineup in case you get lost along the way:


Thanks for hopping along with us and celebrating! Have a wonderful day!!!
