WORLD CARD MAKING DAY WITH CANADIAN'S

If you would like to see the DT shaped cards this week at JUSTWORDZ



TODAY IS THE DAY TO CELEBRATE

WORLD CARD MAKING DAY BLOG HOP

WITH CANADIAN CRAFTERS!


WELCOME, WELCOME....


I'll make this short so you can get right to the good stuff. I'm so glad you could make it. If you just happened to come across my blog and would like to start at the beginning of this half of the hop go to Tara's here: http://creativeaccents.blogspot.com/ she has the full list of participants in case you get lost along the way. There are so many wonderful Canadian Crafters in blog land and you get to see some of their wonderful creations. Yeah!!!!!


So here is my card for the day. Being a northerner, this is what i have to look forward too in the near future....Ughhhhhhh.....the dirty S word is coming...






This card was put together with Canadian Businesses in mind. Other than the bugaboo image all the design paper was made by http://www.sherykdesigns.com/shop/ who is Canadian and i used two different sets for this one. Christmas 2 and Christmas 3, both of which sell for 1.00 each. There are five fabulous design papers with these packs. Image was colored with promarkers and DO YOU SEE, the sentiment is from my very own set. Brand New Release, JUSTWORDZ Christmas Season. Added my own crochet flower, and some little extras i had on hand. Glittered it up a bit and presto, it's done.


Challenge i'll enter with this card is:

These are Whimsy stamps that i have won in the past, and wouldn't you know it i just purchased the same set not two weeks before i won....don't figure. So this is how they will come as that's how i received them. I'm adding some of my own crochet flowers as well that match my blog colors....i hope you like and best of luck. What you need to do is:

Please leave me a comment on this post and check back on Monday to see if your a winner. If I'm not contacted by Wednesday i will redraw. Super easy peasy, no hoops to go through here...
