World Card Making Day Hop ~

WCMD_2012_FINAL LOGO

Welcome!  Tomorrow, October 6th, is the best holiday of all!  World Card Making Day is a fantastic holiday that celebrates what we all love to do best – play with stamps, ink, glue and paper!   Today, many of the winners of World Card Making Day 2011 are presenting you with cards from the categories that we won in.  Hopefully, you’ve arrived here from the wonderfully talented Kelly Rasmussen’s blog.  You’ll also want to make sure to continue through the end – Holly Anderson will be giving away 3 separate prizes on the Paper Crafts Connection blog.

I happened to win in the Thank You category.  I chose to play with my Copics, which is one of those things I love to do best!  I used the Waterlilies and Humming Along sets from Flourishes.

To make it just a little more interesting, I popped the center of the flower up on dimensional foam tape.  The sentiment just says ‘thank you’ to me, as in ‘thank you for your kindness.’ 

THANK YOU so much for stopping by!  Your next stop on the hop is the fabulous Stephanie Washburn.  Have a super time along the hop!  :o) lyss

You used one of my favorite sayings, so you get an extra vote if they happen to be counting. ;-) Waterlilies are another favorite of mine. I wish I were even a teensy weensy bit as good at coloring as you are. Lovely!!

Holy Smokes...Look at this gem. The coloring is fantastic (duh) but I like the popped center and the water shading in the background. Thanks for appreciating my cleverness, sometimes it feels like no one notices! One day, we HAVE to meet!
