World Card Making Day ~

**Go to this post for a chance to win 1 of 3 sets of Shutterfly Holiday Greetings for you to customize this holiday season!**
Hello, hello!  I’m not sure if you all have heard the news, but you should check out this post on the Paper Crafts Connection blog.  I’m sure that I’ve complained about this before, but I work in an old mall.  Meaning, I seldom get reliable cell phone service, don’t have a computer, nor do I have internet to surf or even check.  That being said, I worked a long day on Monday and was unable to check my email or facebook.  As soon as I set foot in the parking lot, my phone started going off with text messages and facebook alerts.  Turns out a bunch of friends, old and new, wanted to congratulate me!  Yay!! 
I’m over the moon excited and so honored that one of the two cards I submitted for the WCMD contest was chosen.  Humbled, honored and stupefied!  lol  I thought I’d grace this post with my reject   ;o)
WCMD 2011 reject
This is a simple little 4x4 number.  I cut the large heart from red leather and the two smaller from white felt.  The little square buttons has rounded corners, so I rounded the corners of the card too.  Funny how we crafters pay attention to little details like that, isn’t it?  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.  I needed to pull in just a bit more black, so I took the button off and tied a bow with black embroidery floss.  A very simple card that ended up taking way longer than I intended.  ha ha!  That’s how it always goes for me!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Thanks to all of my fantabulous friends for all of the emails, texts, facebook messages, etc – you all made my day that much more special!!   :o) lyss
