World Card Making Day Winners Blog Hop

Welcome to ScrapHappy Studio and the World Card Making Day Winners Blog Hop! I am glad that you are visiting today. There will be prizes along the way, so, be sure to leave comments for all the participants to increase your chance of winning some goodies!

You should have arrived from the lovely Becky Olsen's Blog.

First off, I would like to thank Paper Crafts and the many sponsors of the contest for such a fabulous honor and wonderful prize package! Believe me, it was just like Christmas when I opened my prize boxes! So fun!

I want to share my WCMD winning entry, in case you have not yet seen it in the March/April 2012 Issue of Paper Crafts Magazine. My card, Hello Foxy, was one of four winners in the Hello/Thinking of You category. I have never won anything like this contest before and was so thrilled when I was informed.




I have been making cards for awhile and began to submit my work for publication about two years ago. I have had one other project published by Paper Crafts Magazine in the 2011 Special Issue, Holiday Cards & More Vol. 6. Here's a picture of that project, a Christmas Stocking garland.


I have also had some projects published in other publications and I thought I would share a few of those with you today as well. I love my Cricut Expression (oh, and the Zing Die Cutting machine I won too!) and I make a lot of cards with the adorable images available. Here's some that were published last year:











If you love this craft as much as I do, I encourage you to submit your projects to magazines and contests. I do not paper craft to win contests or be published but it sure is exciting when it happens, so give it a try.


I hope you enjoyed seeing what I've been up to in my studio. I do have a surprise box of crafting goodies for one lucky commenter and a copy of the March/April Issue of Paper Crafts Magazine for another, where you can see all the winning entries and some other fab projects as well.


Here's what you need to do to have a chance to win:

1. Become a Follower of my blog.

2. Leave a comment on today's post, let me know you are a Follower.

3. Comments close on Monday, February 20th at 11:59 PM PST.

4. Sorry, but due to shipping costs, only US addresses are eligible to win my prize box. Anyone is eligible to receive the complimentary copy of Paper Crafts Magazine.
5. The winners will be posted on my blog on Wednesday, February 22. Winners will need to contact me so that I can get the prizes shipped.



Thanks for stopping by, have a blessed day,
Carol


Now onto your next stop, the fabulous Julie Day
