World Card Making Day Winners Blog Hop + Giveaway

*For my CAS-ual Fridays post, please scroll down *

Hello paper crafters and welcome to the World Card Making Day winner blog hop! Lots of new cards to see along the hop and did I mention that for every participant in the hop there is a opportunity to win a prize package??!! If you've come from Carol Bloomberg's blog you're on the right track, if you get lost along the way the complete blog hop list is at the end of this post or if you're looking for the beginning, you can go to the Paper Crafts Connection blog.

First off I'll show you what I created and then we'll get onto the goodies!
Here is the card that I won with in the Christmas category:


And here is my new Christmas card to share with you (it was strange making a Christmas card in February lol). I've been on a stamped background kick lately so I just modified my original design to incorporate a stamped background panel. This card will be included in the prize package as well :) 



Now here is what I have for a prize package giveaway...
(some of the WCMD prize package plus some items I cleaned out of my art room)

AND.....
See that Paper Crafts magazine popping up in the back? Paper Crafts is letting us give away a free copy of the March/April issue. So one lucky winner here will win all the goodies, PLUS a copy of the magazine, YAY! 


To be eligible for the prize package you must leave a comment on this post by 11:59pm (pacific time) on Monday, February 20th. One winner will be selected randomly from the blog comments and the winner will be announced here on Wednesday, February 22nd.
The next blog to visit on the hop is Kelly Eubanks!

Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!
Julie
