Welcome to the 2014 World  Card Making Day Winner’s Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Jamie Greene’s awesome blog. If you didn’t, don’t worry, you can find a complete list of the blogs here.

WCMD Winners 2014

I was soo super excited when I found an email from Holly Anderson in my inbox telling me I was one of the winners in the Birthday category! I couldn’t believe it!! It is such an honour to be chosen as a winner amongst this group of amazingly talented card makers.

However, there was some sad news to follow long after, and the reason for this blog hop.  Unfortunately Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine is coming to an end. I’m still trying the get used to the fact that my favourite card making magazine will no longer be around :(. This now brings me to the reason for this blog hop. Our winning entries were to be published and featured in the April 2015 issue of the magazine, but since the February 2015 issue will now be the very last, PC&S decided it would be fun to have the winners take part in a blog hop to share our winning creations with you all.  There will also be prizes along the hop so keep on reading to find out how to enter!

Here’s my winning entry:

Happy Birthday Ice Creams Card

I made this CAS card using the super cute Ice Cream Cones dies by Simon Says Stamp. I absolutely love these dies! I wanted to make the ice creams the main focal point of my card so I die cut the ice cream parts of the dies a couple of times from some patterned paper in the gorgeous Confetti Paper Pad by Kaisercraft. I then cut the ice creams again from some plain blue and pink glitter cardstock. The cones were then die cut from some Latte coloured cardstock.  Once I put the ice creams together, I stuck them to my card base using adhesive foam. I then stamped on my sentiment and added some colour matching adhesive embellishments to the card.

I had so much fun creating this card and was so glad this was my winning entry! Thank you PC&S for choosing one of my cards and thank you for the big wonderful box of goodies that arrived at my door a few days ago!

Now it’s time for a giveaway! There was soo much crafty awesomeness in my prize package, I couldn’t possibly use it all myself, so I am offering up a few of my goodies (pictured below) to one lucky hopper.  To enter, just leave a comment on this post by 11.59pm WST on Wednesday, 10 December 2015.  I will then randomly select one lucky winner and announce it here on my blog the following day.  International entries are welcome.

WCMD Blog Hop Giveaway

Now it’s time for you all to hop on over to Kristie Larsen’s blog and check out her gorgeous winning entry.

Happy hopping!
