Today’s card and a big, big giveaway (6-26)

Happy Friday everybody! 🙂

So glad you stopped by today.

Meet today’s card.


It comes courtesy of Paper Crafts magazine. The nice peeps over there invited me to be part of their Card Creations Vol. 7 blog tour. That means me and 14 other gals are sharing a project on our blogs today that were made just for the magazine.

This card is one I made. It appears in the Mother’s Day section.

It’s a little different than the same old card.  You know how most cards consist of single sheet of cardstock that is folded in half?   I tried something else for this one. I used two single panels of cardstock and bound them together with a binder clip. Not exactly revoluntary, but different no less. 😉

 The magazine doesn’t show it so here is a peek of the card’s inside. 😉


The inside sentiment says:  Because of that, life couldn’t be better. Thank you.

Ok, so, I’ve shared the card. Let’s talk about the good stuff – the giveaways.

I’ve got a copy of Card Creations Vol. 7 for one of you.


All you have to do is leave a comment here. I’ll randomly pick a winner on Tuesday. Please know that your comment might not appear right away. Sometimes I have to approve them. It’s a WordPress thing so never fear. I get a notice everytime someone comments and I will be sure to approve as soon as I see it! It will show up after I do that. I promise.

And be sure to stop by the blogs of the 14 other tour participants because they each have a copy of the magazine to give away, too! Hooray!

Just click on their names here, and you’ll be taken right to their blogs. (Pssst… Go. Do it. You know you want to. )

And there’s more. You are also going to want to go to the Paper Crafts and Moxie Fabs blogs. Let Cath, Kelly and the rest of the Paper Crafts gang know which card you liked best from the tour.

They’ve put together 10 prize packs.  Five prize packs will go to people who leave comments on  the Paper Crafts and Moxie Fab blogs about their favorite cards. The remaining five prize packs will go to some lucky guys and gals who leave comments on this blog as well as my 14 tour friends’ blogs. The PC bunch has some secret method for picking those winners.

Whew. That was kind of a mouthful!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by today! I wish you the best of luck!

I’ll be back over the weekend with a new card.
