2011 World Card Making Day blog hop- GIVEAWAY {post2}

Hello, friends:}

**After 6am EST-- please click HERE or scroll down for my Fresh Squeezed Stamps post. 


If you came from Vanessa Menhorn's blog, you are in the right place-- if you would like to start from the beginning of the hop, please click HERE or go to the Paper Crafts blog.
Last year's World Card Making Day winners are doing a blog hop to get the festivities started and to share some crafty eye candy:) There are some giveaways--so be sure to leave come love along the hop {list below} for your chance to win


My friend, Linda Dreiling, is sharing my blog today. She was a winner in the Birthday category!! She has created another birthday card to share today. Here is what she had to say about the special techniques she used on this card: 
Ballerina Birthday Card size 4 ¼ x 5 1/2:
Cut flower background paper 4 ¼ x 5 ½ and attach to card front; cut Ballerina paper 3 ½ x 4 ½, saving the strip you cut off, also cut a thin piece of cardboard the same size and mount paper on the cardboard; cut another strip of thin cardboard 1 ¼ x 3 ½ , cut a strip of paper 1 ¼  x 3 ½ and mount on top of previous cardboard.  Cut another strip of paper 1 ¼ x 3 and glue the wrong side of the pattern paper to the back of the cardboard stripe, fold the top of the strip over on itself letting about 1 inch stick up above the top of the cardboard strip and glue down. Attach covered cardboard strip to the right side of the larger cardboard piece letting about ½ “protrude from the top of the card.  Punch out the scallop circle and stamp Happy Birthday, as you mount this put one side on the cardboard strip and glue another small piece of cardboard under the left side of the circle so it will pop up straight across.  Attach a green flower to the seam side of the strip noting placement on the picture.  Spray the seam binding and attach around the large piece and tie off in a bow.  Put Stick pin through and attach all to the card front.  Enjoy and thank you
Card by Linda D.
 Supplies: Cardstock, white, Printed paper, Prima Marketing Fairy Belle, Ink, Nick  Bantock  Damson Plum, Flowers,  Petaloo Canterbury Glittered Fleur greens, Ribbon, Hug Snug seam binding sprayed with Tim Holtz reinker, milled lavender and Close to My Heart Smokey Plum mixed, glue, Studio multi medium matt and Glue an Seal by Inkssentials, Punch, Marvy Large Scallop, Stick Pin, Maya Road and Birthday Stamp, random and thin cardboard.


And for my creation....I wanted to create another card for the category that I won {original card to the left}. Pictures, instagrams, and cameras are still popular, so I used this as my inspiration (to keep with my original idea of being "captured"). I used several Paper Smooches stamp sets {Squeaky Clean, FOLKal Points, Chubby Chums, Alphadots, Hope, Good Gab}. The papers are from The Sweetest Thing: Tangerine collection by My Mind's Eye {available HERE from the Ribbon Carousel}. SOOOOOOOO perfect! LOVE LOVE LOVE this card! And I love that I created my anniversary card early! LOL! 
This photograph doesn't show the polaroid pieces well--but there are two on there! This helped with the "captured" theme:}
Here's a better pic....maybe? 

Did someone say GIVEAWAY??? How do you win??? Just leave a comment below! Please ONE comment per person! Please leave some love for both Linda and myself-- we would really appreciate it! :) **We are giving away a surprise package as our giveaway. Comments close on Sunday, October 7 at 11:59pm EST. Winner posted shortly after. This giveaway is open to all--I do ask that International winners would help pay shipping. THANKS:} 


That's it for me today--don't forget to stop by the 2011  WCMD winners' blogs Next up--hop on over to Becky Olsen's blog
