WCMD: Winners (hip) Hop!

wcmd_blog hopJill-Dewey-Hawkins-Thanks-card_WCMD_winner2014_blog_badgeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek! I just squeak all over again! I’m honored as a winner in the World Card Making Day contest! I’m certain there were dozens of awesome entries. I’m fortunate to be one of three winners in the “Thank You” category, along with Virginia and **Isha**(where you arrived from on this hop). Oh, the company I keep! 🙂 The talent! Garsh. I’m so glad I tried and threw my hat (card) in the ring–what a thrill!

SO MANY THANKS to Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine. So. Many. Including our appreciation for hosting this WCMD hop.

I was super excited to hear this was my winning card, because I gotta tell ya, I really enjoy this one—the white, colored stripes, stitching, lines, this LF die and TT sentiment…eeek! Happiness! 😉 The cardstock is pieced, sentiment die cut then inlaid. The panel is scored, forward and backward, and then stitched, matted, and adhered to a navy card base.

Made it, put it in the box, and mailed. Hence, I send a BIG Thank You to Stacy at PC&S for taking the time to photo this and send to me. Again furthering my admiration of this publication and all the great people who make it happen. 🙂 Thank You!

Instead of these cards being in the fourth issue of 2015, they are coming to you today, the fourth of December. Kind of fitting, but still incredibly sad the April issue will not exist. But, let’s stay on the happy today, shall we? Yesterday’s post and hop about did me in! 😦

You can follow my blog and leave me a comment below (by December 10th) telling me what your favorite part of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine is. I’ll pick one random winner to send a little Lawn Fawn sparkly surprise & a few bits of paper crafting fun out to…so check back after the 10th to see if it’s YOU! 🙂

Hop on to Virginia’s blog next! Now she’s skilled–watch out!

Here’s the other WCMD winners–be sure to stop by and leave them a note! I know I can’t wait to see their winning cards and do so myself! One of the biggest perks of this win: Getting to know these crafty ladies! 🙂

    what a beautiful card!!!!! congrats on your win.
    I just love that PC&S are incredibly supportive of crafters in the industry. I’ve heard only good things about them and am sad that I am so late to crafting and won’t get any chance to submit to their awesome magazine :/

  2. What a wonderful card! I love the way you highlighted the negative of the thanks with those colored strips. Adds such a punch to your card. Congratulations on being a Winner! 🙂

  3. Miriam Prantner says:

    I love it! It’s so you! Love the colors you chose for the strips, the scoring, the stitching. CAS but lots and lots of interest. Sad that this isn’t being officially published as it’s so deserving!

    Great looking card, love
    the colored paper behind
    the cut. I loved everything
    about this magazine, wonderful
    tutorials and pictures.

  5. Oh yes, that inlaid die cutting is the best!!!! Congrats on your win, this card is so clean and beautiful!!! My favorite things about PC&S were the wonderful people that were SO SO helpful, even just to fans.. ( I never submitted ). They were approachable and always happy to help and encourage everyone. When the magazine was in print, I just loved flipping through page after page of beautiful cards, and Gallery Idol and Stamping Royalty were something to dream about.. So sorry to see this part of the industry leave us, but I hope everyone sticks together and continues supporting each other 🙂

  6. Congrats on your win! Love the card! Just started following you via Bloglovin! As for Paper Crafts, I always loved the trendy features and will miss them tremendously.

    Cute card, Jill, and congrats on your WCMD win! Tried to buy the Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks die but it was sold out ~ love that font. Great design and so colorful. Stitching and scored lines finish it off nicely. Thoroughly enjoyed PC & S and all they’ve done for the papercrafting community online and through their publications + all their awesome giveaways. Will miss all of it.

  9. Margaret says:

    CONGRATULATIONS on being a WINNER Jill!!!
    FABULOUS card, LOVE the POP of color in your “thanks” 🙂
    Sad that you will not be published, PC&S is a wonderful source of CREATIVE INSPIRATION!!!

  12. Plain and simple and so pretty. Love the colors in the thanks.
    Sorry you won’t be published but this hop will be a great way for people to see your card.
    thanks for sharing.

  13. What an awesome and striking card and design. Congrats. My favorite part of the magazine for me is first seeing who is published and second new trends. Well… all of it. Sure will miss it.

  14. Beatrice Lawson says:

    Congrats on wining with this stunner. What a fab technique, I saw it done and never gave it a try, now I will. My fave part was the special issues, I collected all of them, and they helped me learn about new products, techniques, trends and folks to watch. After CK closing, now this. Super sad.

  15. Hey there Jill! I am SO late hopping through these cards, but I have loved them all just the same! Great, great card (as always) I LOVE that you won! It is well deserved!! Take care my crafty friend 😉
