Happy World Card Making Day & A Giveaway

Hi all my crafty friends!  Hope you had a terrific WCMD Weekend!  I've been a busy girl making cards today and enjoying the cool weather.  Got several cards to share, are you ready???

Up first is this week's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge 31:


And CAS-ual Fridays #22:


Here's my card:


I just love this card, it is so bright and cheerful.  I used Authentique Patterned Paper and Tag.  I also used Cosmo Cricket Patterned Paper and Crate Paper Button.  I looped grey yarn around a piece of felt - so easy!

Up next is a creepy creation I made for Cards Blog this week.  I'm also entering it in the following challenges:


I used Martha Stewart treat bags and die cut.  My clothes pin and small tag are from Etsy.  Ribbon is Really Reasonable Ribbon and stamps are Papertrey Ink.  Love the vampire theme...and speaking of vampires - who has their tickets for Breaking Dawn???  I do, yippee!!!

Next is a card for the Moxie Fab World - Card Play Challenge.   I also used the colors from The Play Date Cafe Challenge 101:


Here's my card:


I thought a "card" theme was the perfect chance at a masculine card!  This card is made up of PTI and K & Co.  My button is Crate Paper and I used Stickles.  My patterned paper was a scrap, not sure which company it belongs to - but it was perfect and I had to use it!!! 

OK, now this week's CardPatterns Sketch 135:


And my card:


This card features more Authentique Patterned Paper and Tags plus yarn.  Yarn's about the easiest and cheapest thing you could ever add to a card and it looks good!  Win win situation!

Now take a look at this little guy:

This fellow - Hootie - is a finalist in the WCMD contest at Practical Scrappers.  All you have to do is click on this link to vote for my card.  This little guy will love you forever if you vote for him!  And if you're looking for an owl of your own, visit Amy Mattes Designs to see where this adorable clipart can be purchased.

In honor of WCMD weekend I want to do a giveaway.  All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and give me a shout out on your blog.  The winner will receive a box of goodies from me and maybe your very own Hootie the Owl!  I'll pick a winner next Saturday!

Thanks!!!!

Well, I don't have a blog but I'm glad I found yours! (I came via Craft Buds' giveaway round-up.) Since I've started quilting I've been seriously neglecting my card-making, but I'm inspired to give sketch 135 a try. thanks!
