Merry Monday #138 + Simon Says Bling & WCMD prize winner

Today just did not go as expected, and I am much later than I planned posting the winner of my World Card Making Day 2014 Winner Blog Hop prize.

I want to give a huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone that commented on the Blog Hop post and welcome those that have starting following my blog. And now to the prize winner! My Random Number Generator picked post 17, which is Kathy Mc.

Following you also, Jacquie!

Congratulations, Kathy! I will be in touch with you regarding delivery of the Altenew Gift Certificate and prize box.

I can't post without including a card and every year, when I think I'm done with Christmas cards, Stefan will ask me for 2 or 3 or 10 to use at work. I decided to use Merry Monday Challenge #138 and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge to Bling It On to inspire this card since I had a silver glitter paper wreath sitting in my die cut pile.

After using gold glitter thread to tie the joy sentiment circle to the wreath, it is adhered to a scalloped vellum circle on then onto an embossed panel.

Before I go today, I have to caution you about leaving half finished craft projects where you husband might feel inspired to do something with them. A long while back I bought the letters to make my own version of the Pottery Barn Noel sign but things didn't go the way I'd hoped and the project was abandoned. The other day I found this waiting for me in the garage.

Not quite what I had envisioned :)

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. Thank you, Jacquie! I've been so busy mass producing Christmas cards I haven't been reading blogs. Got your awesome email though so will email you back now. I'm SO excited. Love your "Joy" card - so sparkly. Your DH had good intentions...just not the same as yours. Gotta love him for trying to help out. : )

  2. Hehe! Yes he tried!

    The NOEL sign looks wonderful ~ but you need to take it out of the garage and put it on display ;-)
