Hey there, blog friends! Today I'm SO EXCITED to be participating in the Paper Crafts Magazine World Card Making Day Winners Blog Hop! WOOHOO!!!

If not, no worries, just head on over to the Paper Crafts Connection Blog to start at the beginning! There are FABULOUS prizes to be won, so be sure to visit each participant's blog!!!

For today's hop we were asked to create a new card that fits within the category in which we were chosen as a winner. For me, that was the "Love" category. Here's my brand new "Love" creation:


I paper pieced the hearts with texty patterned paper and then used a pink marker to highlight some of the LOVE-related words. Here's a closer look:


Paper Crafts Magazine has generously offered to let me give away a copy of the March/April 2012 issue! In addition, I've decided to share some of the goodies from my WCMD prize package!!!
