Giveaway for World Wide Crafting Day - Using my Stash

Morning my friends, I hope you are well...I have 5 grandchildren here this weekend, but I quickly wanted to share the card I made yesterday - for a Facebook challenge - Use your Stash, and World Wide Crafting Day.

I know we all have papers that get stroked and put away, and never cut into, come on hands up, who has them?

I joined a 10 day challenge - Use your Stash, the 1st challenge was to use 2 Patterned Papers, 2 types of Embellishments that you have oodles of, and a Border, either Punched, Ribbon, Twine etc.

So my much loved Anna Griffin papers got their 1st cut, so I imagine, this card will stay with me. LOL.

Here is my Card:-

Anna Griffin Papers - From Stash
Little Claire's - Irresistible Images - Floral
Lace, Pearls and Flowers from Stash

I hope you like my card.  To celebrate World Wide Crafting Day, I have a giveaway - I ended up with 2 of the new Little Claire's Magazine - Issue 1, so I will give it to One commenter on my blog today.

There is a free Christmas Dinkie with the Magazine.

Can I ask that if anyone, already as the Magazine, can they leave, "I have it" after your comment. Thank you and good luck!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper - Anything Goes with patterned paper
Crafting with Dragonflies CH#44 - Anything Goes must be a Card
Crafter's Delight - CH#49 - Anything Goes
Creative Craft Cottage - CH#48 - Anything Goes

Have a wonderful day my friends and thank you for visiting.
