Blogaversary Celebration - Day Three!

Welcome to Day Three of Blogaversary

Today, I am so excited to be sponsored by CardMaker Magazine!
They have generously offered up three beautiful pattern books to be given away,
so today, there will be THREE winners!

Before I show you the prizes, let me first encourage you to submit your beautiful work for publication to CardMaker Magazine!  It takes time, but it's so rewarding to see a project of your own in a real life glossy publication!  And, don't give up, if you try, and are not accepted - I've had far more submissions turned down, than I have accepted.  Hang in there and keep trying.
Keep in mind that just because you're turned down, it doesn't mean that your work is not good enough.  Often, they are trying to complete a page with certain color schemes, or textures, and are looking for just the right project.

Here is one of my favorite items that I had published in an issue of CardMaker:

This card was created with Our Daily Bread Designs stamps.  It actually shared a corner of the cover with several other   cards - so, I am 'almost' a Cover Girl!  When that happens for reals, you will hear me celebrating, and I will probably be asked to leave the post office, as I'll be happy dancing, and that will not be a pretty sight!

On to today's giveaway!
Here's what's up for grabs:

So....did I peek?  OMG - YES I did!  What a wonderful resource, if you like cards that move, pop, and create smiles!

Squeeee!  I had to look at this one too!  I used to Cross-Stitch some pretty amazing pieces. I haven't done so in a while, but this fun project book got my wheels turning, and who knows?  I may pick up that Aida cloth again soon!  Look at the beautiful Autumn pattern - too gorgeous, right?

Although, I am not a quiller, this book has some stunning patterns for those of you who might be!  I've actually tried quilling, and I have the utmost respect for those of you who do it - what a beautiful art!

So.....how can you win one of these beautiful magazines?

Well....you have three chances again!

1.  Leave a comment here giving me a bit of 'bl'irthday love = 1 chance to win!
2.  Become a follower of the CardMaker blog, and leave a comment telling them that I sent you = 1 chance to win!
3. Go to the CardMaker Facebook Page, hit the 'LIKE' button, and leave a bit of love, telling them that I sent you = 1 chance to win!

That's it - easy peasy, right?

Thanks for stopping by today - BLirthdays are so much fun!
We're only halfway through our celebration, so be sure to tell all your friends to stop by!

See you Thursday for Day Four!

Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.
