Happy National Scrapbook Day (& Giveaway!)

**THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED FOR COMMENTS. A winner will be picked tomorrow and posted on the blog. Thank you for visiting!


Happy National Scrapbook Day! I plan on getting a LOT of scrapbooking done today! The past couple of years, I have worked when this little holiday rolled around and this month I discovered this happy little coincidence that I managed to be off this go around! Lots of places around the web are hosting challenges, make & takes, etc...I hope you find a place to "sit back" and get your scrap on! 

I whipped up this cute little card last night using some Lawn Fawn goodies and some Bazzill card stock. 



 To make this little card, cut a block of Robin's Egg card stock to 10" x 7" and fold in half. Cut a block of Kraft Chevron paper and a block of the flower pattern paper and stitch down using your sewing machine. Trace out a tag onto the Rock Candy card stock and cut it out. Emboss your sentiment using the "Many Thanks" stamp set; cluster a group of embellishments, add a string to your tag, adhere with foam dots and waaa-laa!


...And now for the giveaway! Bazzill has very generously sent me two packages of their new Card Shoppe Cardstock! One for me and one for me to giveaway! (I'll probably add some other goodies to the prize package as well :-) Just leave a comment on this post by Sunday, May 6th by 8:00 CST and I'll choose a winner on Monday, May 7th!


ETA: Here's a few of the goodies that will also be included in the giveaway :-)
