Hi, Friends.....

I am here to share an out-of-this-world card I made for the big Winnie & Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash celebration over on their blog!!! Not only do they have a GIGANTIC giveaway, but they have 10 different challenges that you can play along with.....including a chance at a big Guest Star slot, if you participate with at least 4 different cards starring their products!! (See their blog post for details on that.) Winnie & Walter challenges are among my favorites anywhere in the papercrafting blogosphere. There are only a couple more days left, so I hope you will join me soon in wishing Shay and everyone at W&W a Happy 3rd Birthday and play along with the challenges!!!

The sentiment is a little hard to read in the photo.  It says "You are not alone."

Has anyone besides me noticed all the fabulous galaxy backgrounds crafters have been making the last few days inspired by the Unity Stamp Co. Galaxy Background Quick Tip video? I realize that many of you have been making these for a long time, but I have only tried it a few times and have never really been satisfied with my results...until now! :) Thank you, Unity!!

Do you like my sweet doggy and kitty pair? These are from the brand-new Winnie & Walter - Big Hugs with Evelin T Designs stamp set and cut out with the corresponding Winnie & Walter - Big Hugs with Evelin T Designs die set. ADORABLE!!!  (THANKS, W&W!!) I used a Unity sentiment to go with the little friends.

Other supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set (large pierced rectangle and sentiment banner)
W plus 9 - Tree Border die set
Distress Ink: Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick, Faded Jeans, Wilted Violet, Black Soot
Simon Says Stamp - Soft Navy Ink
Simon Says Stamp - Soft Navy 100# Cardstock Versamark ink
Clear embossing powder
Spectrum Noir markers

I really love how this card turned out and I hope you like it, too!!! Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your nice comments! They mean a lot to me!! There are only a couple more days left of my Virtual Birthday Party and also over at the Winnie & Walter - 3rd Birthday Bash celebration be sure to hurry so you don't miss out!!  Have a nice rest of the weekend!!!
