Happy World Card Making Day - A Card AND a Giveaway!

Hello and happy World Card Making Day. :)
I thought I'd celebrate today with a new card and a giveaway of some yummy products I bought but never quite got round to using... shame on me. (Blame Lily for being too cute and taking up all my time!) :)
But first, a card in celebration of this happy holiday. This card is made with more of the yummy Simon Says Stamp Stamptember releases. The Small Forest Tree die is adorable - so delicate, and the heart die is going to be one of my most useful new finds - love that it has stars too. :) That pretty sentiment is from The Handwritten Sentiments set designed by the fab Kristina Werner (isn't she just too amazing...) The script background is Hero Arts Tapestry Background, it coordinates with the pink paper from the Kissing Booth pad by Basic Grey. Oh, and I used Wet Cement ink to stamp that background - it looks awesome on kraft. The other papers are from the October Card kit exclusive 6 x 6 pad.

I added Glossy Accents to the hearts too for some shine.

And now... on to the giveway...
All these products are delicious, unopened and just waiting to be played with. 
Here is the package:
GIVEAWAY CLOSED
DSC06784
Package comprises of:
Lawn Fawn 'On the Mend' Stamps
Paper Smooches 'My Peeps' Stamps
Studio Calico Mistable Feather Stickers
Pebbles Masking Tape Stickers
American Crafts Alphabet Stickers
My Mind's Eye Kraft Circle Garland
A roll of blue decorative tape
A handful of Papertrey Ink buttons
You likey?
Leave a comment here by next Saturday 13th October and be in with a chance of winning the lot. I will mail anywhere in the world. It is WORLD Card Making Day after all! I will announce the winners on the 14th October.
So... what are your plans today?
I'll have to wait until Lily's in bed before I can get crafty... seriously, she is in to EVERYTHING right now. :)
Have a very happy day.

I have to go out and get some grocery shopping done, but I'm going to do that early! I hate shopping LOL I also have to get my youngest black dress shoes and a white shirt for her chorus concert on Tuesday. Other than those errands that have to be done, I will be sitting at my desk getting some cards made :) I have some colored images that are just waiting for me to make into cards. Hopefully I will get something done today!

HI Lucy,
I discovered you recently and have been a fan ever since.. You are so creative and I so love the cards you do.
I got interested in card making like last year and love it so much.

I live in Sri Lanka so it's very difficult to get hold of materials.
We dont even have a scrapbooking store :) so would really like this kit.
Thanks so much for your inspirations.
Take Care
