For this project I used paper and accessories from a Close to My Heart kit that I got at the last gathering we had. The Miracle Scrapbooking Kit is meant for making a scrapbook page, but so far I've used it for a card and this project. The sentiment and other stamps are from Stampin' Up, "Full of Life" and the "Priceless" series.

EDIT! July 17th is way too long, what was I thinking!? The new draw date is July 10th. Please tell your friends, I'd love to see some more entrants!
Good luck and thank you for the support!!

My WoW Themed Cards were featured on WoW.com for their boomkiny awesomeness!
So this makes me think... I'm starting to hit the big leagues! I'm no where near some of these fantastic paper crafters who have hundreds of followers and do tutorials and have huge stores. But I'd like to be! I'm working toward becoming a demonstrator/consultant for one of the many wonderful paper crafts companies that have sucked me in (willingly and gleefully)... so now I guess it's time to work increasing my "presence" on the web.
How should I do this you say? Well... by a give-away of course! That's what all the bloggers are doing now adays! Blog Candy I think it's called yes? I shall contemplate what it is I can give-away and make a post in the near future. Keep watching! And thank you for all the awesome feedback!!

I used the stamp sets "Around the Block" and "Flower Pot" both from Close to My Heart. The ink and paper is from Stampin' Up, Not Quite Navy, Rose Red, Creamy Caramel and Boredering Blue!
To create the whale I cut a rectangle and used the corner rounder, then just manually cut the back end and hand drew the face and flipper.
The inside of the card reads: "Thinking of you... please know that I care." and is from Stampin Ups "Thoughts & Prayers" stamp set.
Edit to add a YouTube link with a relevant clip from the movie which is based on the book.

The inside of this notecard is blank so it can be used for any occassion. This isn't a card I can mass produce though, I purchased the chipboard and found only one cog in the bunch that was big enough. I used gold embossing powder to decorate the cog and then printed the caption on white cardstock (unfortunately the only cardstock I have that's thin enough for my printer!).

In World of Warcraft there is a character you can play called a Druid who has the ability to shapeshift into various animal forms, including the made up creature moonkin which is sort of a cross between a bear and an owl. Alliance and Horde have different moonkin appearance, so I've done two cards. The one above is the horde version.
