Exciting News! ( is to me)

I learned on Friday afternoon that one of my card designs (one you guys haven't seen yet) was selected for a special edition of Paper Crafts Magazine. I think the people in the car next to me in the parking lot at Safeway thought I was crazy when they heard me squealing when I read my email.

Keep your eyes peeled for the Go-To Sketches for Card Makers due out in August! For all you papercrafters out there, the concept is a very cool one. Paper Crafts Magazine posted a ton of sketches to choose from to base a card design on. If you're ever stuck on an idea, need to have some help getting started or just want to challenge yourself a bit, these sketches are perfect. I actually downloaded the PDF and saved it for myself to use when I need it. You should too. There are some interesting starts in there.

I can't wait to share with you my design. I hope to get so more things made so I can keep submitting them for publication. I have to tell you, it's a great feeling to know that there were 2700 cards submitted and only 288 picked! I think this might turn into an addiction (Oh no! Like it isn't one already.)

I spent a good part of the day on a birthday card for a friend and I hope it'll be done soon so I can share it. I promise step-by-step instructions to show you how I made it.

Have a great Sunday!
