what an awesome knock on the door!

I just got a special delivery of this fun:


It's the new special issue of Papercrafts Magazine, named Cards, Gifts & More - Papercrafting 3 Ways, and I have cards on page 25!! Whoo hoo! It's an awesome issue about stepping it up and changing it up, full of inspiration, and I am so proud to be a part of it :)

"There's Only One U" cards

1st version - pretty straight-forward


2nd version - add some bling with the shimmer flower and rhinestone and a glittery tab on the side


3rd version - now add some brads along the edge and some decorative stitching

I'm so excited, too, because I get a special dinner (or mocha sometimes) from my husband each time I get published! Whoo hoo for no cooking tonight!

One more day

to enter the drawing on the post below! I'll probably name winners around noon, my time. Thank you to everyone that is sending good wishes and congratulations. All of your words are so appreciated :)

I had my first chance yesterday to play with those CM Bountiful papers that I'm gifting (well, not the same - the winners will get unopened packs!). I love, love, love the prints! Very pretty and versatile. Here is a double-page layout that I made to send to an scs'er. She's gathering pages to donate to a little gal who is fighting cancer. Here is a link to the info if you'd like to donate as well. 8x8 pages are so quick to make, and I'm sure they will be very appreciated!
