My First Publication!!!


Well I am so happy to announce that I finally have a card that has been published in a paper crafting Magazine!  I can't say that I submit as much as I should, but I am going to be making that more of a focus for this coming year.


If you haven't gotten this issue of Card Creations 8 yet by PaperCrafts Magazine, I totally recommend it.  It is filled front to back with lots of very inspiring cards!!



Here is the card of mine that they chose to use.  It uses the adorable PEAS on Earth image from Whimsie Doodles.  You can find it on page 99 of the magazine!  It was so exciting to see my name in print!!  I can't tell you how thrilled I was when I heard too!!  


I paper pieced the word EARTH and then colored the Peas in with my Copic markers!  The DP is some DCWV that I had on hand that could easily be replaced with similar dotted or striped papers!  The ribbon is from American Crafts!

While I am sharing a WD creation with you, I guess it is a good time to mention that I have resigned a little early from the Whimsie Doodles DT. Melyssa was gracious enough to let me end my term a month or so early so I could deal with everything going on right now.  I really appreciate her understanding and can't thank her enough for being one of the first Stamp Companies to trust me and allow me to represent them!  I just love WD images and will still be using them a lot.  So just because I am not on the DT anymore, you can still be sure that you will see more WD creations on my blog and in the galleries!!

I hope the rest of your weekend is relaxing and enjoyable! I have a little more scrap room organizing to go and then I plan to mess it all up again by making some more card creations today!!  Have a wonderful day and may your bucket overflow with health and happiness!!
