Doing the Happy Dance and a Card!!

Hi Kids!

Smiley from
Just had to pop in to share some incredible news . . . oh my gosh, I can hardly say it out loud for fear that it won't be true.  Okay . . . here it goes.  Another one of my cards will be published in the September issue of CARDS Magazine!!  Holy Crap, Batman!!  I can't share the card with you here just yet because then you won't buy the magazine to see for yourself, right?!!  LOL  I am over the moon thrilled beyond belief and just had to share with all my stamping peeps.  Thanks for letting me dance like a fool!  Smiley from LOL

I also wanted to share a card today.  I made this for my mom's birthday, which was on April 1st (yes, she really was born on April Fool's Day!)  I used my fave Solid Zinnia (A Muse) stamp with Versamark and Powder Embossing Powder (Zing/American Crafts).  I feel like it's a really cool contrast with the Hawaiian Shores CS, accented with the Aqua Mist CS (both from Papertrey Ink).  I used my fave-a-lave Retro Diamonds (QuicKutz) embossing folder for dimension and, of course some pearls and Satin Polka Dot Ribbon.  Oh, and the Upper Crest border punch (Fiskars) - love it!  The sentiment is from an old SU set that is timeless (but I can't remember the name of it and am too lazy to go upstairs and look it up).  My mom really liked this card, but I seriously think I could smear some dog doo doo on some cardstock and she'd love it - she's a good mom. LOL

Thanks for stopping by today and for letting me share my good news!  I'll share pictures of the Diaper Cake that we made yesterday soon . . . probably on Sunday, after I've recovered from the baby shower!  LOL
