Someone PINCH me!!

Happy St. Paddy's Day, Friends!!

Pinch me PLEASE!!  I feel like I'm living in a dream right now!!  I just got another HAPPY EMAIL from Susan Opel at Paper Crafts Magazine for another one of my cards!!!  The one they chose (sorry, I can't share it with you until September!) will appear in the September/October issue of Paper Crafts Magazine.  Are you KIDDING ME?!!  Needless to say, I am beside myself with happiness and glee.  I know I'm lucky because the odds were totally against me - there were 925 submissions and 338 of them were for Halloween (the only category that I submitted for), to fill 80 spots in the issue.  There were 66 designers and 11 brand newbies chosen, so I seriously did NOT expect to get an email today.  But let me tell you, I am one happy leprechaun for sure!!


Okay, I think I've gushed enough for one day.  Thank you for indulging me.  Before I go, there's a really fun lady who is once again hosting a Reject Blog Hop.  Dr. Amber of Damask Love is the hostess with the mostess.  Check out all the fabulous rejects HERE.  I'm happily including my reject from this call.  I've submitted this puppy to death and no one has picked it up, so I think I'll put a fork in it.  I personally thought it was stinkin' cute, especially since it uses the bat from Paper Smooches' Falling For You set.  This is actually version 2 of one that I created for a CARDS Magazine call that was REJECTED, too!  LOL  But I'm okay with it . . . really, I am!

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day!  I've been creating like a fiend, so I've got lots of goodies to share with you all very soon!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
