Thanks for Everything!

Hi Peeps!
Thanks for Everything

Happy Thursday!  I intended to be back sooner than today, but life just got in the way.  I’ve been crafting, but most of it I can’t share with you just yet.  I do have a card that I made last night for the CARDS Magazine/CREATE Blog Challenge, which is to create a project using the handmade paper flowers that are all the rage right now.  They require a lot of fussing, which is something I try not to spend time doing these days.  But I think they turned out pretty cute, so it was worth all the fussing.  Not sure how I'd ever mail this thing . . . LOL!

STAMPS:  Mehndi Medallions (W Plus 9 Design)
INK:  Tuxedo Black (Memento)
PAPER:  Kraft CS (Papertrey Ink), Clothesline DSP (Little Yellow Bicycle)
ACCESSORIES:  Flatback Pearls (Melissa Francis), Pink Baker’s Twine (Devine Twine), Cotton Lace (JoAnn’s), Janome Sew Mini, Corner Rounder (EK Success), Flower Die (Sizzix), Glue Dots, Sticky Strip

I have a fun little secret to share with you all . . . I submitted four cards to CARDS Magazine for the January, 2011 issue, and THREE cards were picked up!!  Shut the Front Door!!  LOL  Just had to tell you all - don't tell anyone though, okay?!  LOL

That’s all for me today!  I hope you enjoy your day – thanks for stopping by!

Who would be surprised that three of your cards got picked up for "pub"...certainly not me! Congrats, my friend, no one deserves it more than you! This one is those flowers. It must have been somewhat painful for you...knowing your love for them and all, lol!

BTW, would that fit in an envelope?!

Love lookin' at your stuff, keep up the beautiful work~

What magazine wouldn't pick your cards? They are adorable and have such a great style! Congrats on getting picked up and I know that fussing takes a long time, but those flowers turned out GREAT!
