I’ve been keeping a secret for quite a while now, and I can finally share it with you all! I was lucky enough to have two cards picked up for publication in what used to be called “Go To Sketches for Card Makers Two” and is now called “Card Ideas for Paper Crafters.” And as if that wasn’t thrilling enough (especially since it was my first time being published by Paper Crafts Magazine), I got a follow up email from Susan Opel, Creative Editor of Paper Crafts Magazine, indicating that one of the two cards they chose would be on the cover of the magazine. Are you kidding me?!! My card is the one on the bottom – yep, a cityscape! LOL You all know I loves me some cityscapes!! I don’t yet have a copy of that baby in my hot little hands, but I’m hoping it arrives any day now. Until then, I’ll be stalking my mail lady . . . she’d better watch out! LOL I believe that Card Ideas for Paper Crafters goes on sale in stores August 9th (in case you want to get a copy for yourself ) – woohoo!!
I also had a couple of cards published in July’s issue of CARDS Magazine as well as the CREATE: Stamping issue. The first two pics above were in CARDS, and the second two were in CREATE: Stamping. There’s nothing like seeing your work in print . . . takes my breath away every single time.
Thank you for letting me brag on myself a little bit. I hope the rest of this week continues to be great for y’all! I think summer has finally arrived here in Seattle, so that makes me happy. It’s Seafair Weekend – big tradition in Seattle! We’ll be celebrating at a friend’s lake house on Saturday, watching the rooster tails of the hydroplanes and oohing and ahhhing over the Blue Angels’ stunts. There’s nothing like Seafair in Seattle, especially when it’s sunny!! Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
