Long time no see! I haven't been online a whole lot lately, so I have quite a bit of catching up to do! Today I'd like to share one of my cards that appears in the new issue of Paper Crafts magazine, the May/June 2011 issue!
I'm especially jazzed to share this card because I'd say it's on my top 20 list of favourite cards I've made! I submitted it to a previous call -- I think it must've been Card Creations: Favorite Occasions, Vol. 2 -- and when it wasn't selected for that, I think you could actually hear my heart getting CRUSHED. Ah ha...ha. ;o) So I'm really thrilled that it got a chance to appear in this issue! That grey polka dotted/red patterned paper from October Afternoon...love! And I think the chipboard scissors are pretty cute, too. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's Just My Type stamp set!
And monster thanks to Kerri for posting my Sew Happy Card in yesterday's post on the Paper Crafts Connection blog! I started squealing when I saw it!! I have a real soft spot for that card, too, because I'm sure you can guess who inspired the sentiment! :o) Sew Happy also appeared in the March/April 2011 issue as a preview for the May/June issue -- that's the first time that's happened! I'm such a dork because I actually yelped when I saw it. Ah hee hee! :o) As you can tell, I'm easily excited by any crafty-related things. And if you have the May/June issue, check out p. 83 for the July/August issue preview! ;o)
A couple of my May/June projects are online bonus projects -- click here for my Beautiful Bouquet Card [the card formerly known as Mother's Day Bouquet] and here for my Sew How's Things Card! It's not obvious from the Sew How's Things picture, but the polka dot background is fabric paper, and the dress form is a fabric-covered chipboard sticker. Also, feel free to laugh at my funny-lookin' hand drawn stems on the Beautiful Bouquet Card -- I've already laughed at myself plenty. ;o) HA!
Thanks for dropping by today!!
