Nov 2010 CARDS Publication

Hey!

It's still snowy here and I'm stuck inside, but I'm not complaining. I've never had so much inky therapy time during what should be a working week!

Today I'm not sharing a card I made during my bonus inky sessions, but a card that has become very dear to me (even though it's not with me now). My first published card - ever! Yup, that's right, I can now share my very first publication from the Nov 2010 issue of CARDS (check it out on page 49!) Thanks CARDS Magazine!


And because my photography is pretty pants in comparison to the magazine's, just check out how sweet the set up was for it:


Could you find a more perfect home for this card?! :)

And by total, freaky, pure, coincidence - do you know what came through the post today? A copy of the magazine itself! Thanks so much to my super sweet Canadian buddy, Maureen (or Diva as I like to call her after her Verve Guest Diva fame!) - you're a star (and a Diva!)!!! It was a total surprise and I still can't stop stroking the glossy pages :D

Thanks so much for stopping by! Now I've got to figure how I'm going to get to the post office to post some cards in time for Christmas....wish me luck!

Catch ya later!
