Paper Crafts, Here I Come!



Eeeeek!  Two of my four submissions to the Paper Crafts "Go-To Sketches For Card Makers" call were picked up!  This special issue will hit newsstands August 9, 2011.

I had never submitted anything for publication before and am AMAZED that I got picked up on my first try.  Still in happy shock, that's me.  :)  I spent ALL morning filling out the papers for Paper Crafts, and taking the time to write out the detailed supply lists and instructions.  I've boxed up my creations and am heading for the post office now!

I also want to take a moment to accept an award from a fellow blogger named Tara Bilbao, of Tara Bee Ink.  Thank you so much, Tara!  Check out some of my faves of her cards here and here.



The rules of accepting this award:I want to pass this on to:
1-Creating a post where I blog about the Liebster award & reveal my 3-5 blog picks
2-Let the honorees know that I selected them
3-Copy & paste the blog award on my blog

Danielle Therese Greenwood - Au Claire de Lune
Tammy Hobbs - Creating Somewhere Under the Sun
Julie Day - J. Day Designs


I will be back with a new card soon - promise!  I've also got to accept another award from two different ladies, but I'm running out of time today.  :)

Thanks for joining me -- I always appreciate your visits!

Colleen

(PS - Blogger is being goofy today, and I cannot get that green background out of my Liebster award badge!  I'm so sorry.  If you are accepting this badge from me today, check out my sidebar:  there is a Liebster badge there that looks 'normal')
