What's New?


I got my March/April issue of Paper Crafts magazine yesterday, and am so excited to see my card on page 37!  And today was the day they sent out email acceptances for the upcoming Stamp It! issue...and I was one of them.  :o)  That's happy news, for sure.  I sent in a whopping 23 submissions, but they only picked one.  Hey, I consider myself lucky to at least be in there.  Thanks, Paper Crafts!

I've got a fun card to share with you right now:


I love how all the text comes together:  the tiny print on the Poppy Parade patterned paper, the large ABC's in the circle, and the sentiment.


Challenges entered:


Thanks for coming by!  I really appreciate your visit.  :o)

I saw your card in my issue that came yesterday! Great job! Now, you have one more coming out - great job! Can't wait to see it. Do we get to see all the others that weren't picked? What do they know or did they just not want a dedicated Colleen issue!?!?! Anyway, I am impressed with your talent. I showed Henry, the basset, your card in the magazine and then pointed to the card you sent me and told him you made both! He gave it a long happy tail wag! Congrats again.

Congrats on another publication, Colleen! You're doing great! Hey, 23 submissions... it takes a lot sometimes. You were having fun, though, I'll bet. Now, today's card is full of color and cheer. I don't have Poppy Parade, but you're making me think I might need it. I really love it with the Peach Parfait ribbon. Super cute card!

Congratulations on your card being chosen, it must be a lovely feeling. Do you actually have to send the cards off or just photos of them? I think you should just print your own magazine with so many great card designs!
