Oh yeah baby, it's true! I was told by a lovely blog reader from Ireland that she saw the Spring UK issue of CARDS Magazine and my card was on the cover!!!! Wha...???
Here it is:
Here it is:
Uuuuhhh, can you say SHOCK and EXCITEMENT! I love that card! It uses Verve's Petals and Stems for the stems, Bountiful Backgrounds for the embossed dotted pieces and Fluttering By for the sentiment. I'll say it again, I love this card!!
When I told my mom, she CRIED! Yes, she actually cried out of sheer joy and pride for her daughter. Just made my heart melt. This is my first cover and quite the occasion for my family!
And now I have a PLEA for any international readers I have in the UK. Believe it or not, I can't buy this magazine ANYWHERE here in the states and I CAN'T find it online. Evidently it's some kind of a special edition. UGH! I even tasked my BFF from Australia, Kathy, to try to find it. But evidently, her area only carries the US versions of CARDS. Not too mention it's FALL there, not SPRING!! LOL!
UPDATE: A lovely blog reader contacted the Editor of the International CARDS division, who in turn contacted me! I have 3 wonderful issues of this magazine on their way to me now!! WOW! I am in constant awe of all you wonderful crafters out there! A HUGE thank you to Jean!
I simply must give a framed copy to my mom. Just HAVE to, kwim?
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day everyone!!
