A Thank You Card and EXCITING NEWS for Me!

Wow! Today has been a good day! I need to thank all my friends who have been sending lots of prayers and positive thoughts my direction! I met one of my crafty goals for this year, to be published! One of my cards has been accepted into CARDS magazine, you can see their amazing blog HERE! Also, I will be teaching card classes at a local scrapbook store, Scrap-N-Stamp.

I made another card using Basic Grey. A thank you card using Unity's Simply Said. I stamped my Kraft paper with Versamark ink and the Distressed Dots background stamp. Then I covered it with May Arts ribbon and tied some twine so you could get a little peek-a-boo action. The larger die cut is Nestie's Label 1 and the smaller ones are Label 8.

Also, you HAVE to check out this awesome BLOG CANDY on Winnie's blog. You can see the details HERE.
