Exciting News!

I know some of you have already seen this issue of PaperCrafts Magazine, but I just got my copy over the weekend! Back in October, I decided to submit two of my cards for the World Cardmaking Day Contest and was lucky enough to have one of them picked up! : )


There is my little Gingerbread Boy card! I used my Cricut to cut his body out and added Dazzling Diamonds to his body. His eyes are brads, and his mouth was stitched with black floss. The sentiment was done with the JustRite set called, Favorite Occasions Borders and Centers. I colored the mini gingerbread boy with Copics.






The circles were cut out with Spellbinder's dies and then airbrushed. I tied everything together with ribbon and twine.


Thanks for allowing me to share my excitement with you! Have a great start to your week!

so funny, I know this is an older post but I actually have been hoarding my copy of that mag until I had time to REALLY go through it without folks bugging me..which was THIS week if u can believe and YOUR card was my favorite and then to find your blog accidentally (hopped from elsewhere) was quite funny! Loved it!
