Published!

Hello! I'm so excited that I got a card I submitted published in Card Maker Magazine. This is my first time and it is quite a thrill. I love Card Maker. Their photos are so beautifully done and they include so many details for each project.There are several projects in this issue using GKD stamps, including three with images from Fanciful Fall! It is truly a gorgeous magazine packed full of fabulous projects for fall.

Here is a peek at my card on page 60. I used the tree from The Giving Tree and bats and sentiment from Boo!  

How would you like to win a copy of this issue of Card Maker along with The Giving Tree stamp set? Just leave me a comment on this post and I'll draw a random winner on Monday. Even if you already have The Giving Tree in your collection, go ahead and enter. You can give it to a friend, or we can figure out another of my sets to send you.

 Here is a look at the inside of the card, which didn't get shown in the magazine. The pumpkin and sentiment are from Fanciful Fall.

Be sure to check out some fabulous projects from some of my friends also in this issue, Vicki Dutcher, Patti J, Melanie Muenchinger, Jennie Harper, Tami Mayberry, Collleen Schaan and Michelle Woerrner.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a great day!
