Anyone you know?

papercraftsjuly

TGIF friends!!!  I finally have my copy of the July/August 2011 Papercrafts magazine!!  I have had a few real thrills in my card making career…being published, becoming a Verve Diva, being a Guest Designer for challenges, but this one is kind of special.  Some of you know that I won the Colour Inspiration Challenge over on the Moxie Fab World in February for my little card that could :)  I say that because I couldn’t photograph it properly.  I received the Cricut, Gypsy and cartridges about a month ago, but I was really waiting for this issue to come out.  It’s the first time my picture has appeared along side my card.  I like to say that I was “published without submitting!”  lol  Another funny little thing about this card is that I made it on a weekend and really wanted purple thread for the stitching, but it was late, I wanted to finish it, so I went for black thread.  Okay, onto today’s card…

You know the drill…it’s Friday, it’s the weekend and there’s a new Viva La Verve challenge up and ready to inspire.  Diva Sankari brings us a fresh, new sketch that is sure to stir up some creativity!!  I knew I wanted to go shabby on this one just because of all the panels.  The butterfly is made of two layers, the bottom is from a  corrugated SB sleeve and the top is made of vellum cardstock crumpled up.  Well, that’s it from me…thanks for stopping by and for all your sweet comments!!  Enjoy your Friday and weekend :)

Awwww.... Look at you!!! Wonderful celebration and happy for you!! Maybe DH needs to take you out somewhere special for a celebration!!! Love the card, colors are wonderful and the butterfly with 'crackled' looking vellum is cool!!! Now, your ribbon holder looks like it holds a lot more than my wooden one... Are those metal rods of some type???
