Oh Happy Day!...

This is a really special post for me because it means another of my crafting goals has been achieved! Last year, I was lucky enough to be published for the first time in PaperCrafts Magazine and I promised myself that I would try really hard to see if I could be a "multiple-card designer" in a single issue. Well, the just-out Card Ideas for Paper Crafters has SIX of my designs! I've been waiting and waiting for the issue to go on sale and it is on newsstands now (or you can head HERE to buy online!)
The card I'm showing today appears on page 54 and is based on the awesome sketch by Ryann Soloman. I used my fave Garden Party Critters set from Taylored 
Expressions and I am just over the moon that it was published (as a stand-alone, too!) Thank you, PaperCrafts, for choosing my designs -- I'm so proud to be among the other wonderful designers in this fabulous special issue!

This card is just adorable. The colors and so cool looking and the little bees are too sweet! HUGS. PS: I've been in and out of blogland this summer, but I do check in even if I don't always comment. I'm soooo far behind on that and don't even know why.
