Lots to talk about today so this post is gonna be quick and to the point.
First, meet today’s card.
The patterned papers are from My Mind’s Eye and American Crafts. The Happy Birthday circle is a diecut from Elle’s Studio. The gems are from my stash, and the gold borders are Paper Frills diecuts from Doodlebug.
Second, how about a winner for my 12-5 give-away?
Picking at random…. now.
That winner is:
OK, I’ll throw my hat into the ring. Thanks for the chance to win!
The card is lovely, as usual! I’ve not seen that PTI set.
Congrats Cynthia! I’ll send you an email shortly for your snail mail address so I can get your prize out.
Third, I have a little encouragement for all of you. Yes, all of all you.
The deadline for submissions for Paper Crafts magazine’s annual Card Creations special issue is fast-approaching. It strikes on Monday (the 14th) at midnight (Mountain time).
I would love to open up the magazine next year and be blown away by your cards. I know there are some amazing card makers who check out my blog once-in-awhile.
Even if you’ve never been published before, consider giving it a shot. You just might submit the card that launches a lofty publications resume.
Even if you have been published and but haven’t had much luck lately, give it a whirl again. Been there. Totally can relate.
Go here for submission info.
Please note for this call only that the editors are asking that work be fresh and previously unseen (that includes appearing on your blogs). Again, that’s for this call only.
If you have questions, please ask. If I don’t know, I can track down someone who does.
And, finally, have you been to my pal Jess’ blog today? She’s got a mean packet of Papertrey Ink blog candy up for grabs. Go check her out, read her news and leave her a comment. Click here and you’ll get right to her blog. I know she’d love to hear from you.
