Beautiful To Me and a Giveaway!!

TGIF right?  So excited for the weekend!  We don't have anything planned FINALLY and it will be nice to hang out and try to get some stuff done! 

So, I am here today with my first ever published card from Paper Crafts Magazine!  I was so excited when I sent in this card at the last minute and got an email 2 days later!

This card was the first time I used a doily on a card!  Such a fun look!  The "Beautiful to Me" card is from My Minds Eye!  When I found them at an LSS in Wichita, I had to stock up!  The rose is handmade using the Marvy flower punches!  So easy to make!

So in honor of my first published card, I have decided to give away an issue of Paper Crafts Magazine!  All you have to do is follow my blog or become a follower!  Leave a comment before Wednesday, December 22nd at 11:59 CST.  I will announce the winner on Christmas Eve morning!


Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great Friday!
