Did you hear that?

Yeah that was me. I am screaming with joy! All the way from Kansas. Why you ask?

Well, I wake up Monday, get on the computer and see THIS!  I was chosen for Paper Crafts Magazine March gallery contest!  Yeah Monday!

Now it's Tuesday and I get to share THIS!

Yep...Yeah Tuesday, too!!  I am over the moon excited and had to stop in and share that one of my Thank you cards won an amazing contest called Stamping Royalty!!!  {Jumping up and down here!}  I am still a little in shock and can't believe its true! It will be published in the Nov/Dec issue of PC mag!  Thank you SO much to my favorite magazine, Paper Crafts!  So far they have made my Monday and Tuesday!  I am thinking the rest of the week is going to be amazing!  But today is the highlight for sure!!

Just wanted to share something crafty and CAS too!  Here is a quick card I whipped up!  I got this super cute sentiment at Michael's!  It is from the Ditto line of Studio G stamps!  I thought it was kinda fun!
