Recent Pub cards...

I got up the nerve to send in a couple cards for the last couple Paper Crafts calls.  I don't' know why I have such a hard time doing it, but I just don't do it that often!  I did send in one card for Card Creations Volume 10 call and I was so excited to get that acceptance email!  Here is my card...

And this card is in the July/August PC Mag...

This card was so easy!  I don't use stickers that often, but I found these in some of the goodies from the Stamping Royalty prize and I had to use them!  

That's all I have for today!  Off to spend time the hubs for Father's Day!  It's another pool day for sure!  Hope you are all enjoying your day too!  Thanks for coming by!

Looove the first card. Such a classic colour combo and what a great layout and use of the EF. Fun, bright second card that makes me want to go to Hawaii LOL! Liking the new avatar photo too :)

I don't know why you have a hard time doing it, either. Snap out of it! Your designs and your cards are always so delightful and so well-executed. Whether you submit them or not, you are definitely an inspiration to lots of peeps on the Intertube!! I love both cards, but especially the CAS embossed white with roses. Yum.

Suzanne said...

CONGRATS, Laurie!!!! I am so happy for you and think you should be submitting all of the time. The cards are AWESOME and so "you"!!

LOVE your new photo up in the top corner. You look so beautiful! I love your hair and the color of your shirt is perfect and the cute necklace! So very pretty!

Lisa said...

Ooooo big congrats Laurie!! What a cute new picture of you too, did you get a new do!?!

Kim said...

Both of your cards are great, but that first one is so elegant with the white embossed piece and that ribbon and flowers, would be perfect for a wedding card too. So stunning.

Congratulations Laurie on your recent pubs. You really should do it more often as I find your cards simply beautiful! Especially love the first one. So elegant.

Kathy said...

Seriously, Laurie-I have never submitted anything for publication and never would just because of those feelings but you, Girl, rock! Your work is so very worthy of publishing I wish I could help you realize that!! Still a humble heart is what the Lord desires of us and your humility is awesome!! Gorgeous cards:)

Beautiful cards! I really love the look of the embossing on your first card. Which embossing folder did you use? I would love to try and source it if you are able to remember the name of it? Many thanks Angie
