Smile!


I've been smiling non-stop since last Friday afternoon when I got the email from Holly at Paper Crafts letting me know that one of my cards had been selected as a winner in the World Card Making Day contest. 

I won in the 'Love' category, and while it is a card that is really me and that I do love, I thought it was kind of a stretch for the category because the sentiment doesn't actually have the word love in it.

Anyway, I just want to say thank you to PC for picking my card - it will be published in the upcoming March issue, so you'll see it then. 

This card is also an encouragement for those whose beautiful cards weren't selected this year to smile and keep trying!  In fact, this card is a reject for the sketch from the latest call.  Not picked up, but I love it just the same.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!!!

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock:  Recollections - Black and Yellow Cardstock
Stamps:  Lawn Fawn - Milo's Alphas
Ink:  Memento - Tuxedo Black
Other:  Epiphany - Oval Tool; Lawn Fawn - A Birdie Told Me Dies; American Crafts - Black 05 Journaling Pen; Tombow - Mono Adhesive; CTMH - Dimensional Foam Tape
