I'M SO EXCITED...and I just can't hide it!

I know, I know....a real swing back to the 90's (or is it 80's) with that title reference. But I am really excited.

Wanna know why????

On Saturday I decied to submit the card that was posted below (now removed!) to Stamping & Papercraft magazine's readers gallery. And today I have arrived home from shopping to find an answer email saying they "would love to use it for an upcoming feature". I certainly didn't expect to hear from them so fast and was very pleasantly surprised. YAY!!

Here are a few things I have been working on over the last couple of days:

This Gift Certificate Pouch was design for a girlfriends present. It features the Scribble This set that was in the Spring Mini Catalogue and I believe is soon to resurface in the new catalogue (people have info!).

It holds the certificate in place and is held closed with the sliding band that has been embellished with a gorgeous flower. The flower has been 'water-coloured' with the Stampin' Pastels and a blender pen.

This next photo is using my stash of 'other' products. It was my eldest Son's birthday on the weekend and instead of making my family a card, I make them an 8x8 scrapbook page with my written greeting on the back. This was his page/card for turning 8.
Thanks for sharing in my good news.
Bye for now,
