Soft and subtle


Can you believe it is March already? *grin* I hope spring is coming soon!

I've been so busy with DT projects and family life that I haven't had time to think straight. But I wanted to share some fun news with you, my loyal crafty friends.

After much urging by some of you, I decided to submit a project for publication and it WAS ACCEPTED! And it came out in the March issue of CARDS magazine yesterday! (Pg 54)
I never realized how fun it was to see something you've created in print. Very Cool.

Special thanks go to my blogging buddy Julie Campbell who has been encouraging me for years to submit. *wink*

The above card has been in my draft posts for ages just waiting to come out, and I have a few minutes to post so I thought I would share. All supplies are PTI. This card was not a favorite of mine (hence it was in draft mode!) but I submitted it for one of the color challenges that Nichole issued during the anniversary festivities.

Thanks for letting me share my good news with all of you, I'm a bit giddy at the moment...
big hugs,
