CARDS Magazine July 2011

Hi friends! I hope you had a great weekend and that this lovely hurricane didn't ruin any of your plans or property. What a week weather-wise! It's nuts around here. Anyhoo, thanks to everyone who visited my blog and left a comment on my Paper Crafts Bonus Sketch Blog Hop post! It was great hearing from so many fellow crafters.

So, today I thought I'd share some cards I had published in the July 2011 issue of CARDS magazine. I had 3 in this issue which was a first for me and a very exciting accomplishment. The funny thing was I got the acceptance e-mails while waiting in line for the restroom at a nightclub! I guess you never know where the acceptance fairy will find you. For me, it was with my girlfriends in a dark, crowded club surrounded by a lot of…non-cardmakers, let's say.

Here's the adorable cover of the July 2011 issue:

And here are the cards I had in this issue:




These were published in the Barbeque Invite, Bridal Shower Invite and Felt categories, respectively. Make sure to check your local bookstore for the latest CARDS magazine issue and if you want to order the July 2011 issue, here's a link.  

Also, on a completely unrelated note, the U.S. Open starts today! So, if you like watching tennis, don't forget. I'm rooting for my favorite, Novak Djokovic, as always! 

Have a great Monday and I'll see you on Wednesday for another fun Blog Hop! Whoo hoo! (I told you I can't say those words without a "whoo hoo"). Thanks for stopping by!

    Congrats on your publications, these cards are truly amazing! No wonder they were accepted (even when you are in line for the bathroom!)
