This has been a banner year for me; being published for the first time in January's Paper Crafts has given me the confidence to try again, and every once in awhile, I get another one - so thrilling! Look for upcoming cards in Create Stamping in February, CARDS in February and March, CardMaker in March, and Paper Crafts in the March/April issue. In April, Cath chose me as one of her Moxie Fabbers of the Week! And as a door closed on my DT work at Lily Pad Cards, a huge one opened as I was one of the new DT members chosen at Simon Says Stamp in June! I love this team! Also, in October, I was chosen as a DT member at The Craft's Meow, and have been enjoying getting settled in there, too.
So get comfy with a hot coffee or tea - I hope you enjoy my favorites from this year! You can click on the picture to go back to the original post.....
