Have a Dream...

On Friday morning, I found out I had made the Paper Crafts Magazine's Gallery Idol Top 20. I think I started hyperventilating when I saw my picture on the PC Connections blog. I think my kids were scared by my response (well, only for a second, and then they ignored me and went back to watching Dora). Holy moly! Little ole' me! Thanks, PC!

All the comments and e-mails meant so much to me. Thank you, everyone, for your well-wishes! It's hard knowing how many well-deserving designers there were in the competition--there were some breathtaking cards in the gallery. It means even more to read those supportive comments from others.

Here's my card and I feel that the sentiment is appropriate:


I I love those subtle chevrons on the background paper...I think I'm certifiably a chevron/zigzag addict. :)  

It was a whirlwind weekend working on my card for the next round. Be sure to check back at 12:00 MDT today for my Round 2 card. I'm excited about it!

Thank you all again!

  3. But the question is: how did you stamp the flowers and the sentiment. I studied the card well and couldn't figure it out. I think this calls for a tutorial ;) congrats on being chosen. You know I am a fan...
