Hello! Happy Thursday! I love Thursdays as it's a nice relaxing day at home. No kids activities and no reason for me to leave the home! I love catching up on house stuff, crafting and today I am focusing on my assignment. Unless inspiration strikes!
I am beyond excited to share with you my FIRST ever published card! It is in the January issue of CARDS magazine. Back in August when I received my first email of having a card picked up I was beyond happy! It really is a dream come true. I know my crafty friends get it but I was surprised by how happy friends and family were too! Running into people I got a lot of congratulations and questions about it! Neat, huh?
It was fantastic that this card was picked up because I love it:
I was very thankful for Vanessa emailing me a scanned photo of my card in the magazine as I had yet to see it. Here is how it looks in the magazine:
I love how they took a photo of it! So pretty! I love what is in the background! :> So when the issue arrived here in Canada I had to check it out in print so I went to my LSS and they shared in my joy! :> Here you can see how happy I am:
I am a happy girl. Who would have thought 5 years ago when I was a young mom to a sweet baby girl and thought I needed a hobby just for me and decided on cardmaking that one day one of my cards would be in a magazine never mind CARDS! I've realized lately that I am the happiest that I've been since I've rediscovered my creativity. It started 5 years go with card making. I was creative as a child but with the demands of school and university I lost it. So happy I've found it again.
Wishing you a fantastic day!
