February Publications!

Hello!  Happy Thursday!  I am quite excited as tonight I will be going to my first Jets game!  Well this season you see the Jets are a NHL Hockey Team!  15 sad years ago the Jets left our city!  :<  And after a long awaited time our city has an NHL team!  I personally think that every bigger city in Canada should have an NHL team as we love hockey here!  Hubby and his friends were beyond lucky to get season tickets, I think they sold out in just minutes!  He has gone to a few games already this season and it's the first time I am going!  I am so excited!  When they sing the national anthem the whole arena shouts out True North when those words are sung, as the team is owned by a company called True North!  So cool!  Apparently even if you don't like hockey you will have a great time with the energy and excitement of the arena!  Chad's parents are babysitting the kids and since Ariel doesn't have school tomorrow they are sleeping over!

I am here with two cards that I had published in February!!!  They are both in Create Stamping Idea Book.   I love this magazine always have so I am beyond thrilled to have two cards in it!  They are both in the heat embossing section, what a surprise with how much heat embossing I do!  :>  Here they are:

And my second card:

When I saw the cards in the issue I was amazed by how great they looked in print!  I love it!  Seeing the props they pick how they stage the card is so cool!  And it always looks so much better how they photograph it than me!  I took a picture of this card in the issue to show you:

If I could find those ceramic aqua books to buy for my home I would!  I received a kind email from a stranger about this card!  How neat?  And special thanks to my LSS Scrapbook Cottage for calling me and letting me know they put an issue aside so I could see it!  :>

Well I am off!  I have a busy weekend ahead of me, on Sunday I will be working on bridal shower invites for my brother's fiance 100 of them!  I've invited friends to help out and so far I think there will be 5 of us.  Too bad I couldn't invite you over to help!  :>

A huge congrats on your publications! I need to check that out. Each one of these is truly lovely - that little butterfly gal is so dear; the lace and ribbon are so perfect for her. And the flowers - well, that is my favorite color and I love the dimension you created! Go, girl!

Big congrats on your publications...maybe one day I will try this publication thing...ha! Well deserved! I have seen those ceramic books in a local speciality store when I lived in Hawaii, so I know they are around.

Have fun with the hockey came! My son is loving getting acquired to it as having never been exposed to it in Hawaii. He plays street hockey all the time and loves the Washington Capitals since that is the team closest to us.

Hugs,
