April CARDS Publication and April RAK winner!

Hello Crafty Friends!  Friday is here!  The weekend is here!  It was a busy week this week so glad it's over!  Spending today close to home!  Much needed!  Happy it's sunny after dreary weather, and yes snow on Tuesday!  Hopefully it's our last snowfall for the season!  Come on Spring!

Today I am stopping by to share one of my favorite cards published in April's CARDS in the baby section:


Here is how it appears in the magazine:



I always love to see how they stage and photograph my cards and this month is truly inspiring!   I love the aqua background pulling the aqua of the card out and the pretty little tulle skirt that the card sits on!  :>  I was delighted when my friend Nina told me that a snippet of my card was featured in the editors note!  This is actually the second time, the first was July 2012 but I didn't know until later when i received the issue.  So thrilled about this:


 
I also wanted to share the winner for my April RAK who wins this stamp set by Hero Arts.  I picked through all the comments left in April on my blog, looking at the blogger comments page makes it easy, the winner is:


Congrats Dawn please email me your address!

I am having another RAK for May!  And the prize this month is this Hero Arts stamp set:

Here's how and why:

I am appreciative of the time that you take to visit my blog and I want to thank you with this.   I find joy in blogging and the feedback that it brings!  I have too many stamps that haven't seen ink!  This is a new stamp (as they will be).  Doesn't matter where you live I will ship anywhere!  Leave a comment in May on any post and you will have a chance to win!  You don't have to be a blog follower but it would make me happy and it would be easier for you to find out if you won!

That's it for me!  Hope you have a fabulous weekend!  I have much to prepare for!  Working on Mother's Day gifts, teaching a class in the inner city next week and next Friday Ariel and I will appear on Breakfast Television doing Mother's Day Crafts!
