FWF {March 4th}--Recent publications and a NEW card

Hello, friends:}


Hang in there!! This is a LONG post with FAB pics!! New card at the bottom!!! 


Happy FWF!! Be sure to stop by the Unity blog for a complete list of blogs to hop! 


I have some exciting news to share today! I know most of you have already seen this...but I wanted to share it on my blog! I have wanted to get published for quite some time...and I was published last year in several magazines, including CARDS and For The Home. There is just something about seeing your name in print--and I just love how the magazine photographers really make your creations POP! Well--on Feb. 15th, my first two publications were on the stands in the Paper Crafts March/April issue! ACK! I was sooooooo excited! I have two creations in this magazine--both for the baby creation section [challenge: not using pink or blue]. I just looooooove this card--Chapter 2: New baby. I love the papers, and I used my Unity butterfly stamp {Butterfly Beauty}. LOVE LOVE LOVE this card! 
OH MY--there it is!! Soooo cute! Be sure to look for my tag in this mag too!

I was also published in the December CARDS magazine and the premiere issue of the Cricut Magazine. I know you've seen this tag before--it's using Unity's camper {Remember Happiness} and grid {Moments in Bloom} with a Unity tree {Naturally You}. I made this card using the PDCC color inspiration! When I found these magazines in our small local bookstore, I actually squealed!  Two of the customers just looked at me! I was sooooooo excited!!


And because I could...I made Trav come with me to the local Michael's and get some pics of me with my first Paper Crafts mag! OH MY! LOVE LOVE LOVE it:)
 
First pic--blurry so Trav had to go again! Next pic--action shot!
Ok--and now for a new creation that I made. I made this card for my grandma [it was her bday last week--and NOTE:: I have yet to send it to her, I was going to submit it to a call, but it didn't fit any! So it IS coming in the mail, Grandma!!]. I made this all by stamping and embossing. I used Unity's postcard stamp, a flower {To The Moon & Back}, butterflies {Happy Everything}, and script {My Dear} stamps. After stamping and embossing, I inked the card with distress inks, added a few sprits of perfect pearls, and finished it with gems and seam binding. LOOOVE it! Perfect for my grandma;) It's also perfect for the ABC DT challenge {birthday cards}. LOVE this card! 
 Not sure if you can see the perfect pearls...how about in this pic? Trust me--it is super gorgeous in person!
That's it for me today. Be sure to stop by the Unity website for great deals on more amazing stamps and the Unity blog for the complete list of FWF friends:} Thanks for stopping by and for leaving some love--you make me smile! Blessings:}
