CARDS: Designer of the Month

I'm so excited to post today that CARDS magazine named me Designer of the Month in its current issue, February 2013, on stands now. 



The magazine chooses 12 designers a year for this designation. I am not sure how I slipped into the mix but I admit: I grinned ear to ear when I found out.  CARDS magazine published an interview with me and featured five of my cards. Four cards were new for the magazine and one was a favorite of mine that I made with Little Yellow Bicycle.  Unfortunately, I can't show the cards until March 1 due to my contract. 

But I can show a scan of the article.




And I can show you two of my cards that were published in the January issue of CARDS. 


This one was for the ribbon challenge.  I used my very favorite ribbon for this one: May Arts chevron twill.  I have it in every color. 



This card I made for an assignment with My Creative Scrapbook, using a kit that featured this cute collection from Echo Park Paper

Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be back Tuesday with a new post. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
