FINALLY ... I get to share my exciting news with you!
I'm thrilled & honored to let you know that myself and Squigglefly team mates Nancy Williams, Charlene Mitchell and Elizabeth Hart have had baby cards published in the
(on sale TODAY)

(Issue #120)

showcasing the use of a variety of Squigglefly digital images.
Charlene's card made the front cover!  Way to go girl!!
Here is the card I had published...

The digi image was designed by Judith Hart and the sentiment is by Elizabeth Kushner.
Unfortunately, there was a mistake in printing and they inserted my photo on both my card and Nancy Williams (I feel so bad about that!).

While I have your attention {she said with a little snicker} I'd like to share with you another card I have created for the SHAPED challenge going on over at Classy Cards n Such.  SHAPED cards is not really something I do a lot of so this challenge really intrigued me!  And, I must say I like how this came together.

Believe it or not, the base card is the ONLY thing I had to make.
 All the other pieces were laying on my work table, cut for
other projects that ended up not being used!
UNTIL TODAY that is!
