A DOUBLE Woo Hoo!!

Well.........yesterday my hubby brings the mail and as I look through it, WOW.....I have a complimentary copy of Stamper's Sampler Catch Up Issue!!  THAT means that I was Published!  Isn't that cool??!!!   So.......I quickly scanned through the copy to find my card (since I have NO idea which one it might be).  Hmmmm.....I can't find it.  I scan through slower......still didn't see it.  So I went page by page and read the names of the submitting artists.  Finally......on page 110.....there it was.......a card that I sent in over 2 years ago.  Wish I could do that card over again because I could do it much better now!!  It was done before I even had my Nesties.  So......let that be a good lesson to you.......never give up.....they may finally pick your card!!

THEN..........Since I am a guest designer for Hambo Hoedown today I thought I'd show you my card.  You should pop on over to Hambo to look at their other designer's cards as well......so cute!  The challenge was to use lots of lace and flowers.....so I did!  ;-)  I hope you enjoy it!
