First Publication Check

Yesterday afternoon, I was grinning ear to ear. I received my very first publication check from Paper Crafts! Yay... I had 3 cards accepted for Card Creations Volume 9. I haven't seen the magazine, yet, but it's coming out pretty soon. Yep, I asked hubby to take picture of me holding the check. Nerdy, I know, but I can't help it. :) It sure is a great feeling getting paid doing what I love.

I also get to play a little bit last  night and made a card using Card Pattern sketch 112.


Here's the card and am also entering this card for Penny Black bright & bold challenge.

Challenges:
Sparkles Forum - Anything goes
Partytime Tuesdays - Anything Goes

Know what else made me happy? Finding things that I thought I lost. I found my old Hero Arts sentiment set that I thought I lost over a year ago. Apparently I have thought of starting a new way to store my cling stamps and was trying it out with this set and totally forgot about it. I don't know how many times I clean my room looking for this stamp. Then recently, I pull out this binder that holds plastic inserts, which I thought was empty and there's the stamp in between all the plastic. Sigh... I can be so forgetful sometime.

Hope your Wednesday goes well and have a blessed day everyone!
