Publication News

Hi Everyone:
I trust that your all doing well and enjoying your weekend. Well here in the Maritimes the snow is still falling and Winter seems to be staying put for a while. Won't be be long though and Spring will be here. Yay!!  I wanted to share some exciting news with you all!! I am honored and humbled to say that my card below made the front cover of the Complete Cardmaking Magazine

To check out this publication and to purchase it click here.

Here is a better view of the card.
To learn how to create the background check out the tutorial in this post. 

Close-up of the coloring and details. 
I used Little Frog and Cattail Pond for this card. 

Thanks so much to Laurie Wilson for the beautiful digital stamp images. This would not have happened if she had not provided me with this great opportunity. Loads of new images in the store. Why not check them out and play along with two challenges that are going on right now at Doodle Pantry. First check out the Totally Papercrafts Sponsorship challenge. The theme is cute images. To check out what some of the Design Team Members created, check out the Doodle Pantry Post here. Also, check out Doodle Pantry Challenge #43. You can get this image below for free if you create a project using a Doodle Pantry image. 

Thanks for dropping in and for being patient with me during this creative journey that I have been on. I know that things have been sporadic  here and now that some things are settling down, I am getting more time to create. I trust that you are all having some great crafting moments as well. 

Until next time    .........
Take Care & God Bless

Congratulations, Dana! You must be so excited. Your card is gorgeous and so is your coloring! Can't wait to see the magazine so I can find out how you did the background. Unfortunately the Staedtler pastel chalk tutorial is no longer available.
