Sailing and Driving

  Hi everyone!! I have a couple cards to share, but first, I have a couple announcements!

The first announcement is actually a call for publication. Are you interested in seeing your work in a magazine? Want a badge on your blog letting everyone know you've been published? Well, here's your chance!! Even if you don't need a little ego booster, go ahead and submit anyway. Your creation may just make someone's day or inspire a fellow crafter. I am seeking scrapbookers and cardmakers - including those who design digitally - to submit their creations for the next issue of ScrapStreet Magazine.In particular, I am looking for projects that incorporate humor. Here it is:

Submission Call for the Spring 2012 Issue
of ScrapStreet Magazine

The Funny Side. Believe it or not, humor has been proven to be therapeutic. In fact, a recent study found that humor causes the brain to release endorphins that act as a natural pain killer! I guess laughter really is the best medicine!! Show us how you use humor in your cards or layouts. 

Deadline is midnight February 18th for all calls.
Please send your work to
Please send a separate email for each submission you would like to be considered for publication. Please keep the image size around 600 x 600 pixels. Thank you!

If humor isn't your cup of tea (but I doubt that's the case) then consider submitting
to one of the other calls listed here.

Speaking of getting published ...
I am very excited to announce that one of the cards I submitted to the July/August issue of Paper Crafts Magazine was selected for publication! I am over the moon, especially because there were 1,323 submissions and only 100 were selected. Sixty-five designers were chosen, including 10 newbies! I am one of the newbies! I can't post the card that made it, but I can share with you a couple cards I submitted that didn't make it.

Thanks for looking!

I thought I already left a comment, but since Blogger was acting weird, I might not have been able to. Anyhoo, when I saw your post on FB, I was jumping for joy!! YEAH!!!! The shaped card is so cool...I'm guessing the blue is the back of the card? Love it! And I am in love with your driving scene. I made one for this category, too, but mine looked completely different. It's so funny to see the variations! Hugs to you and I can't wait to see your pub in print!
