Happy Wednesday everyone--we're halfway thru the week, yay! I am off and about today, trying to get lots of things done in not enough time, hee hee. Today is my lunch bunch with my favorite gal pals & yesterday I got my hair done. Can't believe I hadn't gotten my hair cut & colored since before I left for CHA in January--my hair grows veryyyyyy slooooowwww, LOL! Plus I don't really like to sit in a chair for very long--I get antsy, so I try not to go to often, my stamper's ADD again, LMBO!!

BTW, I got news that a few more of my projects were excepted to CardMaker Magazine--Whooot, Whooot!! I'm sooooo excited & what a great birthday present dontcha' think? My project in PaperCrafts Magazine will be out in June--that will be my first published piece & I cannot wait, definitely will be framing that issue :o) Anywho, I've got a couple random cards to share with you that I had done but not posted on my blog yet....

The first card uses the fabulous "Damask Designs" set by PTI--I love all things damask or toile (or zebra print, hee hee)! I made 4 of these notecards (2 thanks & 2 happy bdays) as a set and they're for sale over on my Etsy shoppe! This set is so fun to use & I just paired it with PTI's spring moss & vintage cream cs--the ribbon & buttons are PTI too (ya know I lovee my PTI products!!). Simply elegant!

Second card uses some of the new Medieval stamps from Whiff of Joy. Isn't this horse gorgeous--I love it! I paired "Charlotte's Horse" with "Knight Charlie"--so cute together & fabulous for a boy's birthday or graduation card. You can get both of these stamps at 7 Kids College Fund now if you live here in the States! The sentiment is from Verve Stamps "Wonderful Wishes" set--I thought it went perfectly with this scene. I kept the embellishments to some stickles & diamond glaze on the image & some masculine dp. Simple and fun!

Hope you're having a fabulous day! See ya back here tomorrow!
