Me??? Stamping Royalty???

I've been holding this in for awhile, but I got the word yesterday that I can finally share! I was selected as one of the winners for the Paper Crafts Stamping Royalty contest. I honestly didn't think there was even a 1% chance that one of my cards would get picked, and I was so surprised when I got the email. I'm also so glad there was not a hidden camera in my house when I found out!

So you'll see this card, and all the other winner's cards, in the Nov/Dec Paper Crafts Issue! I'm sure it will be as fabulous as all of their issues.

And I know I've said this before, but I remember not too long ago thinking I would never have a card even published.  I hope that encourages you all to keep pursuing your dreams!
