So much excitement!

I'm telling you, so many cool crafting things have happened lately. My penguin suggestions were chosen for the new Memory Box release, my McDonald's coffee inspired card was featured on the Hero Arts blog, and perhaps most exciting of all, I was chosen as one of Paper Crafts Magazine's 2008 "Stamping Royalty!" I received the call from Paper Crafts yesterday, and I am just beside myself. I didn't want to post last night because I wasn't sure if I was allowed to "spill the beans," or if I had to wait till the issue was out in November. I saw that other people were starting to post info about their win on their blogs, so I thought it was okay to post here. Am I paranoid, or what? Sorry this post ended up being a little too "me, me, me." I am just so darned excited and grateful and wanted to share.

Today's card is one I made for the Hero Arts "circle" challenge. I am not sure if I could have fit one more circle on it! I stamped the cream paper with a variety of circles and colors and added two words from my "F" clear set. I attached a dotted ribbon around the cream paper and added punched out black circles to the bottom to finish the card. Yep, this was another easy card!

If you couldn't make it to Angela's for the Stacy Stamps demo, we begged extra samples and stamps from Stacy to keep at the store. Come in and check them out if you get a chance.
