Blast off! Papercrafts magazine card

I'm so excited to share this card! The problem with publishing work is that you have to keep things a secret for a while until the magazine releases the issue, which is NOT easy, believe me. The most exciting thing (for me) about this particular little cutie is that it was a special request. Papercrafts magazine asked Close to My Heart to send me some papers from the new summer catalog, really early. Like, a couple of months before the papers were released. Can you imagine how excited I was to find out that PC wanted little ol' ME?

The card is in the July/August 2009 issue -- wait, isn't it still May? They do release pretty early, don't they? Fine with me, less waiting time so I can share now!



The supplies used in this card include Animal Cookies level 2 papers, rocketship sticker from Stardust My Stickease, swirl stamp from Free Spirit set, and letter stickers from Color-Ready Alphabets.

I loved this card when I saw it in Papercrafts. I should have known it was your creation right away. You do terrific work!

I love that you included a My Stickease image here. I know I don't use mine nearly as much as I could.

Love your playlist! Perked me right up on this very rainy day!

How EXCITING to be chosen and to get products before they're released...I taught at Convention and had the priviledge of seeing new things too. It's fun getting a sneak peek.

Tresa - I left a present for you on my blog :-)

When I flipped through my Papercrafts mag, I stopped at one page and thought, "Hey! I recognize that paper!"...."Hey! I know who Tresa is!"

Congrats! What a luck lady to get the special request. You're a great artist and deserve it!
