Finally!!!  I can share with you some amazing exciting news that I've know for over a month now.  As demonstrators we get a magazine, Stampin' Success, it's a fantastic magazine and probably the only magazine I read cover to cover when I receive it.  Every month they hold monthly art contests.  I entered one of them and I won!!!  I couldn't believe it when I got the email!  I was sooo excited and really surprised I never thought I'd win.  In addition to being published in the magazine I also got to pick 3 free stamp sets, so that was just icing on the cake.  But today is all about the card I won with.  I love it!  I had to send it in a padded envelope so it wouldn't get smooshed. 

The flowers are just made with circles.  I was working on a different project and meant to cut the circles out of Crumb Cake, I'm not sure how or why I thought I needed Not Quite Navy, but there I was with 9 circles I couldn't use (I didn't use them all on this card).  I had to use them, no sense in wasting perfectly good circles.  So this card was made.  I do love it and wish I had made 2 to keep on for myself, but I'll always have the magazine to remember it :)

Here's the actual article from the magazine.  I'm so honored to be in it!  I'm always in awe of some of the projects that win so to be one of them myself is a little surreal for me :)  But just another reason why I LOVE what I do soooo much.  YOU can do what I do too, sign up this month and get a Free Big Shot!!!!!  You really won't find a better deal than that!!!!  If there was one tool I couldn't live without in my stamp room it's my big shot, if you own one, you know what I'm talking about :) 

Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!!

Woo hoo!!! Congrats Ruth. I've always wanted to enter one of the monthly contests, but never get around to it. I can't wait to read my Stampin' Success (it came last night) and see your card in it! Congrats again; you deserve it.
