Cover Girl!

Well gang - Bear with me --- I have some SUPER exciting news to share with you today! Some of you have read my recent post for the Gina K Designs Holiday Treats Blog Hop and hopefully many of you downloaded the free recipe book. If you did read that post then you know that I was tickled pink to have my project featured on the COVER of the recipe book. :-)  :-)

NOW comes the really good stuff.... I got a package in the mail on Saturday - I thought it might be yet another real estate company's calendar and almost didn't open it.  Well, I did open it and WOW - there was a copy of the latest Just Cards Magazine - with a letter saying that they had featured one of my projects in this volume.  *SWOON* Oh my - that meant one of my cards was actually PUBLISHED in a real MAGAZINE!!! LOL {I submitted this in March and had totally forgotten about it - LOL}

So as I began to look at the magazine to find what page my card was on (pg 27 and write up is on page 26) I discovered that my project was featured.... ON THE COVER!!!! Yep - I'm a "cover girl" - TWICE in one week. I was so over the moon my DH needed to hang on to me so I didn't float away.

Here's the mag cover (my card is the yellow tulip one - the highlighting is mine, not on the actual cover):



Wait - it gets better still.... my card was created with Gina K Designs stamp sets, A Year of Flowers and Elegant Flowers for the sentiment. I thought Gina would get a kick out of knowing that so I sent her a quick note and guess what.... Gina sent me a publishing BONUS ( yeah some real $) AND I get to chose a stamp set for free - NOW HOW COOL IS THAT???? It wasn't just for me - it's for anyone who has a card that uses exclusively Gina K Designs stamps which gets published in a major card magazine !!! SO - get out your favorite GKD stamps and start submitting!! There is nothing quite like the feeling of seeing your work published!

Here's the recipe cover too in case you missed it - I'm the red card, cookies:


Ok - so it feels a little strange to "toot my own horn"  - trust me - it's just more the total excitement to share with all my stampin' friends and followers - we ALL can relate to the exhilaration of something as exciting as this.

Have a great week! Hugs and HUGE smiles...
