VLVJan2011 and CQC #66 and some FANTASTIC news!!!

Hi everyone. I have fantastic news that I've been keeping for months now!!! I'm one of the winners of the World Card Making Day Contest!!!! You can read about it here.

The prize was insane!!! When a big box arrived on our porch that had a Paper Crafts sticker on it...well...I was jumping and dancing and just going crazy with excitement!!! This is what they generously gave the winners. It was my first ever submission to a magazine. And I remember thinking to myself that I was crazy for submitting my first card in such a big contest!!! Well, I guess you can only imagine how happy I was when I got the news that I was one of the winners. I'm soo excited! I'm going to frame that page or the entire issue altogether!!! Hahahaha! 






Onto my post. I'm posting a card I made last night. This one is for the VLVJan2011 as well as CQC #66. I made it last night but wasn't able to post it because blogger was down. I'm very tired from work so I'll just show you all my card. :) Here's the sketch and the color combo.




Thank you so much for stopping by tonight to check out my post and to share my wonderful news! I'll see you all tomorrow! Good night folks! :)
