Life's a Delight ...

Hello there.  I have some exciting news since my last post. One of my cards was accepted by Paper Craft Magazine to be published in the "Stamp It Cards! Volume 9".  I'm so looking forward to sharing my card with you once the publication goes on sale June 26, 2012.  Talk about excitement!  The hubby was still home when I opened the email, I screamed, and he freaked out a little until I told him.  He is very proud of me! ;o)

I have been creating, but just didn't find the time to post my designs.  So before my friends come over today to create some card at my A Muse Studio Workshop I figured it was time to get some posts done.

The first card is for the current DeNami Sketch Challenge #11
I pulled out the Large & Mini Cherries which you can find here, and the sentiment is located here.  3D Crystal Lacquer was used on the cherries to give them some shine. 

Now here is the sketch Paulina created for us to work with.
Here's to hoping you like my take on the sketch!

Until next time ... Take care!
Ruza

Other products used ... Cardstock & Ribbon from DeNami Design, Copic Markers, Martha Stewart Scallop 3-dot Punch, ATG, and 3D Foam Squares

A HUGE CONGRATS to you, Ruza!! The feeling of finding out that one of your creations will be published is the best--and then seeing it actually in print is even better!! I hope you ride that high for quite a while :D.
