Published again!

My computer has been taking a little vacation for the last couple of days. Today it came back and allowed me to read through my e-mails. One of them was from scrapbook news and review which is an online magazine. They informed me that the project I had sent in is going to be published in Volume #3, Issue #11 Sunday, October 31, 2010 8pm EST - their special double issue!

I'm so happy because this is the first time I sent anything to them and they accepted me at once. It was the same thing with stampers' sampler; got published on the first try. I'm going to be so spoiled expecting to be published every time, lol.

It's funny because I made that project for the GDT spot at Whiff of joy. Katharina didn't offer me any position, but instead I used the project and got published. I have taken away the pics until the end of november, but if you've been visiting my blog maybe you remember THIS POST?

Thanks a munch

Ok, so it's a slightly corny sentiment, but I wanted this to be a thank-you card and this is the best I could do, lol. I hope it makes sense to you using "munch" instead of "bunch". I'd definately like to munch some of those cakes!
Since I've been a bit tired of Halloween and autumn themed cards I decided on somthing totally different. It might have been a good idea to start on my Christmascards, but that would be out of charachter for me. Why not saving it until the very last minute instead, lol.

So for today's card I've been colouring one of Samantha Rawling's cuties called cake girl from sweetpea stamps. I got myself these patterned papers a while ago and as soon as the stamp came through my mailbox I've been wanting to use them together.

She is coloured with my promakers and cut out using one of the nestabilities. The edges are "burnt" with walnut stain distress ink. The little tag is a cuttlebug die and the text is written by hand (it shows unfortunately) I like how the smaller squares turned out. I rounded  two corners - diagonally. I think it creates a look like they are spritzed out, kind of like whipped cream or even the girl's hat. I also added glitterglue to some of the details on the patterned paper. The whipped cream on the girl's cake got some white liquid pearls.

The challenges I used for this card:

Cute card thursday - sketch
Simon says stamp - thanks
Secret crafter - use a manga image

Thanks for stopping by.
