BE Mine...Valentine and a publication 49

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, October 5, 2011 @ 11:00 PM | , ,

Hi there! Before I get to my crafty post, I must mention the AMAZING Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple. Such very sad news for the world to have lost such a brilliant man, my dear hubby Scott was one of his biggest fans as he watched that company grow since 1984. My heart thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and children during these difficult times. Steve surely has touched the lives of millions around the world.
I wanted to take a moment to thank CARDS Magazine for publishing my card shown below in the September issue! I am so thrilled and honored when one of my little hand made cards get picked :) For me, it's like winning the lottery in the paper crafting world! You have to submit to get picked and you just never know! EVERY month, the magazine is loaded with beautiful cards ~ be sure to take a peek for yourself!
I made this rather CAS card using pretty patterned papers and ephemera from the Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue Collection.
Not a whole lot of stamping or die cutting going on here. The Eiffel Tower and fancy label were included in the ephermera pack. All I had to do was stamp the sentiment from Waltzingmouse Seasons of Love - Tags and adhere a little heart die cut that was made using a Spellbinders Heart Punch Template for the Presto Punch.
Thanks so much for looking! If you are interested in winning a chance to be featured on the Pink Paislee Blog and a $50. Amazon gift certificate, be sure to check out the October issue of the Live Pink! Newsletter for COMPLETE details ~ click HERE! Also, if you live in the Netherlands and you love Pink Paislee you may be interested in taking a class from Rebecca Cross, Owner of Pink Paislee!!! Click HERE for further details and please tell her I sent you :) Be Sweet!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Seasons of Love - Tags
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue Collection
Dies & Machine: Spellbinders Heart Punch Template for the Presto Punch, Presto Punch
Other: Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue Ephemera
