Stamping Royalty and a Card

Hi Everyone! I'm back again with another Paper Smooches card and a little announcement (you may have already heard)!

I am shocked, thrilled and a little excited (okay A LOT excited) to have received an honor I only have dreamed about...


That's right! I was selected as one of the 2012 Stamping Royalty winners! Eeeek! Too cool really. Since I only submitted 3 cards (2 of which were previous rejects) I wasn't expecting anything AT ALL. I did LOVE the cards I sent in but figured they weren't what Paper Crafts was looking for since they were rejected the first time around. But I'll let you in on a little something. Maybe this will keep you going if you've had publishing woes. One of my previously rejected cards is a STAMPING ROYALTY WINNER! :)

Okay, now on to today's card... 


This card was inspired by the Paper Sparks inspiration photo HERE. I knew I wanted sun rays coming from behind the coffee cup so I went searching through my Paper Smooches sets and found the perfect solution in the exclamation mark in the He Said She Said set. I also used Hot Concoctions, Sentiment Sampler and Geo-Graphic.


Thanks for stopping by today and sharing in my excitement!
