A Papercrafts Magazine Christmas Card

OK...a moment of transparency.  I think I am a bit quirky...odd...unusual...peculiar... when it comes to this passion of mine...cardmaking.  I LOVE a challenge and a competition...but accolades ...not so much...that's just me:)!!  I have been truly honored by winning various challenges and given wonderful opportunities making cards, but it's the challenges, the winning some times, and opportunities that are truly the fun for me... the acknowledgement of them is tough for me...does that make sense??...maybe a little weird??!!  Well, earlier in the year, I decided to enter one of my greatest challenges...a contest of sorts to me...with the urging of a sweet magazine editor at Papercrafts Magazine:)!!...to submit my cards for publication!!  The card below was one of my very first cards published!!  It is in the Papercrafts Magazine Holiday Cards &More Volume 7  ...pg. 35... and I am able to share it with you...I am thrilled and so honored!!!...sharing my fun of being published with you...
 Made with a stamp from Hero Arts(Tree with Stars) and sentiment from Stampabilities.  Stamped image and sentiment with Versamark and gold embossed.  Used Papertrey Ink Canvas/Linen impression plate for texture.  Colored with real red and old olive markers added ribbon and popped up on red card.  Here's a close up of the gold...
Simple Christmas card...I remain simply honored.  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  7. Oh holy smoke Lisa, your card is magnificent. I wouldn't buy that stamp in a million years - I just don't have 'the eye' you were blest with or the artistic skill.
    Big congrats on being published, your work is amazing. Thank you for sharing your creations with us.
