WOW I CAN'T BELIEVE IT....TUES. TRIGGER - 365 CARDS

Well I just got my issue of CRAFT N THINGS today and normally when I have the privilege of being published in a magazine, I don't mention it on my blog...........BUT....today was a bit special to me...as most of you know, I am the owner of The Cutting Cafe and to my surprise, I already knew I was to have 3 items published in the magazine for April 2010, but I didn't know that the editor was going to say a few words about The Cutting Cafe along with this project:This project used the ASSORTED PILLOW BOX, HAPPY EASTER BACKGROUND and EASTER SENTIMENTS SET......wow this is a first for The Cutting Cafe...thank you so much Dawn......
If you have never purchased a copy of Craft n things, you really need to pick up a copy the next time your at a craft store...their book is full of amazing projects from cards to sewing to jewelry and so much more...

Okay up next, I decided to do a few challenges today...Moxie Fab World just issued their TUESDAY TRIGGER and I so loved the sample card...that Kimberly Crawford is something else I tell ya...this card is based upon her amazing sample here....I decided to use one of the sentiments from the BIG STUFF SENTIMENTS SET from the Cutting Cafe...I reduced my image a bit to fit on the bottom of the card, but one thing that I do love about this stamp set is that the images are big...great for making a huge statement on a card or other project...Of course I had to also use some more of the scallops from the ASSORTED SCALLOP SET.....all lined up with loads of Kaiser scrapbook rhinestones...Next up is a fun card based upon Audrey's fabulous card here...from 365 CARDS....goodness, I can't get enough of those talented ladies over there...be sure to check them out DAILY...for this card I used one of the new Easter sets from the Cutting Cafe called Easter set 2 and again I used the ASSORTED SCALLOP set from the Cutting Cafe...you might not be able to tell, but I doodled a bunch of pink dots on some of the eggs and on the scallop border using some of that yummy Liquid Pearl stuff...and see that crochet flower...well that is from PAPER BLOOMS...I am so in need of more crochet flowers...Well that is it for me....gotta run and go watch American Idol.....have a great night and a wonderful Wednesday...hugs
