My First COVER!!!

I just nearly freaked out when I got my mail yesterday! Flipping through the junk mail, bills and such and then I got to my July issue of CardMaker Magazine!!!! HOLY SMOKE!!! That is my card on the COVER!!! I have been pretty lucky this last year and had cards published in quite a few of their magazines this year... a total shocker, but thrilled! But to have one on the cover!!! I haven't calmed down yet! Doing the happy dance :0) The call was for a card with an Ice Cream theme. I used my Alota RubberStamps, Three scoops stamps - lots of dimensional glaze and snow marker for the whipped cream - Hope you will get your copy and see it up close! Ok.... now of to dance some more!

HUGS -
