Speaking of Shabby Chic (Happy Dance!)



OK OK OK... HUGE AMONGOUS news!!

I got an honorable mention with one of my Shabby Chic cards on the Hero Arts Blog! I'm so excited! There were 153 entries and my little ol' card, this one, got one of the Honorable Mentions! I am on cloud nine!

The fun part is, Jacqueline won the second place slot! She is one of my stamping friends... Isn't she just awesome????? I love her gorgeous work!

Now, it you recall, I made two cards and 'saved' one to show later.

Here it is!

My Second Shabby Chic Card
I also entered this onto the Hero Arts Challenge
