Beachy Best Friend and Exciting News

Do you ever get an idea for a card and no matter what you do, you can't make it work? And then there are the times you get a vision and the end product is even more perfect in real life than it was in my mind. This beach best friend card was one of the latter.

Stamps: You're the Best Friend (Embossing Arts), Sea Shells {background}(Rubber Stampede),Sea shell {under netting} (Rubber Stamp Plantation), Starfish ( Biblical Impressions) Card Stock: Craft(SU) Other: Prismacolor pencils, Magic Mesh, jeweled sun

Here is one of the 4 cards I submitted for the Paper Crafts Idol contest. I wasn't chosen in the top 20, so I can add my cards to my blog now. I'm only a little sad that I didn't make the top ten. I just figure that God has something else planned for me to do for the next 4 weeks. I'm really proud of these cards and I need to include them in this blog because it's like a creative journal for me. I thought about adding them in one post, but I think I'll add them gradually.

The exciting part of it is that I do know someone who made the top 20. Julie Korber from Out to Impress, one of my best blogging buddies. She is a very delightful lady, not to mention her obvious talent. We need to get behind her and vote for her each week. After the judges choose the top 20, we get to vote on the next four rounds. They are working on their first challenge right now.

While I'm talking about exciting things... Sarah (Sarosa) is celebrating 7,000 visits to her blog, Encouraging Impressions. Your encouraging comment on Sarah's blog will be your chance to win some cool stamps.

WHAT? Clearly that should have been chosen...I love the mesh with the "shells" behind it. This is a winning card, but you don't need judges to tell you that.

Your sweet loving attitude towards not being in the Top 20 says SO much about you, Jacki. I will find you in heaven someday and there that little sun jewel from the card will be the real thing sitting on your crown. ;)
