A little something called Stamping Royalty...

SOMEONE PLEASE PINCH ME!
I still can't believe it!  
 I was selected as one of the 2012 Stamping Royalty winners in the Thanks category! 
You can see the announcement on the Paper Crafts blog here.

There are no words to describe how excited I was when I got that email from Paper Crafts!
I jumped up and down in my cube at work, ran outside and screamed, and then teared up a little...  Pretty sure my co-workers think I'm nuts.  
I probably read it about 15 times within the first hour of receiving it... 
and maybe another15 times each day throughout this entire week! 

Really, I still can't believe it.
So again, someone please pinch me! 

I am thrilled and honored and can't wait to share my card with you... 
but since I can't (you'll see it in the Nov/Dec 2012 Paper Crafts issue!), I'll tell you about the strategy for the cards I did send in...

(1) Every card I sent in truly focused on stamping with almost always some cool stamping technique.  I figured, it's gotta be called stamping royalty for a reason, right?  
(2) I also really looked at my stamps and tried to use them in unique ways.  
(3) Lastly, I made sure they were executed perfectly.  

My winning card took probably 12 tries because I kept smudging my ink and getting inky fingerprints on my card.   No joke, I have the pile of fails in my craft room.

Thank you, again, Paper Crafts Magazine for picking my card.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my excitement with me.
Have a great day!
