Retail Therapy

I always get really, really excited when Just Cards arrives in my mailbox. I have been submitting cards there regularly for almost a year now. I get a little hopeful that by chance, one of mine will get picked up.

Volume 13 arrived today...and I tore into it right in the Post Office parking lot! Woo Hoo! 4 cards made this issue!





DH and I had a chance to Skype earlier so I shared my excitement with him! He emphatically said "That's great Babe, but how much is this going to cost me?"
Oh, he knows me so well...LOL...how 'bout some new Nesties?? :)

Congrats on getting the cards published. They are all great.

I knew my sister must have been swapped at birth. She doesn't, gasp, scrap or even card make. It is so funny how you can almost always tell the kids of a scrapper from other kids. Even my three year old will say "I'm being cute, take a picture". Too funny! Of course, I take a picture.

I'll let you know when my surprise arrives. I'm excited. Thanks so much. I need to get my surprise made for Samanatha.

All four cards are great. Thanks for letting us know the good news.
