I'm a Cover Girl!

No, not a CoverGirl....I've landed my first magazine publication cover!  I've known about it for awhile, but I didn't want to say anything until I actually got the issue in my hands.  Today was the day it came! (I've been so patiently waiting!)


Yeppers, that box is mine! Yay!  Now I can check "magazine cover" off of my infinitely long list of things to do in my life :)

While I'm here, I've got a Valentine's Day card for my husband (good thing he doesn't read my blog...)


It's for my husband because we both love video games, and usually a pixellated heart is used to help you determine your HP (the amount of health your character has in the game).

I used my trusty paper cutter to make those vertical strips to weave the ribbon through, so this card is headed to the Moxie Fab World for the cutting and trimming challenge!  (I might try to upload a clearer pic of it if I can)
