Two Published Cards Plus A Giveaway!!

Hello!!  Today I have two cards to share with you that were recently published in the Cricut Magazine's Birthdays Idea Book.  First, I would like to thank all of you for your encouraging words and especially those who pushed me to send in my work for publication.  It means a whole lot to me that you think so much of my work and I just love to share my creations with all of you.

The first card I am going to share with you is on page 10 of the Cricut Magazine Birthdays Idea Book.  The monkey cut is from the Life's A Party cart and I used my Cuttlebug to add some embossing.  the patterned paper is from We R Memory Keepers and the sticker sentiment is from SRM Stickers.

This second card is on page 107 in the same issue.  The cupcakes are all cut from the Sweet Treats cartridge.  I added some glitter and white pen details to the border of the card.  The sticker sentiment is also from SRM Stickers.

So, what do you think??  I am always so excited to get my copies with my work in them and I have an extra copy of the Cricut Birthdays Idea Book that I would love to give away to one of you...... 

Leave a comment below this post and let me know which card above is your favorite and also if you have ever submitted for publication.  Only one entry per person, please.  I will draw a winner via random.org on Monday August 15th.  I would also like to have you as a follower or subscriber on my blog so you can keep up to date with all the fun things on Scrapping Mommy, but that is not a requirement to enter.  I am getting really close to hitting another milestone on my subscribers/followers and I will have to do another FAB giveaway soon, so send all of your friends over, too.

Thanks so much for visiting and don't forget to leave a comment to win!!

Hugs,
Amy

  2. Congrats- great accomplishment!! I like the cupcake card but that monkey card is adorable!! I really like the dimension to it. As for submitting, I haven't really yet. I've sent a few things into Scrapbook News and Review and had one published but honestly, I'd never heard of it before and since it's 100% digital, it almost doesn't feel real- nothing tangible. Someday I'll submit to CK and/or Paper Crafts, etc.

  5. It comes as no surprise to me that you were published Amy! Congratulations. Now asking me to choose between these two gorgeous cards, is like asking me to push water uphill! I love them both, but if pushed, I would choose the cupcakes. Clean, simple and very stylish.

  23. CONGRATS on publication! BOTH cards are absolutely adorable! I have to say that I like the cupcake one more just because it's more versatile in terms of cards that I would write to people. I also have Sweet Treats, but sometimes I think the cupcakes are a little bland. You dressed them up with your colors and the glitter that they look AMAZING! I'll have to try those cupcakes again!

    I've never submitted anything for publication, but I was thinking about it. I don't know if it's at the same level as other people's work, but it wouldn't hurt to try!
