I Don't Always Post My Published Cards, But When I Do, They are Freaking Awesome

HA! Yup. I totally just said that. Why? Well, because this really is probably my most favoritist card of ALL TIME! (Pun totally intended.) It was recently published in Paper Crafts Magazine's May/June issue which hit newstands on 15 April. Go. Buy it. Better yet, get a subscription so you can get the extra digital content, because that pretty much rocks, too. Just sayin'. I don't usually post the cards and projects I get published, but I love this one TOO MUCH to not share! So, my friends... my card....

Tardis Father's Day Card

Umm.... yup. Totally Geektastic! If you are sitting there wondering why a blue police box would be my favorite card ever, well, you might not be a Dr. Who fan. Just sayin'. If that is the case, you should work on that. For reals. If you DID immediately know why a blue police box would be my favorite card ever, well, we can be friends. Like, for life. Again, for reals. Just sayin'. HA! I had so much fun creating this card! I cut all of the pieces, inked the edges with distress ink and carefully pieced them together. Sean helped by finding the fonts and creating the "Police Box" banner and the notification sign on the door because I'm font impaired. HA!

So, there you have it. And I can't even TELL you how excited I was when I got the email telling me they were going to publish this one!!! It's like a little piece of me got published this time! And that makes me super extra happy! Woot!!!

So, with that, my friends, I leave you!

No WAY. I've been working on a TARDIS card to sell at my & my daughter's booth at a Con, so when I saw this I showed it to her... But I COMPLETELY MISSED that it was yours. Congratulations--really fabulous card.

It is super cute, even though I have no idea what Dr. Who even is. Can we still be friends? Tee hee! Congrats on getting published!

I totally LOVED your card in Papercrafts - I stumbled across your blog just now and was all "wow, this is the lady who made the most awesome card ever!" Now I can tell you (and this is said with a smile) I am so mad at you because your most awesome card ever would take too much work for me to CASE. But seriously, to me it is a work of art! :)Traci
