Happy News!

I had a pleasant surprise when I logged in to the CardMaker magazine Card Swaps message board this morning! This is a great group of ladies I discovered quite by accident back in April, at that time they were in the middle of a fun crop and I jumped right in and haven't looked back! We just finished another crop, the much acclaimed Christmas in July Crop, last week. It was tons of fun and I have never seen so many amazing was just an awesome week! Anyway, back to that happy news I discovered this morning...I logged on and found out that I was a random winner of the Joy to the World challenge hosted by Tracy! So, I wanted to share that card with you today. It was a new style card for me called the joy fold...very easy to do, but not something I'd have just up and done on my own. So, I really appreciate the challenges on the message board since I tend to stick in my top fold/side fold 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" rut if I don't have someone "pushing" me to branch thanks to Tracy, I'm a winner and a brancher!! The photo on top shows the card closed and the photo on the bottom shows the card partically open. Oh, and I should probably mention that the stamped image and ribbon I used on this card came from card kits I received in a card swap at the message board. There's just always something fun and exciting happening with the gang at Card Swaps!
