CARDS Designer of the Month

Hey everyone!  So I meant to get this post written yesterday but alas the strep bug has found its way into our house.  This is our first encounter with strep and I had absolutely NO idea what the symptoms were (does that make me a bad mommy?).  I always assumed that it was a really sore throat so when Darian complained on Wednesday of a tummy ache and a slight fever I didn't think anything of it.  Same thing on Thursday.  But lo and behold the strep bug really wanted my attention on Friday and decided to give D a nasty rash that creeped from his chest and upper back all the way up onto his sweet little cheeks.  Yep you could say I was paying attention then.  I called the nurse at my doctor's office and as soon as I mentioned the rash she told me to bring him in.  Sure enough ... strep.  And apparently the rash is scarlet fever.  He's doing so. much. better. today with a good 24 hours of medicine in him.  Now I'm just crossing my fingers (and toes) that his little brother doesn't get it as well.  So far so good but we'll see what the weekend has in store for us.  ;)

Anyway I did want to share something exciting with all of you.  If you happen to have the most recent issue of CARDS magazine and you happen to flip to page 124 you may just recognize the face staring back at you.  For those of you who don't have the magazine here's a little peek for you ...


Yep!  That's me!  I was so super excited when I was asked to be the CARDS Designer of the Month for May.  I created 5 cards specifically for the feature and also shared some tips and tricks that I find helpful when creating.  I can't share the cards here on my blog since the issue is still current but what I can share is this little diddy here ....


I created this card specifically for the CARDS blog.  If you hop on over there you can see my complete supply list and some easy directions to recreate this one on your own. 

And let's make this post a little fun.  There is something not.quite.right about the information written on the first page of the designer article pictured above (click on it for a larger view).  First person who can tell me what is wrong and give me the correct information instead will win some scrappy goodies from me.  :)
