A simple card for the man in your life, and my first magazine craft!

For the last few days, I've been checking the mail. A lot. I've been driving to bookstores and craft stores to check out the magazine shelf, trying to get my hands on one of these.

Today, I checked the mail and got a sealed envelope with my name on it, with this lovely little mag stuffed inside. Finally!

Early this year, I submitted a couple cards to Paper Crafts, based on their call for submissions requesting masculine cards. I was hoping to do something with these random playing cards we've had around the house for quite some time, and I came up with this simple little design.

And, what do you know...they loved it!

My first card in a magazine

The spread...

Paper Crafts May/June 2011 issue

Next month, I'm going to be doing the same eager song and dance, waiting for Cricut Magazine to come in the mail. I've got a Father's Day card published there that I can't wait to share! But I'll "tie" to keep it a secret.

Are any of you sewists out there also paper crafters? I still consider sewing my first love, but sometimes it's fun and even challenging to switch it up.
