Cover Me a Vintage Auto!

HOORAY!! It's a good day!

Today one of my digital stamps was not only featured in --- but is in one of the photos on the COVER of Simply Cards & Papercrafts Magazine!! I can't tell you how honored I feel! 

This is the digital I made up. Isn't she pretty?
Great for Father's Day!

This stamp was featured on a card by the talented Squigglefly designer, Nancy Williams from 'What's On My Kitchen Counter." 

Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine is a well thought-out, beautiful magazine with tons of information in it and lots of great ideas. You can easily purchase a copy online or subscribe to the magazine at the same site. 

I make nix, nada, nothing for promoting this company, just so ya know! :)

Another thing I like is that you get something additional with each magazine. This months magazine comes with these IndigoBlu Stamps! 

Check them out! 

I first saw one of these stamps used on Lorraine's Creations. Love this card! 

Have a good weekend!
