melancholic

The mailman just came. And gave me a box. From Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking. *sigh*


This will be last box to come, returning some published cards and those that were in the queue for upcoming issues.  *sigh*

But peeking out from beneath the melancholy, just like the tiny bit of sun trying to poke through the never-ending cloud cover here, are warm feelings of thanks for the relationships formed, the inspiration provided and the good times had with the crew over at the mag. They didn't have to, but they sent a handwritten note with each box. Class act, eh?

Since it won't be gracing the April issue, that polka dot card made for a private call is heading over to the Dots challenge at Addicted to CAS.



Thanks for coming by. Have a wonderful day. And keep on creating!

What an awesome card !! Totally brilliant.
Its really sad to see the Papercrafts Magazine closing it doors after such a long time of inspiration to all crafter's.

I was worried when they left paper mags and went digi. Such a shame to lose them.
Your card, however, would lift anyone's spirits! Magnifique!

Such a cool idea!

What a cute card! I love that polka dot feather! Isn't it cool that PC&S sent us presents with those returned cards? And the little note (although yours has a lot more words than mine did... should I be feeling jealous? lol!). I was just flipping through Holiday Cards and More, and almost every card that caught my eye was one of yours! :-)
