A card!

Hi My Friends

I hope your week is going well. My sweet hubbie is leaving town bright and early tomorrow to head to Washington D.C. for a conference on ensuring healthy churches at Mark Dever's church. He's very excited. But he's being picked up at 5:30 for goodness sakes, so we are going to be heading to night night real soon. He's going to be gone until Monday night :( I was single for a long time before we met and got married, so I'm used to being home alone. I just really love having him around. I know I'm going to miss him. I do have some fun plans to pass the time... A slumber party with my BFF from high school for one:)

Anyway, tonight I'm posting a card that got rejected by CARDS magazine's February submission. I still like even if they didn't consider it publication worthy. Do not feel bad for me though because they did accept two cards that I submitted, and I'm thrilled about that. And I haven't mentioned it previously, but I'm also having two cards published in January. I really have debated about saying anything because I do not want to seem like I'm boasting. I've seen others post their success, and I never thought that they were boasting, so I said what they heck, I'll share. So many of you are my buds, that I want to share my excitement with you.

Geez, I'm sure you are saying, onto the card, why don't you... So without further ado, here it is:

Have a great day friends. For those of you who signed up to swap, I'll send out some deets tomorrow:) I cannot wait.
