CardMaker Magazine Featured Designer

Hi Everyone!

This is my 2nd post of the day so please scroll down to see my latest announcement and venture! 

If you subscribe to CardMaker magazine, you probably have already seen my mug in the "Featured Designer" article of the September issue. It was such a huge honor to have been featured!
 CardMaker told me that they will also be featuring me on their Facebook page for the last 3 Tuesdays of this month. They invited me to share one of my cards that was published in that issue on each Tuesday. 
I would LOVE to! :)

The first one I'm sharing is my "Halloween Glitz" card that can be found on page 13.

It was done with a digital stamp that I illustrated called "Autumn Friends".
The beautiful ribbon that adds the "Glitz" to the card title is Purple Glitz from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
For the rest of the supply list and the directions, please see page 13 of the September issue of CardMaker.

I have a current blog candy running that is a gift from Basic Grey and myself.
It is a "Pickadilly Page Kit" that won't even be available in stores until October! I have also thrown in some coordinating ribbons and embellishments from my stash.

For a chance to win, all you have to do is:
1. Become a follower if you aren't already.
2. Leave a comment on this post or any others that I post this month.
3. As a bonus, if you go and "LIKE" CardMaker on Facebook and tell them True :D sent you, I will also throw in a "Coloring Techniques For Card Making" book that I was a co-contributor in. 
It's donated by DRG Publishing.

The winner will be announced on September 1st.

Thanks so much to DRG/CardMaker for all you do!

Thanks also to all of my awesome followers for your kind comments and for checking in on me from time to time!

Big hugs,
True :D
