BREAKING News--Gallery Idol Top 20!


 Someone pinch me, please!!!
I woke up to some Facebook messages and found out I am in the Top 20 for Gallery Idol!! This is my 3rd year in trying. Each year, I participated Gallery Idol and made my submission cards... and then hope for the best! Today I am living my dream right now as you can imagine....
 Congrats to all my fellow Top 20 Gallery Idols! I know these talented ladies will amaze you in their creations in the next few weeks.
It was this little card that got me in! Dr. John jokingly said that this is the WILD card that sneaked in! They saw all the other winner's cards and wonder how mine made the Top 20.... it beats me, too!It doesn't matter what my family members think any more, because I did it!
Make Some Noise
The next card that I submit will have to do with the theme "Dad"! I am thinking up a few ideas! Voting begins at noon (MDT) on Monday, June 3rd, so please come back to check it out! All details can be found here

I am so thankful for your AWESOME support and feedback in my blog and Flickr. I shall continually count on you for this Gallery Idol contest even more!  You have enriched my blog/card-making life! Off to create now...
