Our Two Final Entries And Our Winner Is....
It's Our Celebrating MOM Challenge

Some Great News And A New Chllenge Is On Its Way Too

The fun news right now was shared by IO Design Team member Daniela Dobson at For The First Time.  She shared a 2 page publication, in the Swedish scrapbook magazine "Scrapbooking mm" with us.  The magazine owner approached Daniela to design the cards.  Way to go and congratulations, Daniela!!


Above is the cover if you are interested in purchasing it.  Below is the first page of the article using Daniela's designs. Daniela used Lg. Solid Bird and Solid Cherry Branch for both cards below.  The background on the second card was created using Cover-A-CardTM Wood Grain and the words are Blooming Spring.


Here is her second page.  On her first card she chose clear stamp set Easter Bunny for the bunny and butterfly, and clear stamp set Easter Seals for the words.  The background is Cover-A-CardTM Medallion.


Aren't those bright and cheerful cards?  Thanks again for sharing with us, Daniela!  Check out Daniela's blog, For The First Time, for more great creations and ideas, from scrapbook pages to cards, and even more.  Also, if you want a close up to catch all of the materials she used, click on the page and it will pop up in a new window.

So hey you all, out there in blogland, if you have an Impression Obsession card published in a magazine, etc.  Let me know.  We would love to give you a 'shout out' and to share your wonderful creations while we're at it.
