Moxie Fab- Household Item Challenge #2 & Good News

Hey everyone! Well I decided to play again in the Moxie Fab Challenge! We are to use a household item, and I figured everyone has a door or maybe... a few at home! :) So I had to think of a sentiment to go with a door, so I came up with... "God Never Closes One Door, Without Opening Another One!" Which is very fitting for me today! Well, I can officially say that none of my cards that I submitted were picked for the Paper Crafts magazine. I was a little upset, because I did spend alot of time on them, but maybe they weren't what they were looking for this time! I will have to try again next time! :) But, like my card says "God Never Closes One Door, Without Opening Another One!" Well, I received an email from CARDS magazine on Saturday, saying they wanted to publish one of my cards that I submitted to them! :) WOO HOO!!! It will be in the February 2010 edition! So I am VERY excited about that!! :) I wanted to leave you with a quote I heard on the radio today! "My disappointment will only sting if I let it!" So I will not let it sting me! God is so good, and gives me way more than I will ever deserve! So, Thank You Jesus, for always Blessing me and forgive me if I ever get ungrateful!
So I guess ya'll want to see the card now, right?! Here it is! :)
Supplies:
Cardstock- (Georgia Pacific)- white, (The Paper Company)- kraft & black
Patterned Paper- (Basic Grey)- Infuse Collection
Stamp- (All Night Media)- woodgrain
Ink- (Versamark)- watermark
Ribbon- (Offray)- black
Accessories- clear embossing powder, (EK Success)- embossed scallop punch, sentiment printed from computer, hand cut door, silver brad, transparency for window
Have a Blessed night!

Congrats, girl!! How exciting -- the pub deal! Your card is gorgeous and ya know, the sentiment is so so true. Been there and it's so amazing each time I think about each and every one of them!!!!

This card is cute! Thanks for your comments on my blog. Glad I'm not the only "weird" one out there, haha! That's so awesome about your card publication!! I really want to try and get some of mine published, I just keep putting it off because I want to get some new stuff for creating. But because of financial difficulties I have not been able to get any new stuff. So my time will come!!
