Lots to see today - And something very exciting for me!

Today is super exciting here at Both Sides of the Paper.
First I want to introduce a new artist to the blog.....drumroll please.... here is the very first blogged card by Georgia my daughter! Georgia has been making cards alongside me for about 6 months and today she is a guest designer at Messy's Mini Missions which is a challenge blog just for under 16's! Georgia is 11 and doesn't have her own blog so we are showing the card here :)

Challenges for Georgia's card:
Creative Cottage - Embossing
Shellys - Tic Tac Toe (Georgia chose Flowers, Ribbon and Embossing)
Paper Pretties - Make a Square Card
Simon Says Stamp - Punch Em
Fussy and Fancy - Winter Wonderland
Bee Crafty - Christmas
Speedy The Cat's Friends - Holiday card
Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club - Use a Christmas Digi
Wee Memories - Anything Goes

Card Recipe:
Image - Edwina Elf
Paper - The Christmas Combo by DCWV
Medium - Copic Markers
Border and Corner Punch - Martha Stewart
Embossing Folder - Basic Grey for Sizzix
Flower - Hobby Lobby
Sentiment - Hobby Lobby
Ribbon - Michaels

She colored this all herself including picking all the colors and even trying a little blending! I can see me needing lots of refill inks for my Copic's! Hee Hee!

Now I have some super exciting news too.....I am being published!!!
Today I have 1 card and 1 mini album being published online!
My Pumpkin card is at Scrapbook News and Review and my Harvest album is at and I am very happy about it!
Now I don't know if I can link directly too them as I know that SNR is a subscription but if I can I will (this post goes out at 2am while I'm sleeping :))
EDITED: I found the album link at
Please be sure to come back everyday this week as there are new cards every day so plenty to see!
Have a wonderful Monday!
