I've been published! Woohoo!

Hello, everyone!  I can't believe it - I've been published! Two of my cards appear in the Summer issue of my favourite cardmaking publication - Take Ten Magazine. It's on newsstands now! I'm so excited! It was over a year ago, before I started my blog, that I sent a bundle of cards to Stampington and Company, with a dream that they would publish maybe just one of my cards.  Well, my dream has come true!  I couldn't wait to share the news!

Here's the cover of Take Ten Magazine, where my cards appear on page 73 (top corner) and page 74 (middle):


Here are photos I took before I mailed my cards:

What I love most about Take Ten Magazine is that it features quick and easy cards that can be made in 10 minutes or less.  Here's the lovely badge they sent me:


Thank you for letting me share my excitement!

Well done on being published Kitty, it does give you a kick doesn't it. Amazed me that they always ship a copy to you, even over to the UK - that's more than our own magazines here do.

Congratulations! I'm not familiar with that magazine - I don't think it is sold in New Zealand. Like the idea of making cards in 10 minutes or less for those times when things are a bit of a rush. Great that you were sent a badge too in recognition.

Your cards are lovely, with such a clean crisp design, so I'm not at all surprised you were selected to go in the magazine. That's a big milestone, and you're justly proud of it.
