I’ve never submitted any of my cards for publishing in a magazine before, so you imagine how thrilled I was to see that on my very first attempt, I'd actually made it.
When I was making my New Home card for the Daring Cardmakers last dare, I did in fact make two. One went on the blog and the other card I sent to ‘Cards’ magazine but when I didn’t have a reply to my email I was under the impression that I hadn’t made it.
It was only on Wednesday when Lynda left a message on by blog congratulating me that I realised my card was in the magazine.
Unfortunately the photo they’ve used is so tiny you need a magnifying glass to see it clearly, but it’s in there all the same and it’s a start.
This is a better picture.
It’s a very simple card, just a stamped image that’s been paper pieced and mounted on a mat.
