Yah.......I’ve made it to print……at last!

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.

Well done Sue - what an exciting thing to happen - and clever Lynda to send up the flares!

The card is just so lovely I'm not surprised they printed it - just surprised they took so long!
