Popping in today to share with you my very first EVER published card. Getting published was a goal that I set for myself when I started this blog in December, 2008. A very sweet friend of mine has been instrumental in mentoring me and sharing her expertise and critical eye. Her guidance has been so incredibly helpful. So after a few tries with no luck, I was finally successful in having a card picked up for publication by CARDS Magazine. This card appeared in the July, 2010 issue. I don’t think I can even articulate the enormous thrill I felt when I found out that I was finally going to be published. Since that lucky day, I’ve submitted several other cards. Some have been picked up (September 2010 CARDS, and January, 2011 CARDS), and others have not. But with every card that I create for submission is a great learning experience.
This is a card that I submitted last month for a CARDS Magazine call for New Arrival cards. It didn’t get picked up, but it was super fun to make!! New My Mind’s Eye DP and a sweet onesie template designed by the talented friend mentioned above and I’ve got myself a pretty darned cute New Arrival card. Honestly, when this one didn’t get picked up, I wasn’t sad at all because it meant that I could give it away. My daughters’ friends are having a baby every day, it seems!! LOL
That’s it for me today. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great day, and that you’ll stop by again real soon.
