How exciting is this - I have been published!!!


Some weeks ago Karen at Sugar Nellie asked me if I would make a card for her with the Daisy stamp. This is one of my favourite stamps so certainly was not a problem at all for me. The only instructions were that it needed to be a summer themes card and it was for submission to a magazine.

I had completely forgotten about it until Friday when I was in WH Smith and went to look at the craft magazines. I could hardly believe my eyes, not only was there a whole page for my card, but it also was on the front cover of the Stamping Essentials magazine which comes free with Papercraft Essentials this month and my card also appears on the back page of the give away papers booklet.

I have only jsut noticed that on the Sugar Nellie advert at the bottom of the page there is another of my cards - the one with Hamish the Rugby Player.

I have checked my camera and have found some pictures that I had taken of the card before handing it over.

Well I suppose I had better try and come back down to earth now and get some tidying up done in my craft room as my daughter is coming to stay tonight and I need to hide away the bits and pieces that I don't want her to be tempted to help herself to!!!
Have a great weekend.
