Today is an exciting day! I just received my issue of the Spring 2008 Just Cards magazine. My "Gone Fishing Birthday" card is on the cover (!!!!) AND I have 3 cards of mine total in this magazine! This is so exciting for me, as this is the first time I have actually seen my work in print. I know I have a card being published in another magazine in May, but I haven't received my copy of that magazine yet.
Here's the cover. My card is the bottom right one with the fish, fishing boat & fishing hat!
Pg 14 Daffodils
pg 72 Gone Fishing Birthday
pg 109 Thank you Rose (also seen on pg 105)
I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! I HAD NO IDEA! I submitted these cards back in December. I thought they would contact me if they decided to use them! What a wonderful surprise today. I am so excited! I'm doing the happy dance!
I originally made these cards to sell at a craft show in December 2007. The weather was really bad the day of the show (our first snow storm of the season) so the show didn't do very well overall. I had so many cards left over that I decided to submit one of each design to this magazine. I still have many of these cards for sale if you are interested in purchasing them. You can see them here in my Etsy shop, or you can contact me here for more info.
Thanks for looking. I just had to share my excitement!
More house stuff tomorrow.
