Cards Publication

Good Morning! 

I finally can share my first publication with you.  This is the tag I created and that was choosen for the Feb. Cards magazine.

Of course it's so much prettier in the actual magazine!  :D 

I have to say it's harder than it looks to create for publications.  (I'm not complaining AT ALL) There is a a lot of work that goes into besides the actual making of the project.  For me personally, I've found that some of the calls are overwhelming to me.  There is such a high expectation of work, plus having to keep track of what you used, what you did, and whether the product is still available.  EEK.  However, this was a great self esteem boost for me.  I've created for pubs still, although some months not getting them ready in time.  And I'm going to keep at it. 

Thank you to everyone who supported me.  Locally, it's been so cool to have so many people happy for me, especially when they aren't particularly stamping peeps.  I feel so blessed to be able to live the life I live and enjoy this little hobby.  Thanks for enjoying the journey with me!!
