I can finally exhale: the magazine is in the mail and uploaded for demonstrators to view online, so I think it’s safe to tell you that this card won the November Art Contest for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators in the United States and Canada. It appears (with a little story and my picture) in the November issue of Stampin’ Success, our demonstrator magazine.
Being published was my goal last year, but of course I only submitted an entry once or twice, so the odds weren’t very good! When I got the email telling me I had won, I actually was squealing uncontrollably! Poor DH didn’t know what hit me. I couldn’t stop grinning!
I originally made this card for the Stampin’ Addicts blog hop back in August. While I was at it, I made another to submit to Stampin’ Up! for the monthly contest.
I am inspired to submit my work elsewhere!
