Stamp It! Cards 2010

Well I can't say I'm not ecstatic to write this post, because I totally am. A lot of times I refrain from talking about getting published here on my blog because honestly I know what it feels like to not get published. However I decided to post about my first ever published card to encourage you to stick with it. Let me tell you it is work, and you will get disappointed (remember my old SWSWSWMO (some will, some won't, so what, move on)). However, if this is something you want you can make it happen. Really.

So here it is my first pub:

And honestly the photographers for the magazine make it look even better, so you'll have to check it out there as well here. It truly is one of my favorite issues in awhile, and I promise it's not because I'm in there. It's really that good!


And while you are there you should  buy Elizabeth Kartchner's new book. I couldn't sleep at all on the plane thanks to it. I literally took notes. So good. And she's so cute in person.
