Can ya beat this?


A complementary issue of Stampington's Catch Up issue arrived yesterday. I expected to see a card or cards I'd submitted a while back. But I was astonished to see a card I submitted almost three years ago! Can anyone beat that? I've seen posts for a year to almost two years, but nothing approaching almost three years.
I checked my old issues of Stampers Sampler and found I had submitted the card below (which is cut off because of the way it was photographed in the magazine) for a challenge for spinner cards which was due August 15, 2006. Which means I was probably working on it in May or June of 2006.
The unfortunate thing about showing card on it's own is the spinning concept is entirely lost. When you spin the wheel on the side of my card it showed pictures of different female images (ones I thought fit the femmes fatale theme.)

Hi, Louise! I have been lurking on your blog for about three weeks - after seeing you published in so many zines!! I am always drawn to your cards when I see them!

In 2000 I sent some cards to Scrap 'n Stamp and had decided they were not going to use them. At the time, I lived in Elyria OH. Then I moved to California, Colorado, and back to Canton OH. The cards were published in 2005!!! And, they sent my complimentary zine to the correct address in Canton! What a surprise!

Love your blog! Joy

Isn't that funny!? It might be a record. Very cute card!

Three years,,,wow, I also noticed that some of the cards used in the issue are from quite "old" challenges too. I am wondering if this means they have to go that far back to find material to publish,,,aren´t they getting enough of new entries? Just thinking out loud...

Wow--congratulations on being published, even though 3 years later! I guess they keep things on file, don't they--interesting!
