Great Mail Week

A complementary issue of the June Stampers Sampler arrived in the mail this week. Funny thing about the cover (which I think is just gorgeous), at first glance I thought one of my cards had made the cover. I had submitted a card using this PaperBag Studio stamp a while back.
After looking closely at the cover and through the magazine, I saw the cards included in a two -page layout by an artist named Paula Whittaker. I really liked her work and tried to Google her name to see if she had a blog so I could tell her so.
I couldn't find her -- but I did find my card ........
It was included at t the bottom of her two page lay-out. My name was correctly given, so that was fine. My card is below. Can you see why I took a second look at the cover?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The summer issue of Take Ten came this week as well. I had a good amount of cards published in this issue. These are a few of the ones I liked the best.

One again congrats!! Beautiful cards! I didn't see either of these mags by Michael's - so I missed them. I haven't sent anything for at least a year, but it is such fun isn't it. I really love that paperbag studio's stamp, so decorative and vintage!!

Good Morning, Louise! I am still lurking out here catching up on all the goings-on when I can! I can certainly see why you had a double-take when you saw the cover of the magazine! Congrats on all of your magazine entries. They are FAB!
