Published/Tag Tuesday/And a Little Coincidence




The newest Stampers Sampler arrived in this week's mail and I was happy to find a few of the items I submitted for their Christmas challenge inside.  


One of the items included was this tag you may recognize from a Tag Tuesday challenge.  I am pretty sure it was for the colors of Christmas (Pink & Brown) series we did last year.
I wonder if there are any other Tuesday Taggers out there who might submit their tags for publication?
From the ones I've seen submitted for Tag Tuesday, they are certainly publication-worthy.



I was also thrilled that one of the cards I submitted (St. Nicholas card above) shared a page with the very talented Debbie Kaste.  (She created the angel tag above.) If you are a fan of the Stampington publications, I am sure you have seen her work in Stampers Sampler and Take Ten.  In fact, she recently was the Guest Artist in Stampers Sampler.
Which is how I knew what she looked like.
And how I knew it was Debbie when she walked into the scrapbooking store I was at recently.
That's the coincidence part of this post.
Debbie visits my blog occasionally so she knew who I was when I introduced myself.
We had a wonderful little chat and it was fun getting to know a little bit about each other.
  


Above is another card of mine that was published in this edition of Stampers Sampler.
ETA:  So I've come to find out that the beautiful book on the cover was created by one of our Tuesday Taggers, Tracy Evans.  Congrats to you, Tracy!

Great, Louise! I haven't subscribed to SS for some time now....I became disenchanted with them. But I always regret that decision when people like you are published! Congratulations!

Congrats on getting your Beautiful cards published, Louise. It was sooo much fun meeting you in person at the scrapbooking store:) Thank you for your kind words on my artwork but yours certainly shines!

Congrats to Tracy too. LOVELY cover. P.S. I voted for that one when I received the 'postscript' e-mail awhile back;)
Have a great weekend!

Congratulations, Louise!!! And how exciting that the cover item is from one the Tuesday Taggers--wow!!!
Is it difficult to submit things to them? I have a tag I'd like to send, but do they need the tag or a picture of it...sure wish I knew.

Louise, so well deserved. Agree with Cynnie, you are incredibly popular at Stampington & co. For me, it is such an honour to share my 2 cards alongside yourself and my friend Debbie. Yes, we should all take you up on a challenge to submit our tags!! Congratulations, once again. Lynne M x (Moncrieff)
