I can't believe that I'm Published!

On October 17th, 6 cards from the Squigglefly DT group were published in the Complete Card Making Magazine on pages 56-59.  This was all arranged by the owner of Squigglefly, Holly Young and it was so exciting to be included in this wonderful Group!  Once we completed our cards, we mailed them to the United Kingdom to Becky Higgins for her approval and she placed them in a featured article with a Christmas theme.  This magazine is also distributed in the US so it would be so great if you could take a look at it in print!  It was interesting how detailed you had to be what with supplying a list of materials that you used and the step by step instructions on how to duplicate your card.

Now I know other groups routinely require their members to submit items for publication.  But I never considered that my little pieces of art would stand up to the scrutiny of any editors.  So, I feel very honored that my Group owner would ask me to make something to represent Squigglefly and that the publicity let everyone know where to get some great digital images.  The one that I used was "Baby Reindeer by Fawn Palmer".  Thanks for the opportunity Holly!


  1. Wow - what a fun thing! Your card is cute, cute, cute. Congrats. Hugz!

  2. Your card is just amazing Carolyn! I love the texture you added to the fur and the antlers. Your coloring is rich and vibrant. I really like the holly background you used behind the image too. I did get the printed magazine and all of the cards look great! Thanks for taking part!
