Take Ten Magazine - Spring 2014

I had a nice surprise last week.  Sonny brought in the mail and gave me a package that I was not expecting.  When I opened it up, it was the Spring 2014 issue of Take Ten magazine.  No, I don't subscribe to this magazine.  But in the past, I have sent cards to the magazine in hopes of having them published in the book.  I have not submitted any cards to them in a couple of years at least.  So I was quite surprised to receive this letter from them with the magazine.

Guess they hold on to submissions for a long time!

Cover of the magazine
 I was especially surprised to find out that not only had they published one of my cards, but THREE cards taking up all of page 66 in their monthly "Variation on a Theme."  The challenge is to create a set of cards that share a theme- color, layout, stamp set, etc. while using a different stamped image on each card.

 The stamp set that I used is a retired Stampin' Up set - Awash With Flowers.  It is a beautiful two-step stamp set.

So, that is my claim to fame for today!!

 "Congratulations on having your art published in Catch Up Issue!  We are grateful you chose to share your creativity with us and that we have had the chance to showcase your work. We hope you are enjoying your time in the spotlight!  As a published artist, you will be mailed a complimentary issue of this publication.  Please allow until the 15th of this month for the delivery of your magazine."

I received the above in an e-mail May 7 but as of yet I have not received my magazine.  So, I do not even know which card was featured in the magazine.  I sent several cards to Take Ten magazine at least 6 months ago or more.  I have had cards chosen to be published in these magazines before but it is real hit and miss whether they notify me or not.  Several times I have been leafing through the magazine only to come across one of my cards!  Surprise!!  So if any of you have the latest Catch Up issue from Stampington & Co., please check for me.

Speaking of magazines .....
