Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, November 2, 2010 @ 12:26 AM | , ,

Hi There! I am so incredibly excited to share some exciting news!  I have had a couple projects published! YAHOOOOO!!!! Thank you for the support and encouragement :) This in new for me in my crafty world so if you can imagine, I am still doing the happy dance! First up, is a project I made for Spellbinders™. If you visit often, you know how much I love to create using layer upon layer, emboss, sand and distress so I made this project showcasing so many Spellbinders™ products.
It is featured in the current issue of Crafts Beautiful magazine - a UK publication.

All the details and instructions can be found in the article.

Up next, is my very first card that was published in the October issue of cards magazine.
Here is my card shown in the magazine:
and here is the original photo:
If you have been visiting me for awhile, you may recall seeing this card before. I used a sketch designed by Maria Levine for a Just Us Girls sketch challenge :) Thank you Maria for an awesome sketch ;)

Thanks so much for looking & I hope you have a terrific Tuesday! I have been quite busy creating for the following upcoming dates:

***REMINDER - The Waltzingmouse November Previews begin Thursday, November 4th, 3:00 AM Eastern - Saturday, November 6th wrapping up with the DT Waltz on Sunday, November 7th at 2:00 PM Eastern

The Taylored Expressions Release will be Thurday, November 4th, 9:00 AM Eastern

Hope you come back and visit :) Be Sweet!

Congratulations, Mona. So well deserved.

As Crafts Beautiful is a UK publication I saw this article a while ago and I kept it for inspiration for when I decorate my printers tray.

Your card is beautiful. I love the colours, the layout and the shabby chic look.

Way to go, Mona! Your cards and other items are so inspiring and so awesome, always! Congratulations on your two publications! I'm surprised you aren't featured in a different magazine every week!

Debgem said...

Hi Mona

I saw that picture frame in the magazine; it's fabulous. I love the way you've used so many spellbinders sets and combined them with Claire's lovely stamps. I might try something similar this year - but it's likely to be a bit simpler! And I love the other card too. To be honest, I thought you'd already been published - but many congratulations on being published.
