Good evening all.i can now share my good news.the link has been in my sidebar for a while and some of you were eagle eyed enough to spot it.lol.
i was asked way back in january by the lovely carisa if i would like to create a couple of cards to be seen in her very own premier issue magazine Designed to color (click on the badge in my sidebar) and wow i was so shocked to be asked and of course i said yes.
i sent off a couple of cards in different styles and to my surprise they were both used in the magazine, with my black and white one being a double page spread.i am also now the very proud owner of a printed issue of this magazine which carisa has also signed.i can not thank carisa enough for the awesome chance of appearing in her premier issue.do get yourself over there and submit your designs for future issues, full details can be found on the designed to color blog which you can get to by clicking on the link in my sidebar.
