A New Arrival

OK, so I thought I'd share one little publishing tip... like I said, I am definitely no expert.
Get to know your magazine.  Check its style.  See what the cards in it are like.  You're much more likely to be successful if your card fits in with the magazine's style.  If you see lots of stickers in the magazine, use stickers. :)
So - here's another card you can find in January's CARDS magazine.  I do so love Hero Arts' Sweet Girl Digikit...  I may have shared this once before... but hey ho!

Such a simple card.  And fun to make. :)
More tomorrow...
P.S. I was feeling a bit down today, but reading the comments on yesterday's post totally cheered me up.  Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.

Congratulations Lucy on being published. Can I ask you another question, how do you get your copies of the American card magazines in England?

Great card, Lucy. Love the outside corners being rounded off. I suspect the floodgates have opened for you, now that you have breached the waiting void. Your cards are phenomenal:o)
