Published piece

Hi Everyone!
What can I say, haven't posted anything for ages again. Life always pulls me away but I had to show you this piece that I got published in the Feb/Mar 2010 issue of "The Stampers Sampler" that just arrived in my mailbox yesterday. Frankly I was a bit surprised as I had submitted this piece for their bead challenge a few months ago. When I received an e-mail from Stampington letting me know they were going to use my artwork, I had assumed that it was one of the tempting templates I submitted so you can understand why I was a bit surprised that this card appeared instead. (Funny NO template results were shown in this issue. Can't remember this ever happening but maybe they didn't get enough submissions?? Not sure...) Anyways, my card is on pg. 45 and I'm really happy with how it appears on the page. I used one of my favorite Lost Coast Designs stamps and I'm a big fan of butterflies so this piece was a joy to make. Like I say to people all the time, you never know what they will publish so don't be afraid to send something in. It's soooooo much fun!

Happy Sunday:)


  1. Hi Debbie,
    I can see why this piece was published! The colors are amazing and I can see you added all the colors yourself with markers?? The bugle beads lining the big wings are so pretty and that must have been painstakingly putsy! Good job......the whole look is glorious! Great piece!
    Hope all is well with you and Fred and I am sending a hug on this deary weekend!

  2. Fabulous Debbie! I'm so glad I can click on the picture to enlarge it. The details of the card are so amazing. Congratulations!

  3. I came across your card while flipping through my issue at lunch today - you do such beautiful work! Love all those butterflies - it looks like you had fun making this one!!

  4. Hi Debbie,
    Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment at Art from the Heart, if you email me I found some links where you can find the punches on-line:

    Talk to you soon.

  5. It's true to say this was one of my favourite cards in that particular issue. The colours are beautiful.
    Yes, strange there were no results. I didn't participate in that challenge. Lynne M
