Published in Take Ten Summer 2016 - Coming June 1

 I received the Summer 2016 issue of Take Ten today.   One of the cards that I had made for a previous challenge was picked to appear in the pages of this magazine.  I love this cover!   Isn't that a darling card they chose for the centerpiece?  I am always inspired by the many artists that get published in each issue.  It is amazing to me that there are so many artists with so many ideas and I have never any two remotely alike.  I love the challenge of trying to put together a card in 10 minutes.  I never throw anything away that I stamped or started for another project.   It may just be the thing needed to quickly put together a Take Ten card!
This was a very quick card to put together.  I used a line of paper from Scenic Route by Sarah Milne.  All of the sheets I have are double-sided.  Several have sentiments printed on them and I used one of those here.  I cut a panel from the printed card stock and layered it onto a card.  I adhered a ribbon across the lower half of the card.   Then I punched three circles from a coordinating card stock.  I used glue dots to attach a gold butterfly to each green circle.  I stamped the word "SOAR" onto the striped circle and attached them as shown on the upper half of the card.
        I am always thrilled to received a magazine from Stampington & Co!  I feel very privileged to be published in any of the magazines.  Thank you, Devon Warren and staff for putting this magazine together for us.


  1. YIPEE!!! I am so thrilled for you. Your art deserves to be published.
    Sharon, so glad you shared your news as I won't receive this copy. It will seem strange as it will be the first issue I haven't received for quite some time. I knew the bubble would burst at some point!!!
    Gorgeous creation - you are soaring :)

  2. Thank you, Lynne, for your best wishes. I really didn't think I would be published in this issue as it has been a while since I have submitted specifically to Take Ten. The card that is published was actually sent in during the time I was submitting for guest artist. (Although, looking at it, it could have been for a submission on a challenge in Stampers' Sampler.) I'm surprised you're not published in all their magazines as your work is so beautiful and versatile.
    Thank you for visiting my blog!

    Best to you,
