I can now share my very exciting news with you and tell you that one of my cards has actually been published in a magazine! It's all down to All Dressed Up being featured in Complete Cardmaking Magazine, the UK's first magazine dedicated to digital crafting. Each issue comes with a CD ROM packed with digital goodies including papers and images.
This latest issue (#51) contains 5 digital papers and 9 digital stamps from All Dressed Up, 2 of which are exclusive to the magazine.
As one of the Dressy Girls I was asked to make a card for the magazine using one of the digital stamps and as you can imagine, I jumped at the chance.
Now you guys all know how much I faff around with my cards trying to get all the bits in exactly the right place. So, you can imagine how long it took me with this one knowing it was actually going to be published! I walked away from it and came back to it quite a few times but I'm happy with the end result - phew!
I used pretty pastel shades to complement the cute image - my fave combo of pink and green in fact!

The rest of the cards created by the Dressy Girls for the magazine will be fatured on the All Dressed Up blog over the next few weeks and you can buy the magazine from Moremags, Morrisons, Tesco, Sainsbury and Hobbycraft.
I really wanted to get a copy of the magazine to show you as well but haven't managed to get my hands on it yet... so you may hear about this again when I do!
