(if this post doesn't belong here, feel free to move it)

Hello ladies,

I was just too excited about this and had to share it with all you ATC lovers!

Back in the August issue of "Get Creative" magazine, they held an ATC cometition where you had to use at least 2 rub-on elements and at least 1 metal item on your card. At the time, I was in 3 ATC swaps here on Craftster and decided why not enter while I had heaps of supplies everywhere  Wink

I was at JoAnns last night and was on my way to the checkout. I happened to pick up the recent copy of "Get Creative" (Jan/Feb 2007) and was leafing through it. Lo and behold on page 60 it says, "And the Winner Is..." and there's a picture of my ATC for 3rd place! They never contacted me or anything so it was a complete surprise!

The winner got a 1 year subscription to the magazine. I'm not aware that I won anything for 3rd place, but it was enough for me just to be chosen Smiley

I will post a photo of my card later this afternoon when I get home from work.

Thanks for letting me share, I had to tell someone!  Grin

Okay, here's a picture of my ATC. Its called, "Morning".

The rub on elements are the butterfly (under an acetate sticker) and the flower in the lower left...which is two-layered: the bottom is on the card and the top layer is held on by a tiny brad so its able to "spin". The metal element I used was the paperclip on the bottom that holds the "rise" portion of the card, which is dtachable.



Thanks everyone Smiley

Wait a minute.  You found out you placed third when you leafed through the magazine in the checkout line and saw your card staring back at you?  That doesn't happen in real life!  Cheesy

So, did you tell the cashier in some shocked, stammering way?  'Cause I totally would have.

The card is so "happening".  I still don't understand why you didn't win anything. It's not like the magazine is free.

I just have to say this: My mom picked up that magazine this weekend (we've never seen it in town before) and I was leafing through it this weekend and seen the ATCs... and I thought yours was really nice!! How weird is that.

Congrats on winning!!

I tried expressing my excitement about being in CRAFT magazine back in August to one of the cashiers and she thought I was wierd. It seems all the people at my Joanns are snobs!
So...I didn't bother this time and thought I would just hold off until I could share it with you gals  Grin


Thanks so much for the comments everyone. I haven't found ONE other place on the internet where I can come and read something from a group of strangers and instantly get a smile on my face! I'm definately proud to be a member here  Kiss <3

Maybe she assumed you were lying.  Wink  People in retail get used to hearing all kinds of wacky stories from people. 
I, however, decided to buy a copy of CRAFT when I was swapping with you and I found out you were in it.  I look at it, and I think, "I 'know' her!"  Ha. 

I think it would be awfully difficult to contain my surprise, if nothing else, if I'd seen my own work in a magazine unexpectedly.

When I told the lady about being CRAFT, I opened the page and pointed to my tote...I don't think if I would have walked in there and said I designed the Joanns logo would she have been any more impressed. She reminded me a lot of the guy in the Clear Eyes commercials! Monotone, exressionless and bland  Tongue

That's a pretty card, Modus!  I agree that you should at least get the issue with your card in it free (even if they had 10 top places, it wouldn't cost them much to do it).  Especially since it looks like they're going to sell at least a dozen extra copies just because your card was in there.  Smiley

I've purchased Threads magazine several times because someone I "know" from online wrote an article in it.  If only my neighbors were as cool as the people I know online.  Wink
