Four months ago, I was so thrilled when I was informed by Northridge Publishing that my vintage card was selected to be published in the CREATE magazine. After waiting for 6 months, I still have no news of my published card and still waiting in vain for my copy of magazine. After some correspondence, it turned out that it was their mistake that I was not informed and on top of that they have gone digital!!! Should I be happy or sad??? I was really looking forward to receive the hard copy on my lap and flipping it but aiya... digi is also fine!
The stamps which I used for the card are from Waltzing Mouse, Hero Arts and Paper Smooches. Guess what? I wrote to HA but was told that they do not give incentive to digital publication! If I was not honest, I would have just scanned it and not informing them that it was digital! Sometimes, honesty does not pay off! If someone could enlightened my frustration, please tell me what's the difference between being printed in hardcopy of digital when their company name's are clearly printed on it?
I was frustrated as this is the second time that I am using HA products that my cards were published but somehow not awarded!!! Grrrr....!
Now, I am waiting patiently from the other two companies and hopefully I have better news from them. I just heard from PS that they are considering offering digital incentive? What does that mean?
Maybe I should be contented with it and stop complaining....afterall it's my hobby and I should be enjoying with what I am doing. Yes, positive thinking! I think I am happier right now.
Here is the card which was submitted......
I am going to make myself happy by stamping.... thank you for listening!
