I have been published!!!!

Happy Friday blogging friends and a special welcome to my new friends. Great to have you here, hope you will visit often.
Indeed a happy day here in South Africa as today is a public holiday...Reconciliation a long weekend for many and also the start of the major holiday season. Factories have closed, schools are closed and many industries are shut for the holidays, so a mass exodus of people over the next few days to the coastal resorts and various inland holiday places.  Our area becomes a pleasure to be in, less traffic, and more relaxed time.
Also a happy day as I have received a copy of the pages in Papercraft Inspirations...a magazine from the UK, in which I have had a card published. I got a call several weeks ago asking if I would give permission for my card to be featured on their "Beautiful Blog" what do you think I said...YES!!!! The magazine has been posted to subscribers and goes on sale next week in the UK.
This is the card I made for a challenge in November at DS4J, using one of their images.

Full details of the card can be found Here Thanks for stopping by and I do appreciate your lovely comments.  By the way only 5 sleeps before our holiday...can't wait....but so much to do still.
Take care and have a great weekend.
