Gifts for the Artists in the Spotlight

I'd like to offer those artists, whose artwork is published in specific magazines, a reward for using the Quietfire Gentle Thoughts Rubber and other items from the byhand Products line. There is one reward per issue at this time. You will need to have credited Quietfire Design in print and supply a photo/scan of the artwork and text with the credit. I'll be absolutely over the moon and will send you on a $25 shopping spree through the Gentle Thoughts Rubber Stamps.

Qualifying Publications:
Just Cards (have you seen the Quietfire ad?)
Stampers Sampler
Take 10
Somerset Studio (or other Stampington publications)
Rubberstamp Madness (have you seen the Quietfire ad?)
just check with me for others that may qualify.

Create without Limits!

My gift to you this Christmas!
