Some really exciting news!

You can imagine my surprise when, completely out of the blue, I discovered an email in my inbox from Laura Dougherty, Editor of Creative Cardmaking & Creative Stamping Magazines.  She was wondering if I would be interested in joining her design team and creating a few projects to be published in her titles.

Well, the big day arrived yesterday and my first commission was published in Creative Cardmaking Magazine.


I was commissioned to create 5 mother's day cards that can be achieved within a 20 minute time limit, I was also given a colour scheme to use - this is what I came up with.




I will share the actual cards with you over the next few days.

Make sure you pop in tomorrow as I will be announcing the winners of my 1000 Posts Candy.

Thank you for visiting today, your company is much appreciated.
