Every cloud has a silver lining!
I decided to make a card with the free papers from the latest issue of Creative Cardmaking (Issue 37). The papers are from the totally scrumptious Promises NitWit Collection. All purples and aquas; what's not to love lol!
I wanted to send the card in for the 'Your Cardmaking' competition. You have to make a card using the free papers and the first prize is £50 to spend in your local craft shop! I won this month and am off to spend the lolly this Sunday :) Anyway to cut my rambling short I now can't enter because the lovely editor has asked me to become part of the Creative Cardmaking team and contribute regular articles! To a normal person this is probably no big deal but to me it's like becoming part of the human race again. It's a long story; suffice it to say that having to give up work 4 years ago broke my heart. Now it feels like perhaps the Universe had a great plan for me after all!
I'll show all the pictures and go watch NCIS! Rizzoli and Isles are back next week :)
The pictures were taken in a hurry because I needed to post it! Do I still need to apologise for the photography or does it go without saying?
I love these page book cards - Edna what have you done! They're addictive! The image on the front of the card is by LOTV as is the sentiment inside the 'book'. The flowers and ribbon are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The hearts are the scalloped hearts from Spellbinders.
Ok, enough pictures! The heart on the front of the box is a NitWit topper from the magazine. It's a great magazine; the papers are good quality not printed on shiny magazine paper as in some mags. You know, like the ones you can't use because the tear and crinkle.
I'm going to enter this into the 'Anything Goes' challenge over at the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge Blog
I have rambled for England and given you all a 'death by photo' experience. We probably all need a cuppa and a biscuit now. Big hugs, Jayne xx
