Cute Card Thursday and News


Above is my entry into this weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge. This week they would like to see Pink on your work. Not too hard as this is my favourite colour! I made a very simple postcard today to pop into one of my friends swap packages. My last few cards have been quite time consuming (even though I loved working on them) so wanted to do something a little simpler. The cute little bear is a Hanglar and the dp is from the PM Simply Elegant Paper pack. Image coloured with my Prismacolour pencils with Sansodor an paper stumps to blend.



How exciting I have my first article published in October issue of Craft Stamper Magazine. This issue hit the shops today. You can see my article here on their previewer - though it is too small to read! What is even more fun is that my friend Marlene also has an article in this issue too and we both made the front page!



Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
