Ismaki Sketch & Reader Story

I couldn't wait to play with one of my hanglars from the new Fall club kit. Thank you so much to my dear friend for ordering for me. It's been a while since I have had time to join in with Ismaki and this week they have a fabulous sketch by Kiki. I made my corner swirl by using the cuttings left from using the Fiskars punch.

My friend Deb has just called to say that she has just seen our Reader Story in November's Issue 58 of "Cardmaking and Papercraft" Magazine. How exciting and I can't wait to get my copy.
Update: Here is the page from the magazine with my reader story. If you click the picture you can see a larger copy. You can see my card here.

Before I go I just wanted to thank you all for your comments regarding Danni. She had a great time at nursery Tuesday and loves her new teacher. I stayed with her for this visit and Monday will be her big day.

Back soon with some spooky creations as my new Silly Monkey Crafts DT kit has arrived with some yummy CC Design stamps.

Have a great Thursday!

Fantastic card Nikki. I love the little button on the headband and the colours you've used!!!! Did you get your new catalogue? My next exciting SU event is Regionals because they're holding it in Edmonton - 15 minutes away. Amy will have to pour me into her car (or drive my van) and I'll have to hobble on crutches - but I can't wait - It's October 18.
Have a great day. JOAN
