crafty day....

Sunday, 20 April 2008 - - 1 Comments

I managed to find some " me " time yesterday and made 2 more cards other than my Tilda & Co


This week ive actually managed to make 5 cards, which is a first for me at the moment as i seem to always be busy ( the OH knows this far too well!)

Well i cant show you all 5 cards, as 2 of them are for 2 different magazines,
Im being published!!!!
They contacted me out of the blue one day and asked if i could take part showing off a card i made using a stamp from my shop, so of course i was hounred to be asked and made a card ( male themed!!! arghhhh nightmare but i did it )
I posted the card & stamp off, and then i got email in the morning to say they had received it etc, Within a couple hours i got contact from the " sister" company of the orignal craft magazine, asking if i could send another stamp & another card in for them. but this one has a twist i had a day to get it done in! as they needed it asap for the photoshoot.
so i rushed around and managed to get the card done and in post on time yesterday morning so fingers crossed they receive it tomorrow(monday).
So thats my little bit of fame, being published into 2 magazines! not sure how big the spreads are going to be lol could end up being a 1 inch square with piccy of my card for all i know. but im pleased to have been asked and i enjoyed the challenges.
Will show off the cards once the magazines are out, First ones due out next month.woohoo.

right enough of the rambles!

Here is 2 of the cards i done Yesterday.



my grundy card... ( im really into grundy greens/browns dark colours at moment)

Gorgeous cards Donna. I love the grungy look too. It's taken me a long time, but I'm finally converted!
