More poppies and I have been published!!



























My daughter is home from University this week and I have been really busy with her, so not a lot of time for crafting.  This is a card I made for the recent spring card exchange organised by Cheiron over at the Hero Arts Flickr group.  This is the card I made for Sandra in Canada, she emailed me today to say that it had arrived so I can now show you.  I used that lovely poppy image from Hero Arts which I coloured with my copic markers.  The background has been stamped and embossed  with the Italian Poetry Background and then distressed.  I then cut it out with my Wonky Rectangle die and added some pearls.

Last month I was approached by the editor of Papercraft Inspirations and asked if they could feature one of my cards in their July issue, of course I was thrilled and immediately sent of a photograph and waited patiently for the issue to reach the shops.  Imagine my surprise when I noticed that the card featured next to mine belongs to one of my blogging friends Virginia.  Here is a scanned image, not brilliant I am afraid but my card is bottom left.






































Hope you are having a good week.
