Fame at last!

If anyone of you bought the December edition of Simply Cards & Papercrafts, you may have seen six of my cards in there - what a thrill when I got my copy!  Lili of the Valley had an article in there and I got to make cards for it with a birthday theme using the new sweet girlies which you can find in the store here.

So, here are my six cards up close and personal!




 

Using It's My Party (an older stamp but just as brilliant!) and Promises paper pad

I also used the LOTV Handwritten Sentiments on them all.  Whew!  That was a lot of cards to make in one afternoon but I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I even wrote up all of the instructions and tips too - that took ages but made me realise how much goes into each card!

Okay, I am off now.  Apart from taking the dogs for a walk, I'm going to stay inside to keep warm and finish up my next batch of cards for the new SugarPea Designs release starting on Monday.  What a great day this is going to be - hope yours is just as good!
