THANK YOU..................................XX

Evening all!

Just want to say a big thank you on all your lovely comments yesterday regarding my exciting news about getting my cards published in Quick cards :o). I'm over whelmed by all your lovely messages, crafters are certainly the nicest peeps around. But before you rush off to buy your copy, I think it comes out Tuesday, I must say you will only see my little creations in the Sub page. That means if you subscribe you will be able to see them, if not I' afraid you want :o(. The next two commissions are also in the Subs page, but the ones I've finished today will be in the mag for all to see, and it's a double spread!

Right enough babbling about me. Onto tonight's card and I have used one of my new stamps fromCrafters Companion "S.W.A.L.K" range. I have teamed this cute image with some lovely. but forgotten (shame on me!) papers from Wild Rose Studio "Floral" pad and I have also used my very forgotten chalks to do some shading (very, very bad girl!)

This cute couple are going into the following challenges :-
Sweet Sketch Wed # 78 ~ Fab Sketch
OSAAT # 42 ~ Old Stash, New Stash
The Crafty Pad # 100 ~ Anything goes

My Sister ~ Crafters Companion ~ S.W.A.L.K

Thank you for looking and all your lovely comments :o)

I'm sooooo pleased Stacey won I'm a Celeb last night, well and truly deserved, she was brilliant and such a lovely person. I think Ann has got to go tonight in Strictly and I felt for Matt last night in X-Factor, his poor throat :o(

Right I'm off now to link up and to get ready for the results shows and also my first GDT card for tomorrows

So take care all and have a great evening,
