Baby Girl Card for Cute Daisy May

What a sweet little sleeping girl, having her nap on the moon.................

and inside................

On Cute Daisy May this week, the challenge is 'anything goes' so you can pick your favourite card and enter it for a chance to win a blinkie for your blog and a free download. I picked this sweet little girl image, and cut a moon with the New Arrival cartridge. The sentiments are computer generated and the papers are Heidi Grace. The border was done with the martha stewart valentine hearts border punch, and the pink ribbon is a twill, also by MS

There is a blog hop over on Bitten by the Bug this week, the main prize is the brand new Stand and Salute Cricut cartridge, so hop on over there to see how you can be in with a chance of winning (I didn't join in this week, a. because I don't have that cartridge, and b. because I am a bit up to my eyes in it with my own bloggy candy thing)

I am busy with a magazine commission, working on the Christmas issue, it seems odd to be working with snowflakes in June. I have a lot of emails asking about doing stuff for a magazine. How it works is that the editor contacts me with an idea for an article, or I have been known to come up with an idea myself, we toss these ideas around via email, and when I have a clear picture of what is wanted, I start searching for supplies. All the papers/stamps etc have to be current, and available from a UK supplier, so I can't pull some paper randomly out of my stash. When that is sorted and the cards designed and made (avoiding some specific colours that don't photograph well), you write the accompanying article, again to a specific format and using a set number of words. Then I email the text, and send the cards off to be photographed, which has to be done before a tight deadline. Magazines work at least three months in advance, so it can be Christmas in June or Easter in December. Jenny Dixon the editor of Papercraft Inspirations magazine is lovely, very approachable and is good at gently telling me that some of my wildest ideas just wouldn't work! Take a look at the site, there are always freebie downloads on there, and competitions too.
