New Cards for Creativity

I was asked to do some designing for Creativity magazine in the UK, in the shops now. The first card is for the designer challenge, where they send two designers identical products and you are asked to make a series of cards with them. I think the readers are asked to vote for the designs they like best, but as I am in the USA at the moment, I have no idea how to do this. If someone can give me a link, I can at least make sure I get my own vote :)
I used a handbag shaped card base by Papermania, and some rather glitzy handmade mulberry papers that were lovely to use, the other product I had to use was mirri card, not something I use very often, but I love a challenge..................

The second commission was to make some New Year cards using the very cute little Forever Friends bear stamp that is being given away with the magazine, this was a joy to use, such a sweet little image. All the papers are by Papermania, and the silver ring around the aperture is a peel off. All the products are available from Docrafts

If you want to see the rest of the cards, I heard that this edition of Creativity is being given away free with this month's edition of Papercraft Inspirations (some of my cards are in that mag. as well), so quite a deal with the freebie stamp thrown in. This was in Sainsbury's apparently, I don't know if WH Smith have the same deal. If you like them, a vote would be nice too (I have no idea how this works, but it sounds a bit scary to me, how humiliating it would be not to get any votes, sniff)
I have been busy busy with design team stuff, so lots of cards to share with you over the next couple of days, in the meantime have a lovely start to the weekend folks...........
