Woo Hoo - I'm on the cover

When I have something in Papercraft Inspirations magazine, they always send me a copy - sometimes it is a few days later than the date it hits the stores here, and I am usually cool about it - just hoping that whatever project I made looks good on the pages.

So this month I saw the new issue in W H Smith and was about to pass by when I saw these flowers, MY flowers, peeking out at me from the cover. Of course I had to snap it up........and here it is, my flowerpot card made with some nestability dies and stamps by Heartfelt Creations that I picked up at CHA.

I was so pleased with the photography and the way the projects looked, it almost made we want to start making the cards.............oops, I forgot, I already did :)

I wish I could tell you that the gorgeous woman smiling merrily in the background is me, but I know that that would be greeted by chortles and chuckles by you lot, (did I hear cries of 'liar liar, pants on fire?) ah well, at least my card is young and lovely!


Here's a sneak peek at one of the cards inside the magazine, made with the same dies and stamps (look out for my teacher cards as well) The magazine is on sale now here in the UK, and will be on sale on the 1st July in the USA. As always, there are freebie paper downloads and competitions on the PI blog, hop over there and sign up for the newsletter
I am feeling partially human again after the evil plane-bug, and even sat rather listlessly at my craft table today - all I did was shove a couple of pieces of paper about from one spot to another then back again. Tomorrow is another day
