Some exciting news and a card for Dad....


Have you seen the awesome sketch at the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog by Kathrin? If not make sure to check it out, it's fab! I couldn't wait to have a go so I got up early this morning while the kids are still sleeping and decided to make a Father's Day card using this adorable Henry stamp from Whiff of Joy called Dad is the best. I used some 7 Gypsies papers which I love for boy cards. Added a few buttons and some twine and that's it! I am also entering

Okay okay so what's the news right?
Well yesterday my lovely Whimsy DT Teamie Simonne posted a link on facebook showing a sneak peek of one of my cards for Whimsy published in  today's issue # 82 of Paper Craft Essential Magazine. 
I am so excited and can't wait to see the magazine! 
Here's the link if you'd like to see my card!

Congrats on your publication! That is wonderful! Your card is darling! I love all of the patterns of paper that you've chosen. They look great together; they way you've matted and layered them. I also like the woven trim and twine that you've added. They provide great interest and texture! Your little mice are so cute and you've colorized them so well. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
