Hope you are having a lovely weekend so far.
We had a lovely day at the Wedding yesterday and between Mike and I we managed to get some great photos too!!!

Can't Believe It........

Really can't believe that I have just seen one of my cards in the 3rd edition of Simply Homemade magazine!
I made a card for my Mum with the Molly Bloom Stamp set that was the free gift with the first edition of the magazine. I really liked the way the card turned out so decided to email it to the magazine.  I had not really given it another thought and then saw the magazine this morning and decided that the free NitWit collection paper and the buttons will always come in handy.   I have just had a quick flick through the magazine and there on  page 10 is my card!!!!!

And here is the card again!!

Thanks for stopping by, off to make a cup of tea and look at the rest of the magazine.

Have a lovely afternoon.
See you all later with a new card hopefully.

For the bow i have used seam binding and bakers twine.
The sentiment on the smaller tag is Hero Arts.
