Happy news

Hello bloggers. Another wet day here in the midlands...

Quite a long post today - hope you will stay with me till the end lol...

I have some exciting news to share - I have been lucky enough to be asked to join the wonderful design team for Simply Homemade magazine..and my first set of cards have been featured in issue 48 on sale now... 

I used some great LOTV art pad images and papers for my cards and made a matching gift box too..

 


I'm So happy how they look... It you don't have your copy yet go grab one, it's a great magazine with some fab articles and a gorgeous holly stamp set and embossing folder as the free gift.. BONUS lol..
Here are my cards 



Love the sparkle on this one.. Used go kreate dies for the mat and layering.. Punched some stars and 
added pearl snowflakes.. The sentiment I stamped using crafters companion set.. Embellished with 
dotty ribbon, lace, charm and liquid pearls all from my stash..


Again I used LOTV image and papers, embellished with organza, pearl trim, doily and flowers..

And here is the matching gift box and easel card...
