Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine

Hello friends
Yesterday's post went up a bit late - I don't know why Blogger scheduling likes
to give me shocks like that now and again!  Anyway hopefully this one will be timed correctly.
I'm venturing into town today to look for those sweets, thank you to those who have pointed me in the right direction - I'm getting cravings just thinking about them!

This month in Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine I'm on the cover!! 
And it's a card with a tag..I am seriously becoming addicted to tags. 
The papers are Pink Paislee - Prairie Hill and I really like the mix of colours.
I made 7 cards in total.  This one features the luggage tag, stamping, Classic Scalloped Circles and a few butterflies - it's a simple layering card as these are 10 minute makes.
I'm down at my crafty studio preparing more TV projects today as well as a few other items.
My white board has a lot of ideas scribbled on it and now it is down at the studio the boys do not get to draw smiley faces on it..sort of miss that a little!  I may have a 'home white board' set up.
Have a lovely day dear friends - I'm back tomorrow.

Hi Christine, this is a lovely card, the papers look really sweet. My copy came at the weekend and all the other cards in the feature are lovely too.

I would definately get a home white board. It is lovely when kids leave you funny drawings or messages. it makes you feel loved.

Enjoy your crafy day.

Love this card idea with the tag Christine, the colours seem more autumnal to me, not sure if anyone else agrees? Good luck with the sweetie hunt - if you fail let me know and I will post you a mixed bag of loose ones ha ha x

Love the card, will look out for the magazine to see the rest.I think I must of missed out on the 'sweet talk' but reading the other posts I found out its chocolate button's your after? My favourite's since childhood are white chocolate buttons,still crave white chocolate now - but the big bars!!
Best wishes, Carolyn x
