So have you picked up your copy of the November issue Making Cards?

Good afternoon everyone and what a difference in the weather again today.  It's still cold but we've got beautiful clear blue skies and the sun is out.  A lovely walk was had with my pal and her dog this afternoon, when I should really have been doing some housework.  LOL.  My mother and father-in-law will just have to take me how they find me tomorrow as I shall be at work....the craft room is going to be out of bounds!
I had a very quick few hours in work this morning, emptying the lorry and then making up some sparkly boxes for display purposes, right up my street. 
I arrived home to two very huge boxes from my Jamie Oliver party from Monday.  I know, how quick was that.  I've even got half of it delivered to friends too.  I shall have to take a picture of what I got....all very nice and can't wait to play.

Back to today and as you can see from my title I am doing a bit of blowing my own trumpet today....not something I'm very good at normally but here goes.

This is my article in the November issue of Making Cards.  I sent it off around June time so I have been sitting on my hands ever since....not an easy thing to do when trying to craft as well!  ;)

Now I can share the card in the flesh, so to speak.

For this card I have used Spellbinder dies Classic square, Fleur de lis square, Ornate square and D-Lites Medallion together with the sentiment from Hero arts, ribbon and bling from my stash.

How about that then?!
That's a nice start to a busy weekend, with dine in at work tomorrow and then visitors arriving.
I hope this weather holds up too.
It only remains for me to wish you a very happy and productive weekend. 
Bye for now and happy crafting! 

Oh I nearly forgot.  I mentioned a while ago that the first person to see my article and mention it to me would win a wee prize.....the winner is Roz Souter....I shall be getting something in the post for you next week Roz and thanks for letting me know.  x

Hello there! Beautiful card for the Magazine I am sure it will be tried by lots of people. I had a subscription for that Mag till last month and let it run out. Might just have to pop to the shops for a copy.
Have a wonderful weekend, I do hope this fantastic weather keeps for you.
