A couple of cards and a little bit of News!
It has been a crazy couple of weeks for me with School Panto, parties, trips (58 children to see Santa and learn about Victorian Christmas traditions) and Christmas fair, and I also have about 7 colleagues with birthdays in December!!! I needed a card quickly, so got out some favourite ink colours, ink dusters and some inkylicious stamps (Summer Morn) and made this.
On to my news. A couple of months ago I was contacted by the editor of Creative Stamping and Creative Card making magazines to see if I would complete some commissions for them. It fell perfectly during half term and so I said yes! My first set of cards will be featured in issue 22 of creative Stamping (on sale 16th January) and the second lot in issue 23 (on sale 27th February). I will show you a sneaky peek nearer the release date and a few of the cards I made.
Spare a thought for Santa this year. I witnessed children asking for a wand that does real magic and a real life unicorn, not to mention the real rainbow pony and a gerbil that can talk!!! Not a single child asked for anything electronic, and there were the very modest requests too, such as a snakes and ladders game, a pink teddy and some football socks. It was magical the way that Santa appeared on the roof of Beaumanor Hall in Leicestershire, and every child believed (and maybe one or two adults too, lol)!!!
Right, I am off to enjoy the first evening of my two week holiday.
Thanks for looking!
