I'm a COVER GIRL at Through The Craftroom Door......!


Hi Ladies

Well I'm really excited today to be sharing the news that I've been published!!  In fact....... (drumroll please)... I made the COVER of the fabulous online magazine called Through The CraftTroom Door!  I'm still doing the Happy Dance...  as I don't think I've ever been referred to as a 'cover girl' before!  If you click on the image below, you'll be able to go straight to the online magazine.

Through The Craftroom Door is an electronic magazine packed with fabulous articles, tutorials and inspiration all for the paper crafter.  Our lovely Wendy Burns and three brand new exclusive All Dressed Up images  (below) are being featured in the current issue.  Several of the DT submissions are also included - they are all wonderful!

These three wonderful All Dressed Up digital images are currently available only by subscribing to Through The Craft Room Door.  Your subscription entitles you to 5  issues with an additional holiday issue in the November/December issue for $18.00/year. You will have access to all the previous issues, over 100 free digi's, tutorials, inspiration, prizes and articles.  Seems like a good deal to me!

For my card, I chose to use Little Bookworm.  She's just the cutest... and as it's coming up to summer time when HOPEFULLY it'll stop raining here in the UK..  I decided to put her in a meadow with the sun shining down... I do hope she's got her Factor 30 sun lotion on her arms! 
Materials Used:
Paper: Doodlebug Design Springtime
Colouring: Copics for image, Chalks for clouds
Dies: MFT Rounded Banner Stax, Joy Vintage Flourishes Grass, 
Poppy Stamps Inc Wild Flower Patch, Lil' Inkers Designs Sun
Accessories:  Hemp Cord for bow, Seam Binding, Glitter

That's all for now...  I'm going to be at a garden centre near York today promoting the children's hospice lottery that I do volunteer work for...  so if anyone is near Poppleton Garden Centre at all....... do say hello!!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting from the 'cover girl'... (autographs available - hehe!!)
