I made this card on a lazy Saturday afternoon and on a whim
 I emailed it to The Craft Stamper.
It is inspired by Kate Crane (The Kathryn Wheel)
and was created around the time that we were designing cards 
for our journaling challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

Low and behold....they made contact and wanted to publish it!!!
Happy Dance number 1.

It was heaps of fun to make!
The main image and sentiment are from Art Journey...
and I just can't get enough of this stamp ~ I love it!

I wont get to see it for another 2 months
because that is when it is released here in Australia.
But the girls at FSC have been keeping an eye out for me
and Avril took some pics of it for me and sent them to me.
Thankyou so much Avril x

 For now this is as close as I get to it.
So funny really.
It was a genuine shock when I realised that it was the Editor's Choice, 
and a whole page!!!
Happy dance number 2.

Happy dance number 3 will probably be in a couple of months time!

Beautiful card. You didn't use a Lili of the Valley image, so I am sorry but you are not eligible for a price. We hope to see you next time using a Lili of the Valley image.

Hugs, Nanda

It looks really cool in the mag, loved it!! How awful to have to wait so long for it to get to OZ.... The good thing is, then you can enjoy it all over again. It's a great mag this month with loads of great samples and projects, so enjoy it when it comes!
