Hi everyone

I am here today to share my news with you.  I was both shocked and excited to receive an email from the Editor of the lovely Papercraft Essentials Magazine asking me to do a commission for them.   This was to be part of  a Pull out and Keep feature for Issue 90 which has now been published.  I am not allowed to Blog my cards for six months yet but can show you a copy of the magazine.

Well, I was overjoyed when I received my copy not just because my creations are published BUT one of my cards is featured on the front cover!  How proud am I!  AND in the back, where the following month's magazine is advertised one of my cards in next months issue (91) is shown too.

I have submitted 3 commissions so far, so should have more cards published in Issue 91 and 93.  AND I am loving it!

So, this is the magazine, and one of my cards is on the front.  It is available for sale in the shops now.

A huge thank you to all my followers for such lovely support and comments, and a very warm welcomer to my new followers too.

I am one happy bunny!
