A Ruby Wedding Anniversary and Some Magazine Projects Sneaky Peeks

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.

How's your week going? Good I hope. 
Happy to report that I am feeling a bit better and that my nasty abscess has almost cleared up with the super strength antibiotics the Dr prescribed - thank goodness as I was told it may have needed to be surgically removed - ouch!!!!

I have been having a sort out in my little crafty haven - I think I have finally found the perfect die storage solution - well for me anyway. I'll take some photos today and share them with you later.

But first I would like to share another recent make using a scrummy new heart die I treated myself to from the Crafter's Companion January sale - I thought it would be perfect for this Ruby Wedding Anniversary card requested by my MiL. 
I also used the gorgeous 'Heartfelt' Design Papers from LOTV - sadly now discontinued but for every negative there is always a positive and you can get these papers as a digital download from Raspberry Road  available here so you can have as many of them whenever you want :o)

Oh and before I go a shoutout for the new issue of Papercraft Inspirations that's in the shops today - I'm thrilled to be sharing three lots of projects this time and here's some sneaky peeks 

3 Looks with Washi Tape 

Birthday Candles Cards for the All Occasions section

And a Moving Cards Masterclass

I do still have to pinch myself when I see my makes in print.
I know I am so very lucky to have this opportunity and I am very grateful each time a commission comes through - thank you Papercraft Inspirations.

And THANK YOU for all the lovely comments and support.
Have a fabulous day.

I'll be back later with photos of my new die storage system.

Oooo what a simply stunning Ruby Wedding card and i'm not surprised you bought that heart die and you are so right, i loved the LOTV papers, as Alan won't let me print them, due to the cost of our inks for the printer :-(

Congrats on being in a magazine and such lovely cards too, Luv Sam x
