Not freshly stamped but freshly published...

Hey!

Really? The weekend has flown by already? It's true what they say: time flies when you're having fun! Although my fun didn't consist of much inky therapy this weekend, I do have some projects to share still from the February 2012 issue of CARDS magazine.

I was fortunate enough to get three projects picked up so without further ado let's kick it off with a lot of Hero Arts goodness:

Let's Talk

Next pairing a sentiment from PTI with a cute felt embellishment from Maya Road:

All Things Grow With Love

And finally, my attempt at a shabby-chic/vintagey love card:

I Love You So Much


I guess it doesn't hurt to ink up outside of your comfort zone after all! A huge thanks, CARDS for featuring my work, and as always, thank you for stopping by today! I'll be back later this week to lift the trap on some exciting news I've been sitting on for what seems like ages - can't wait! *grin*

Catch ya later!
