Have been published ! ! !

Nikky over at Polka Doodles had said a while back that 2 of my cards were going to be published but have to be honest and say, wasn't 100% sure when ! ! ! That'll teach me not to read Nikky's instructions more carefully . . . sorry Nikky! Anyhow the 2 cards appear in Complete Cardmaking #21 and are part of a 5 PAGE feature on Polka Doodles . . . . WAY TO GO NIKKY & KRIS ! ! !

Both cards are made using the FAB "Not for Girls" double CD; the first card featured is this one and don't you just love this Jazz image? I have layered it several times (although photo doesn't show it !!!) and have also used the image on many a card too. It comes in loads of different colours which is fab and also some gorge music papers too !

The second of my cards featured is this "tongue in cheek" robot one. The robot's expression is just so mischievous that I had to do a silly card (!) with it. The alphabets & backing paper are also from the "Not for Girls" CD.

As you can gather am a little chuffed with myself and loved seeing them on the gloss page of the magazine . . . my really early Christmas present. Many thanks Nikky for thinking that my work was good enough to be published and for also showing my DT bits on TV via Create & Craft - hey, hey gotta bask in my 15 minutes of fame now ! lol All the girls on the Polka Doodles DT make such inspirational projects that it has been a pleasure to "feed off" that creative vibe . . . whoops . . . anyone would think I was giving a thank you speech at an awards ceremony . . will be quiet now . . . honest !

Off to make some jam tarts and brownies . . . well should say, tidy up after the boys have made them ! All I can say, thank goodness for "dishwashers".

Take care and if you weren't aware, Santa is going to be here really, really soon,
