My Card in Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine April Issue 151

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? My husband has been home so not much crafting has been done but we have caught up on lots of jobs and we have had some fun days out.

A few weeks back I applied to be on the Reader's Design Team for issue 151 of Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine. They chose 10 of us and sent us the bonus papers for that issue. Only three appear in the magazine and all of them are displayed on the Facebook page. I was thrilled, when I bought my issue, that my card was one of the ones featured.

The papers that were sent were so pretty and there were sentiments and embellishments too. I just added some dark pink card and some lace. 

I trimmed the edge off of the Thank You sentiment so that it would fit in the Lacy Oval die-cut. The flower came from the magazine.

Here is the double page spread and you can see some of the bonus papers. 

A close up on my card in the magazine. You make the card and send it to them so that they can photograph it properly.

This is a very pretty card I think I will be making another one. It is a thrill to see something you have made in print. 

I hope the rest of the week is kind to you. Just a little warning I will be posting three times tomorrow. It is not like me but three of the design teams I am on start their challenges tomorrow. So needs must. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
