Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine Issue 159 - November

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are having a good week. My week has been a bit up and down we found out that a close family friend has died. On the positive side lots of things have been sorted for the wedding mostly the accommodation which has been worrying me.

Back in September I responded to a request on Facebook to be on the Reader's Design Team for Issue 159 of Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine. I was sent the bonus papers to print at home. This is my design.

I chose the trees paper for the background and the bold sentiment. At the botton I added some white glitter card to look like snow. I wrappred the twine round the layers before sticking them to the 150 cm x 150 cm card blank. 

I added the female and baby deer from the Deer Family die set designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. 

I cut the some of the Winter Trees, also designed by Sue Wilson, from the green bonus paper. 

Here is my card in the magazine it was quite a thrill to see it in print. I did enjoy using these papers and I have printed some more to use on other projects. 

I had fun  making this card and it is an added bonus to see it in print. 

The bunnies go home this weekend. I am looking forward to getting the spare room back. 

I hope the rest of the week is kind to you.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
