Heartfelt Wishes

Happy Wednesday!
Just thought I'd share some information on a couple of recent publications.
I took a long break from submitting when I was pregnant, and even now am struggling to find the time to make more than one or two cards for current calls, and very few are getting picked up. I miss this. I loved it when new calls went live. I found them so inspiring. And getting happy mail... brilliant. Always made my week!
So, recently, I had a few cards published in Paper Crafts Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters - a special edition of Paper Crafts magazine.  Here is one of them:
Fun with paper scraps and my sewing machine. And great for using up little bits left over from other cards. :) (I can;t remember what heart punch I used, so have linked you to my new fave below...)
I also had 2 big projects published in Party Ensembles, another Paper Crafts special issue.  this one is an actual book. I was so excited when it came in the post.  Me, published in an actual book!!! :)
So if you are new to card making, or a bit shy, I encourage you to submit. You never know when it will be your turn.
Have a fab day.

Your card is stunning Lucy! I missed seeing your cards so much while you were pregnant! It's so nice to see your cards again, both on you blog and in print!

Wow this is really cool.I LOVE hearts (and butterflies) this is so gorgeous I may even lift it for a scrap book page as well as a card. Thanks so much for the inspiration. I think you are amazing still being able to create with a little one, so kudos to you!
