You Make Me Happy and a giveaway!

Hello!
Just popping in today to share a current publication with you. I have a set of 6 cards published in Issue 133 of Simply Cards and Papercraft, along with an article on the Rule of Thirds. 
So I thought I'd share one of my cards with you. You can just about see it on the front cover at the bottom… along with a peek at a couple of the others. :) I used Mama Elephant's Pandamonium stamps, and some Cosmo Cricket stickers.

Super simple card - with lots of goggly eyes. :)

And it's so fun to be published alongside some of my lovely crafty friends, including the talented Keren Baker and Isha Gupta.
Check out the magazine here - it's such good value.
And this month it comes with a free Clearly Besotted stamp set which is totally gorgeous. But as I have most of the stamps featured in the set (I love CB!), I thought I'd offer my set here as a giveaway. Just leave a comment on this post by Wednesday 11th February to be in with a chance of winning this yummy stamp set AND a selection of other mystery goodies from my stash!
Right - that's it for today.
Happy Sunday.

Such a cute card. Shame on me for not discovering this magazine, it looks brilliant. I live in a village which has a spartan stock of magazines. I will have to look it up on the Internet. I would love to win your fabulous set of stamps, just the motivation I need return to cardmaking.

Good luck everyone.
