Mother's & Father's Day Cards Published!

I was delighted to open my May/June edition of our local South African craft magazine CRAFTWISE, to find 6 of my cards published and a whole page to myself! WoW! Very chuffed!

A special thank you to Hayley from our RSA Group for coordinating this project in record time!

These are the cards that were published.

I was inspired by a Pinterest card, so unashamedly 'lifted' the design. Thanks to the creator of the card.

The card on the right was inspired by a pad of time related paper I purchased from Country Crafts and my Tim Holtz Mini Gears set.

 I used the bleach technique on this card and a local stamp for the tools from Great Impressions.
The 'Dad' stamp was one I bought from Country Crafts and it is a Papermania stamp.

Kraft card stock is on my favorites list lately.
Perfect for the masculine card.
Just embossing with the Argyle embossing folder and a very elegant sentiment font with a bit of string and a button. Can't get simpler than that. 

Only two of my Mother's Day cards were chosen for publication and this is one. I used a Hero Arts stamp and a sentiment stamp I bought last year from Country Crafts. I colored the flowers with my Inktense pencils.

This vintage style card was one I had in my stash and fitted the bill perfectly. I love the image and so kept it as the focal point
