CARDS January Publications

Happy Thursday! I just wanted to share the two cards that were published in the January Issue of CARDS magazine:


Yummy October Afternoon with Hero Arts and PTI on the first one. Don't you just love how they did the set-up? And yummy Pink Paislee on the second:



I already shared this card a while ago when I made it for a sketch challenge. You'll find the online issue here. Lots of inspiration!

Ok, I had planned to attend my first ever Stampin Up soiree tonight. But the little girl is refusing to fall asleep. Poor sweetie! She's having a light bronchitis and the medication is keeping her awake. Don't want to leave as long as she is not sleeping. She is doing fine with her Daddy, but when it comes to sleeping she still wants me. And I would be uncomfortable knowing she is struggling still. Anyone else out there being such an overprotective mother??? Well, it might be better for my wallet anyway...


Took this one yesterday.

Have a beautiful day and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Congratulations on the published cards in Cards mag. They are lovely. Love the color combos. It was probably a good thing you missed the Stampin Up party, except that the special is still going on if you spend $50. I have always believed their stamps are first rate. They stamp wonderfully, and if you think about it you are getting great value compared tot he price of individual rubber stamps in the store. And no I have never sold SU- but I have been a consumer for many years. Take care and TFS!

Congratulations for your beautiful cards publication.

I'm not an overprotective mum, but my daughter is just an over-loving-mum-kid, which means at night she sleeps only with me, with her sweet hands in my hair (I hate to have hands, sweet or not sweet, in my hair. Both my kids do that. WHY?????), with her little blond head on my arm and with her delicious face close to mine. This sound like heaven. Just try to sleep like this for 3 weeks!!! I'm at the end of my strength, this horrible flue is just killing me.

So, I have no tip for you.
