Oh What A Lovely Surprise

 Oh what A lovely Surprise

Hi everyone, I hope that you're all enjoying this lovely Spring sunshine...well I was 
enjoying spending some time in the garden until I found a dead blackbird...and now I feel 
so, so angry because at the weekend I was sure that I'd heard someone firing an air rifle, 
well I suppose now I know that someone's taking pot shots at the birds and probably my 
little cat grrrr I just wish I knew who it was, I really can't believe how cruel people 
can be....who could do such a thing.

Anyway onto the lovely surprise that I've had...I have just purchased the brand 
new copy of Papercraft Essentials and when I got home an took out the freebies, 
one of my Crafter's Companion Bebunnie card's was on the front cover. 




I couldn't quite believe it because as most of you will already know I stepped down from 
the Crafter's Companion Design Team more than a month ago now along with the lovely Cathy Rumball, 
so I'd completely forgot that I was asked to do this magazine commission for the launch of Bebunnie.




And here I am along side my old Design Team mate Caroline Weir who's card's have also featured
 in the magazine.



And here are the four Bebunnie cards that I made.
