Final Chocolate Baroque Challenge and more exciting news!

Hello there,

I hope that you're all enjoying the sunshine.

I'm here today to share a card that I'm entering into this month's final colour challenge at Chocolate Baroque.

The stamps that I've used are from the 'Wild Meadow' set and I've coloured the stamps with Distress inks.
I'd also like to share some exciting news with you all too.  I've had one of my cards published in the July issue of Craft Stamper magazine which came out yesterday.  The theme was Soothing Sunsets and here's a sneaky peak at part of my card:

The full card is on page 54 and I will post a photograph of the whole card once I'm allowed to when the next edition of the magazine is published.

Enjoy the sunshine and Happy Crafting!

Bad blogger here Sandra, seems to be slow going still but wanted to thank you for visiting despite my tardy activity.

Your CB entry is absolutely beautiful and evokes thoughts of warm balmy summer days, thanks so much for joining in and sad it's the last challenge.

Well done on the publications, it gives you such a boost doesn't it.

Enjoy the rest of Sunday.

two stunningly gorgeous cards, Sandra! I love them both, but I am drawn to those gorgeous purples and the lavender and butterflies. It was wonderful to meet you too. It did amuse me that we kept bumping into each other... I bet we own a very similar collection of Crafty stash! Hope to see you again next time xxx
