Oho I'm in Print!

Ohoo I'm sooo excited! (Lyn does a jig!) I've just had an email from Ruth at Papermaking Inspirations to say they are putting one of my liccle cards into the next issue of the magazine! (issue 91 so be sure to have a look when you get yours!)
Even though you've already seen this card... or another one very much like it.. a few weeks ago here on the blog, here it is again! And!! Spyder's Corner even gets a mention too, so I'm a very Happy Bunny!
And to think I nearly didn't make this card! I made about three or four football cards in the end for a lady in her nineties to choose for her great nephew who was celebrating his 60th birthday. I thought she'll want something, well...boring! Like a like football, or a boot, (which is what she actually asked for) but no! She loved this card and her great nephew loves it so much, I'm told he's 'framed' it!
So... a great score all round!!! I did make the card again, so I could take some better pictures, that's the trouble when you use acetate, make sure you and your camera aren't in the picture too! For those of you who missed it last time, you can downlown these lovely papers free from Papercrafts Inspirations HERE They're called, 'Glad You're my Dad'
You will also find a few other freebie papers on the same page.
The font I used inside the card is also a freebie, it's called Idolwild, and you can download it HERE
