OMG!! Chuffed to bits!!!!!!!!!!

Well Im a really happy bunny today.Front cover on Craft Stamper.Never in a million years did I expect that to happen. My postie has just delivered my copy and I nearly frightened him half to death!!! poor man!!!lol
I did manage to have a sneak peak yesterday when The Stampman's came and I could see my card shining through the grey plastic cover, sorry Jill I just had to open it!! LOL !Though five 5 mins before that VIX had texted me to tell me,but she didnt tell me about the cover!!!So I was in absolute SHOCK!!


Card below:made by Sophie Dolphin age 10

Simon Says-Childrens Challenge
I just had to post this card made by Sophie for a school competition.Yes she loves easels too!!The competition was to make an Easter bonnet or card and to add something to show what Easter is really about. Anyhow,poor thing had to stand up in assembly yesterday and talk about it!!! lol and she is going to enter it into her first ever challenge HERE

Bye for now

Love Debbie xxx
UPDATE: Can I thankyou all for all your lovely comments.They really do make my day xxxx

Well done Debbie AND Sophie! I'm glad your copy arrived overwise I had visions of you rummaging around in the sorting office looking for it.

It was a beautiful project, and like Linda says Sophie could make a cover or two in the future too. Very brave of you to stand up with it in assembly Sophie.

Congratulations to you both!!!!

Fandabbytastic Debbie. I knew it was one of your beautiful cards before I even opened the packet when my CS copy arrived yesterday.

You truly deserve to be on the front page as your easel cards are something else.

Watch out though! You've got strong competition coming up from the rear, Lol! Sophie's card is wonderful but standing up in front of assembly. Phew, that would have been my worst nightmare when I was at school. Brave, brave girl!

Hugs

Tristan Robin Blakeman said...

What a well-deserved honor!

You're a real inspiration - I have never had any desire to make greeting cards - but your easel cards have given me the impetus to try my hand at it.

Besides - it's more reason to shop for supplies!

Congrats on the cover.
