Cards that are featured in Simply Cards & Papercrafts

Hello again blog friends. Now for sharing the exciting news with you all.
A few months back Simply Cards & Papercrafts Magazine approached Gayle Cook - Teddy Bo's creator, saying they would love to do a few pages on the bears. Of course Gayle had to decide which  of the design team she was going to pick to help promote the Bears. So in the end the magazine let her pick 3 of us. So there was me, Edna and Colette. 
Now we couldn't turn that down could we? As you can imagine we were all jumping for joy and so excited. I'm telling you now, it was so hard to keep my mouth shut - I hate secrets lol. 
One of the design team members sent this picture she scanned in of the magazine. She subscribes to the mag, so got hers first. My local shops or WHSmiths haven't had it in yet.


I just can't wait to have the magazine in my hands. I have to say though, that I am very disappointed that Colettes aren't in the magazine. Though they are on their web site under " HOT PROJECTS ". We all worked really hard in the getting the cards done in time - a few panics and eager to please.
I've never spent so much time on a card.
Here are the two cards that I sent in. I have also listed the products I used. 
I  have the instructions for them if anyone would like to make one. Just give me a shout, will be glad to help.

Thank you so much for taking a peek. I do appreciate all comments - they really do make my day.
Well, I am off now - off to visit my Nan soon, who's just had her hip replaced. I get a break now for a week - but God help me when she gets home. She's very demanding indeed.
Hugs & Loves

  2. Can't wait to see the magazine, this all came about after one of my Teddy Bo cards was featured in the readers letters back in the Summer. Gayle told me after they saw it they wanted to feature these gorgeous (addictive) little bears. Great cards, take care, Jane x
