CAS-maybe? + Stamp Something Recipe + Sketch and Stash challenge 39 + Lily-boo Too Challenge-summery cards

Good morning everyone...we didn't go to Ikea yesterday but I went to the craft shop instead and bought some papers, did you do anything exciting yesterday?...just curious but have any of you ever been published in a craft magazine I was having a little look through one in the newsagents yesterday and spotted the free My Minds Eye paper pad in Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine so of course I had to buy it and when I was looking through it there was loads of people in it I knew, are any of you still having problems with Mr Blogger as my blog seems slow to load and it isn't usually...today's card is the closest I get to a clean and simple card I think, I used the Stamp Something Challenge recipe and the fab sketch at Sketch and stash too. oh and the Lily-boo too challenge for Summery cards too...I used a Lilyboo Designs freebie from Cuddly Buddly isn't she a real cutie, shes coloured with distress inks and I teamed her up with these stunning striped papers from the Fancy Pants Roadshow kit I bought at Bunny Zoe's crafts...I finished with a Bunny Zoe's button and a stunning extra wide organza pink ribbon...I hope you like it...have a fantastic Sunday everyone, I will be back tomorrow with a special new release but ssssshhhhh I cant tell you yet you will just have to wait and see

Hi, Mina. Actually, I've been published twice in Quick cards-your letters section and I think I'll be in August issue as a winner of the Queen's birthday competition. But this has nothing to do with being such an appreciate designer like you are! I know I'm just a beginner.
Your card is clean and simple but so elegant and well coloured! Hugs. Miria

Sweet card Mina! No your blog don't load slow to me. I have been published twice in the norwegian magazine Ett trykk, once with two layouts and once with a trio of cards but I like to show what I make as fast as I can and I hate writing "what I use lists" so I haven't sent in anything lately. Have a lovely sunday!!

Hi Mina,Fab card,love the clean and simple look,it makes a nice change sometimes.....as for being published,not me I'm afriad,must look for that mag; though with the freebie papers...blogger has been playing up abit lately,thought it was something to do with my pc,so glad I'm not alone,enjoy whats left of the week-end.xx

Hi Mina, I just love what you've done, the papers look very effective the way you've matted them at an angle. Love the image too. I've not been lucky enough to appear in any mags :-(
