Back in issue 12 of Creativity magazine there was a competition to make a card. You could make it for any theme you liked as long as the products used could be found on the docrafts website or in the Creativity magazine. It was prefect timing as I had just brought the new Forever friends paper pad, stamps and some of the sparkling trims, so I designed my card and sent it in just before Christmas and thought nothing more of it. Until my new issue of Creativity turned up the other day.....

On Page 110 is only my card and it's has won first place wow wow wow!!! To say I was jumping for joy is a understatement, I really can't believe it. I was please with how my card turned out but didn't think I stood a chance of winning as it was such a big competition. Below is the page from the magazine and a closer look at my card. Trouble is now I have got to think where am I going to put it all!!!!

This is my card I have made for the new challenge over on Charisma cardz blog the theme this week is "Hugs and Cuddles" so I have used this super cute Penny Black image. The papers I have used are from a Paper Cellar pad. The message reads "Hugs and kisses Get well soon". So this made me think it will tie in good with the new challenge over on the Penny Black blog "37 Get well"
