Whimsy Magazine Guest Designer

Hi there, sweet peeps! A couple of months ago I was honored to be asked by Denise (thanks sweetie:)) from
  Whimsy Stamps to join as guest designer for Whimsy Magazine January 2013 Issue . I'm really thrilled about this as I have never seen my creations printed before and now only I came to realize how beautiful and relaxing it can be to actually read a crafting magazine. I haven't bought one before as I used to be one of those pig-headed gals with preconcieved ideas who thought internet would be enough to fulfill her crafting needs but well, I now admit I see, admire and study creativity at ease with a printed magazine in my hands. Totally love the idea!

Here are two of my cards. You can see more in the printed version of Whimsy Magazine issue 11 which can be ordered here or in the online version which can be browsed here:

I have taken just this one photo and then gave away this card, sorry for the quality of this pic:(.

They are both so beautiful. The colours are both so stunning and the images are beautifully coloured. I can't say I prefer one to the other as they are equally gorgeous.
Hugs Sharon. x
