What a great way to start 2012..... getting a card published in , an on-line magazine..  I'm on Page 17 with this one
I wasn't sure what issue it was to be in... so got a nice surprise when I checked my emails and started looking through this months issue.  I'm a subscriber so each month I get the magazine in my in box..... you should go visit Magazine and subscribe, it's free!  There's lots of scrapping and card making inspiration and every month there is a free kit.

So for me, a super way to start the year....

And it's my turn to host the challenge over at Die Cut Diva's.... This month is "Love is in the Air".  Be it Valentines, a Wedding, an Engagement or just a "I Love You" project and you use your die cut machine... then we'd love you to join us.

Here's my inspiration card

Inspired by Penny Black/Flower Soft Blog hop

It in turn was inspired by the Penny Black/Flower Soft blog hop and a card done by Cibele
I used some Nellie Snellen dies to cut my centre piece.  I've also entered this into Penny Black and More @ Allsorts January Challenge.

So please come and join us.

May 2012 be as great for you as it has started for me....
