Quick Cards Magazine

Sooooooooo long since I created this card - July when I think the weather was summer :) in prepartion for the latest edition of Quick Cards Magazine (November issue) - where Steve shares his latest news!  There is also a little piccie on the front cover. 

Shame they didn't include Isla in the piccie...............don't worry I won't tell her - not that she'd be the least bit bothered.  She really loves crafting, Billy our other cat is an expert at borrowing my crafting bits and is excellent at stashing them away.  Too good - missing loads of kit - Billy!

I used this months Club Stamp from Little Claire and Isla helped me stage the photo - ahh........yes she is an absolute sweetie and I love her to bits.
