Yipee!!!! My Card Publish in Docrafts Creativity Magazine - January/February Edition Issue 43

Hi Crafters
Happy New Year 2014

Yipee, brilliant news to tell you all.
My fourth craft goal (bucket list) I have made.
Docrafts on their craft forum page put a call out for Designers back in November.
I popped my name on the list, and they sent me a decoupage sheet.
I made the card and return it back to them.
In below edition of the Magazine they have published my card in it.
Congratulations to the other six ladies also published in same article.
A huge thank you to Kate and Sarah at Docrafts for choosing my card for this edition.
