My First Post as a CardMaker Magazine Blog Designer Plus a Tutorial and Comment Candy!

Hello Everyone!

I am super excited today because it's my first post as a CardMaker Magazine blog Designer!


It's the only magazine I submit my work  to!

I was also a contributing artists in a book published by DRG/CardMaker called 
"Coloring Techniques for Card Making" and will be giving a copy of it away to a lucky commentor, so read on to find out how you can win! :)

I'm just going to give you a sneak peek of my card because I am hoping that you'll head on over to our CardMaker Magazine blog and check it out there. ;)


I also have a little "Chain Stitching on Cards" tutorial for you there. :)

Now...how do you win this book?

Head on over to the CardMaker blog, leave me a little love, then come back and let me know what you think about my card. 
It's that easy! 
You don't even have to be a follower but I would ♥ it if you are (old or new)! :)
I will pick and announce the winner on Sunday.

Thanks so much for dropping by!
♥Hugs♥
True :D

I think your card is lovely True. Love how you have matched the colours of the thread with the ribbon and the matting card too. It would be fabulous to win such a brilliant book, thanks for the chance.

What a beautiful card and such an easy-to-follow tutorial. It's been years since I've done any chain-stitching so the how-to refresher was quite helpful. I may just have to give this a try. I have your CDS quilt blocks set but haven't had a chance to get them inky. Now I want to more than ever!!
