Royal Jubilee card Published!!!!

Hello everybobs !...  well the card this week is a very special one in deed... it has been made for HRH the Queen on the occasion of her Diamond Jubilee...

I was approached from committe members of the town partnership of where i live to make the card to send to the Queen for her jubilee.... On disclosing the mamoth task Id been given the lovely peeps over at Docrafts sent me a parcel to help me out.... full of the gorgeous Portobello Road goodies.. I quickly got to work with planning it but didnt rush it as i needed to get it just right,,,

I decided on an easel card design to give me more 'floorspace' to fit in all the elements i wanted to use.
I hope her HRH likes it as much as the people I made it for!!

My card and story has also been published in the Mays copy of Creativity although i have yet to see the article yet as i havent been able to grab a copy as my local stockist hasnt got it yet - i cant wait!

Paragraph writing is also a fun, if you be familiar with after that you can write otherwise it is difficult to write.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of
your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
