Whoohoo… I’m a cover girl..

..and a Page 3 girl too!!!! ROFL

Not in the magazine though!..
When I told my buddy SONIA last night

that my card with the Lily of the Valley fairies
made the front page of the new CM&PC magazine
she replied back that I was a page three on Crafty blogs..
So it’s a double whammy for me, nice one!! heehe!



I was thrilled to be working with these cute fairies
as I’ve loved them from the moment I’d seen them,
so I’ve got a quick give-away for you.
I’ve got 3 LotV fairies to give away..
so if you would like to be in with a chance to win one..
just leave your message under this post.

You will have till Friday 19th 6pm [uk time]
when I will pick the winners and announce on my blog.


The magazine will be out on the shelves tomorrow [16th]
and it’s packed full of fresh spring ideas & inspiration

I have to make this a short post as I’m off to see my family in Holland, and I’m flying in 2.5 hours..

So I hope you all have a fabulous week and catch up on Friday, Good Luck!!

Hugs, Marlene xx
