Colour Inspiration #57, Muffin box & I've been published!

Happy Sunday!
As I'm not a very regular blogger these days, I thought I'd better make the most of it while I'm here today, so I have several cards/projects to goes...!

The first is a card inspired by Kristina who has posted a one off colour challenge & judging by the number of links she has already I'm not the only one to jump at the opportunity to participate again!
Here's the card:

Stamps: Occasionally (holiday blitz - US, I think!), On your birthday, polka dot background Ink & card: riding hood red, baja breeze, so saffron, more mustard, cameo coral Other: riding hood red ribbon, scallop edge punch

And here is the challenge:

I have also taken part in Claire Daly's very kind offer of 2 muffin box downloads which also comes with the opportunity to receive 2 further tutorials free!! I haven't filled my boxes yet, but did think they would be great as Easter baskets/treat boxes...I'm sure the shops are already stocking the Easter treats for them now! I used raspberry tart dsp for mine & pretty in pink cardstock:

The box is a great size & the template & instructions were so clear & easy to follow. Thanks Claire!
The exciting card news for me to start the year was having some cards published for the first time!!!! They are in Vol 15 no 9 of Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft which is out now! Here's a couple of not very good photos of the pages:
The stamp set is the rather cute Owl Together Now.

And finally another baby card. This one is the boy version of the baby girl card in my previous post. I made it for my friend Tanya's little cutie boy who was born on Thursday!

And that's all from me for now!
All the best for the week ahead!
