Wow, talk about lifting my spirits!

Wow ladies.  I certainly have news for you today. 

I have been having a hard go of it lately dealing with my ailing father and having to take over his affairs along with working full time, and that has to do with a lot of why I have not posted in the last couple of days.  However....

Last week I entered a sketch and colour challenge over at Ispy and The Dynamic Duos.  On Saturday I discovered that I had made Honourable Mention for Dynamic Duos.  Today as I am going through my emails and blog I find that I have received the honour of being Top 2 at I Spy for the same card.  Thank you, thank you so much, and to think the cards inspiration all came from a stamp set that I spoted on the internet!  Just to refresh your memory here is what the card looked like.

The next thing I would like to tell you all about is that I have been chosen to be a Designer over at Cardabilities.  I am so exited about this and over the next three months I will be able to join the Design Team there. 

Lastly the next session of Stampin Fun and Friends starts Wednesday night so if you have not registered yet, you don't want to miss out on this one. 

Thanks again.  Being sellected as an Honourable Menton, Top 2 or Designer is the icing on the cake, but what means the most to me are all your great comments, so thank you all for your time in letting me know what you think about my cards.
