A Good Day

I've had a rough month.
But today it got good. :)
CARDS magazine is publishing one of my cards.
And I won the Moxie Fab world 'Three Cheers for Chairs' Challenge.
Do you know, without you readers I'd never have the drive to go on creating.
Thank you so much.
So I'll share the love with a giveaway.   Just leave a comment below - I've lots of nice things I want to send you.
