with appreciation

This is a long overdue post with a long overdue thank you.

Just less than a month ago I found out that I was a winner in Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking magazine's World Card Making Day contest.  After a few back n' forth rounds with the editors where I basically asked them "are you sure it's me you chose as a winner?!?", and their confirmation that yes, they really did choose me, I let myself squeal and do a happy dance.  First publication and a much appreciated boost of confidence.  So, with that I say to Holly her team of editors: Thank you.

Yesterday I received by box of goodies as a prize for being a WCMD winner.  I had to Facetime my sister right away and open up the box as if she was right there with me.  We enjoyed seeing all the fun products and I can't wait to to craft with them.

I love how supportive my fellow crafters and bloggers have been to me, and I think much of that is a result of the community that Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking magazine has established.  Thank you again for all the joy and creativity you have brought into my life.

This card will be entered into the CASE Study challenge, where we are using the card by our muse Keisha Campbell as inspiration.
