Card Designer of the Year 2007

I entered this competition earlier in the month and was gobsmaked to come home to a big parcel on friday, Matt just thought I'd been ordering stuff but it was out of the blue for me. So I opened it and I'm a runner up! How exciting is that! Its a comp Practical Publishing do every year and I just thought I'd give it a go. I got a huge box of stuff, lots of it I wouldn't have bought myself but variety is definitely the spice of life!

I've been bouncing off the ceiling for most of the weekend, I'm just so chuffed, and I'm so glad I gave it a go. If you're thinking about entering something go for it, if you don't try you won't know! Here's my prize, and apparently theres books to come too!I have been doing some cardmaking too, but quite frankly I'm finding it hard to stay still right now, it took me ages to get this pic as they were all wobbly. Now I must go as I'm off to see my pal Nic who's doing a craft fair, and I was going to see her yesterday but something came up.

Very big grins here, hope you all have a good weekend :D

oh wow look at all that stash!

Huge congrats Rhi and so well deserved, your cards are always beautiful and your attention to detail second to none.

I've got the Greetings card factory program - I don't use it very often, but it is really handy to have - great for getting interesting font effects if you're not very good at word art etc!
