So Much Good News

After all the pain and hassle of the past couple of weeks it's really exciting to be able to share some GOOD NEWS with you today.  First up....the lovely Kellie Winnell has asked me to be one of the Guest Designers for the Magnolia Down Under Challenges!!!  You should have seen how excited I was when I got the email from Kellie....if I had been at all capable I would have been dancing around like a lunatic!!!!  Kellie has helped me to fulfil one of my goals for this year of being on a DT and I couldn't be more thrilled that it's the MDUC team.  My first GDT post will be next Sunday and here's the cute badge that we get to display on our blogs:

The second piece of good news is that I made it to the second round for Nicole's Inky Impressions DT call!!!  I'm really excited about getting to have a play with some of Nicole's gorgeous stamps for the next part of the process!  I was so happy to see my name on the list on Saturday morning when I finally got round to checking....especially since some of the other ladies who made the cut are amazingly talented and there was 122 applicants!!!!!

The next bit of good news is that I won some blog candy from the fabulous Miss Lydia of Understand Blue. The prize is some Sakura Glaze pens (blue of course) and I've been wanting to try these out...so I'm thrilled to bits to win them :)

Finally, I wanted to share with you the gorgeous get well card that my lovely friend Kay sent me while I was in hospital. It was so nice to find it waiting for me when I got home. She is as sweet as she is thoughtful and I consider myself lucky to have such wonderful friends.

I haven't got anything of my own to show you. The only thing I've managed to create since coming home is a birthday card for my nephew Tom who turned 5 last week...it should have been done earlier of course, but going into hospital put paid to that. I also have a card for Katelin, who turned 7 last week as well....but I don't want to show them before the kids get them because Mad likes to be surprised, rather than seeing them on the blog first :)

Hopefully I will get the Magnolia challenge for this week done tonight and have that to share with you all tomorrow.

Hope your Monday is a good one,

Kristie
