WOW!

Its been a cold, wet and dark day at home today. My friend Paula came round to catch up, bought lunch (M&S Lasagne) and as it was warming in the oven the door bell rang. A delivery man handed me a huge black box with Jane Packer written on the side. Is this for me? Yes it was!

Immediately I knew it was flowers and a certain person sprang to mind straight away - my wonderful friend Sue.


Inside the gorgeous box was this huge bouquet of flowers and a bottle of champagne - how lucky am I!



What was the occasion?
Well I got an email yesterday from Crafts Beautiful to say that I have won Best Crafts Beautiful Designer for 2008 in their Crafts Awards.

I am absolutely thrilled to bits to have won and need to thank everyone who took the time out to vote for me - it means so much.

I also have to say a HUGE Thank You to Sue, Rich and all the Craftwork Cards gang for the stunning flowers and bottle of bubbly, it was so kind of you and I appreciate it so much. I feel like a real star!

By the way this is not the news I have been waiting to share with you, that will have to be next week now!
