Happy news!

Yes, I'm posting twice on one day, but I have to tell you my happy news! This morning I got a lovely surprise when I opened my e-mail and literally jumped for joy. I had won a plate of vintage Christmas Yuletide Blessing stamps from Nancy from Sugar Lump Studios. The challenge was to make a Yuletide arch.



My second lovely news is that the card below won second place in the latest Hero Arts techniques week. I so wanted to win too!! I can now go shopping for 25 dollars. I feel so blessed!!



I also was so encouraged by the visitors to my blog for my distressed window arch post - thank you all SO much!!

  3. Morning, Jacqueline!

    Just wanted to say congratulations on BOTH of your wins!! I love, love your arch! I have never seen arches before, except for yours.....where can I learn more about them?

    Your snowy pictures were beautiful, too. We are having the same here in Ohio; hope it doesn't make it difficult for the drive to my parents' for Thanksgiving.

    Sending hugs,
    Lin
