Still in shock...positively

Hello sweet friends! I hope you are all well, warm and safe! This morning I heard on the news that some of you have to deal with winter already - I hope it is not as bad as it sounds! I am quite well here. A lot of work, but besides the usual little colds we are ok. It has been a bit quiet here on the blog, but I will flood you with posts in the upcoming weeks! You will get LOTS of tutorials and I am planning some giveaways, too!


Now to the title of this post. Yes, I am in shock! When I checked the messages on my phone during lunch break on Friday, I found a sweet message with congratulations on my WCMD win. UM - WHAT??? Now imagine me hopping through the crowded shopping street (very decently dressed because of work), waving excitedly with my phone, squeaking like a teenager at a concert. No composure at all :) The rest of the day it was a lot easier to give grumbling customers a friendly smile.
I couldn't, and can't believe it still. I can't remember what cards I made, except for the four I remembered to take photos of. I am not sure how many cards I made, but not more than 6 or 7. I only know a birthday card won, so I am able to share the others. Here they are:


Hello/Thinking of You category:






Some cute paper from Webster's Pages here. I liked the colors on this one.


Love category:






This one uses Cosmo Cricket.


Christmas category:






And here some more Webster's Pages, combined with the beautiful reindeer from the Hero Arts Christmas Swirls set.


My dancing became even happier when I checked the Paper Crafts Connection blog myself and found out about many sweet crafty friends who won, too! And next week there will be honorable mentions. I am sure there will be some prizes involved, so be sure to check out their blog!


Thank you for visiting and have a beautiful day! Stay save!


Hugs and Love,
Vanessa
