Such a proud moment :o)

Just over a year ago when I started my blog I did nothing but upload a card or two a month, being a little afraid of the computer and blogland itself I waited, then at the start of 2011 I decided to take the plunge and really throw myself into blogging and challenges...excitedly I won my very first challenge which was really thrilling not just because of winning a great prize but the fact that it was a Tilda challenge! and if you know anything about me you know I adore Tilda, it was the Totally Tilda challenge Blog. Just a couple of months later (this last weekend) I was contacted by the lovely, jolly Susie Sugar (The Boss!) and she asked me if I would like to join the team (WOW!) Imagine the excitment, it felt like christmas to me, it took all of 5 seconds for me to reply and say YES! So I am now a very proud Design Team member of Totally Tilda Challenge Blog!!!! Yeah!!!!

Loads of hugs from a very happy
