Cardmaker of the Year 2008 in Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine

This will be a long post I have lots I wish to share,
Do you recall this post?

Well I am so happy to tell you that I won FIRST place in the sizzix category and third place for Cuttlebug category! "Woooo Hoooooo" Jumping up and down with glee my winning letter waving around which I had to read out loud at least ten times to be SURE!

Here is the cover of the latest cardmaking and papercraft which I am in with my winning entries...

Cardmaking and papercraft it says it will be out tomorrow but I have my copy already and you can get it in WHsmiths aswell!

Wow I couldn't believe it I am still grinning and have been sitting on this information for ever!
So I may as well share my entries with you now... I took pictures before I sent them off...

This is my sizzix entry, I used the die of rocking horse and made it rock with a brad and penny which is all concealed behind the frame. In the slide show you can see how it moves back and fourth!

This was my cuttlebug entry...
