Australian Cardmaker of the Year 2012~ Highly Commended

Last year I entered a competition I saw in Australian Simply Cards magazine ~ Australian Cardmaker of the Year.  It was open to Australian and New Zealand card makers... I didn't win but this week got an email from Cecilia who was a runner up to say she had seen one of my card at the Australian Scrapbooking and Papercraft Expo in Melbourne last weekend ~ Highly Commended.  I was chuffed.... and Cecilia took a photo




and here is the card that got Highly Commended.


If you want to see the beautiful cards that Cecilia made and got her runner up prize for, go to her blog post HERE.  Her cards are just delightful. 

Thanks for visiting and sharing my excitement on this.

I'd sure say "highly commended" too, Dawn, but I have no idea what "chuffed" means - ha! A huge congrats - this card is so lovely. Good for you.

Brenda says "chuffed" all the time-I had never heard the term before I met her, but atleast now I know what it means! I would be "chuffed" too :) XX Congrats!
