This was not the post...

...I intended this evening.

However, after spending a lovely evening yesterday colouring the latest image I had received from the CDAC Progressive Challenge and making it into a card - I realised I can't share it with you until 17th September...Drat!!!

So let me share some good news that I was saving for this Friday as it certainly rocked my world.

What is the news?

At the demo day on Saturday over at Pinnacle crafts they had a birthday draw for everyone who purchased something on the day. There were two winners and I was one of them.

This is what I have won...
...isn't that just fabulous. When I read the email on Monday I was bouncing around like a loon (good job there wasn't anyone to see me - they would have been dialling for the men in white coats **giggle**).

One of my crafting friends is also a work colleague (although she works in a different building) and I had cause to phone her boss today but she answered.

"Oh Hi Weasel, Chris not around?"

"Hi there, no he's at a meeting. Aren't you a jammy wotsit!" (This from a woman who won a Cricut Mini about 6 months ago).

**??????**

"Don't you read your emails?"

**Lightbulb moment**

"Oh you mean the 'Tim' thing."

"You know your pens won't fit in it."

"No...but all my Distress ink pads will."

**Big grin & plenty of giggles**

I think my staff were beginning to think I really had lost the plot - demented woman sat at her desk with silly grin on face...talking to a weasel...

In fairness, they do know who Weasel is (that's her user name on UK Scrappers) but I still think they are starting to wonder if I'm slowly (or perhaps not so slowly) losing my marbles.

Still, it's fun chatting to another crafter about such things. Especially when it's things like winning a Tim Holtz Ink Cargo case...........................
