"My Prize has Arrived"

Hello,welcome to my wee corner of Blogland.  Thank you for visiting me today, I love that you take time to come and see what I have been up to.  
No card today, I was rather excited to see a parcel arriving for me this morning.  Yes!! at long last it is here, my Prize from Card Making Magazine.  I entered their Mothers Day Competition way back at the beginning of the Year.    I knew I had won a prize when I saw the picture of my card in the April edition of the Magazine.  (That`s it propped up at the back)   I have been waiting since then for the parcel to arrive.   I did eventually have to e-mail the editor to find out what had happened to it.  I thought it had gone walk about in the post.  No, it was sitting on her desk she had not had time to parcel it up and post it out.  I would have thought the Editor of such a magazine would at least have had an assistant that could have done that for her.   Anyway it is here and I am delighted with the contents.

12 x 12 papers
Lovely A4 card, colours all co-ordinate with the 12 x 12 papers
2 Ink pads
2 rolls Ribbon
Some White String and colour co-ordinated embellishments
Plus lot of stamps.

I have never used Stamping Up Ink Pads before, and I tell you it took me ages to work to open the blooming things.  Now that I have managed, I rather like the idea of how they work.

I had not heard from Hazel till just after 8pm, we were on the phone for nearly 11/2 hours trying to get this Blog of hers set up.   I think the fact she is only using her iPad was making more difficult for me.  I kept telling her what I do but I use the PC to post all my things.  I do comment from my iPad but I have never had any success putting on a Post.

 Thank you for popping by I really appreciate it

  26. Congratulations Patricia. I have only won things as blog candy or being pulled out of the spotty potty on C&C so it must give you a smile a mile wide to win this for making a stunning card.
    I have been reluctant to enter competitions as I always wonder if my stuff will be good enough but I guess if I don't try, I won't know.
    Well done again.
