An early Christmas gift

I know, Christmas is over... this post is 2 days late. I hope this isn't like tootin' my own horn, but I have to share and remember this wonderful feeling.

2 days ago, as I went through my regular routine of checking emails, I was confused by several congratulatory emails in my inbox. I thought it was strange because I don't remember entering any contests nor have I really stamped in about a month.

And then the light went off... holy crap! Here is the big shock!

To receive validation from one of the stamping industry's leaders, one of my favorite companies... I was just floored!

I was totally inspired to get off my behind and finish this gift card holder.

I "just wanted to say..." Thank you, Lisa! Thank you, Hero Arts!

(And yes, I know, I have an obsession with birds and trees in winter scenes. What can I say, I just *heart* them! :)
