Today I am mostly feeling........honoured and a little excited!

Good Morning!

Well today, as my title suggests, I am feeling pretty good!  (The title makes more sense if you've ever seen the Fast Show!)  I was contacted by Christine at Practical Scrappers and she asked if I would mind two of my cards being featured on her website - would I mind?!!  I had to read it a few times to make sure I hadn't just made it up! 

I know it may seem a little ridiculous to get so excited about it, but I have always made cards for family and friends and just because I like doing it.  Family and friends always tell you how lovely they are etc. (well, most of them anyway - some are maybe a little TOO honest sometimes!) and they do this because they love you.  Random strangers don't have this incentive to be nice and I never for one moment thought that anyone would be particularly interested in my little spot of creativity.

I cannot tell you how glad I am that I was wrong!  Woohoo!  I'm still so overwhelmed by how NICE everyone in this little (well, actually quite large!) creative blogging community are!  (and I really do feel like it's a community that spans the continents)  I can't get over it!  In any other walk of life, if you are competing against people, the likely chances of them encouraging and complimenting you are slim to none, right?!  I love that everyone has something nice to say AND that they feel the need to say it!  So this is another thank you to anyone and everyone who has read my little blog so far and left me a wonderfully nice comment, or even if you haven't left a comment and you've just thought it - thank you.  It's much appreciated :)  I hope you continue to do so and that I don't disappoint anyone!

Ok, so that's my little essay over! 

I have been linked on Practical Scrappers TWICE in the last week and I am feeling pretty humbled by that :)  Thank you to Christine for 'finding' me and feeling I was good enough to join the other talented artists that are featured on the site :)

Here are the links, if anyone's interested.  You should really check out the other girls talents on there if nothing else :)
