Harry Happy Mail (and some happy mail)

Today's card is something I've made for hubby's birthday.

His only request was that his card featured nothing cute and no bears.

Well, it's the thought that counts, right?

...and my very own Happy Mail also arrived last week in the form of November's delivery of Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine where I found my name under the 2nd place prizewinner in their National Cardmaker of the Year 2015.  (yup, I'm still grinning!)  :0)

Bear? Nope, can't see one. Cute? You, really?! What was he thinking. Absolutely love Harry, and your brilliant colourwork makes him come to life. Drooling over the cardstock, that's fabulous for a male make. Brilliant card. Happy Birthday to himself, I hope you both have a super day underground!
Of course, HUGE CONGRATULATIONS on your selection hun, it should have been 1st in my book though. Keep that grin going girl!
Hugs xx
