Challenges and Exciting News

Happy Sunday Evening!!  What a glorious weekend it has been.  Went to Kansas City yesterday and did some shopping then met the kids at a fantastic Italian restaurant named Bravo's to celebrate our anniversary.  We ate, opened our gifts, and got to play with Lilly the whole time.  Took a short walk around to see the gorgeous Christmas Tree and lights on every tree on the streets.  The weather was so mild and it was such a beautiful evening.  Ok, enough about

The inside of my card:

Just finished this card for a few challenges and hope you like it:
Elisabeth Bells World Challenge - Tic Tac Toe - Used lace, flowers, and pearls
The image is from Bells'n Whistles - Fairy Fond Thoughts
CLP Sketch Challenge - Monthly Sketch
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Tip Top Tuesday - Anything Goes

A few days ago I received an email titled "Angels" and followed the directions, never know if it's a fluke or a real thing.  Well, it must have been the real thing because I won the Free Copic class with Suzanne Dean from Renkata.  Doesn't get any better than this dear friends.  I hope all of you that might have received the angel email from someone that something wonderful and spectacular has occurred in your life.  If so, please let me know your good news regardless who sent it to you.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your day has been a good one, with an even better week to come.  I'm headed out blog hopping now to see what I've been missing out on these past few days.  Hope to see you back soon.
"Love & Hugs" Carol (Granny)
