Today is a VERY good day!

Just a quick post with happy news - certainly lifted my spirits after all the rain:

Firstly - this morning I found out my paper-pieced card had been showCASed at Less is More - that certainly brightened my morning :-)

Secondly - I have a day off so I got to spend all afternoon watching Wimbledon - and after 74 years the UK finally has a competitor in the finals on Sunday - that makes me very happy :-)    And now Jonathan Marray is through to the men's doubles final - the first Brit to do so for 52 years so it's a British double this weekend - AMAZING!

and then to make a good day into a BRILLIANT day I just got a "happy mail" from Susan R Opel, Creative Editor at Paper Crafts Magazine which means that I'm one of 7 new designers who've had a submission accepted for the January/February 2013 issue - you can't imagine how much that made my whole weekend :-D  :-D  :-D  :-D    Just got to wait 6 months before I can share the project with you all ;-)

 I'm off to open the bubbly..............
