Birthday update and good news!!!!

Hello all! Hope you are well and happy - I'm having a wonderful birthday - thanks to all who sent cards and presents and well wishes - I'm very lucky indeed. Here's most of the crafty goodies I got:

I've already been having a play - but more of that on a future day. Here are some of the handmade cards I received from some of you lovely bloggers. (Lyndsay, Aunty Sue, Jo, mum and my sister Jacqui)
And here's the one that the lovely Redanne made me that was hard to photograph flat.

Aren't I lucky?
And now for my special news - I heard from Linda Simpson the other day that I had made it on to the design team for Imaginations Crafts. I'm so excited - the challenge blog is already live - imagination-craftschallenges - and the first challenge will be on the 1st July. So looking forward to being part of such an amazing team!!! So thanks Linda for having me on board and looking forward to working with the rest of you wonderful ladies!

Big Hugs
