A Little Bit Happy...........

Hi all. Today I'm really happy. Firstly, my niece has had her first baby, a boy...........welcome little Max. Now, I am not a card maker: there never seems to be enough room or space for me on a card..........I like a bigger stage, but, I have attempted a boy card for this beautiful and very happy occasion.

Secondly, the challenge blog, Our Vintage Affair loved my little "whimsical" egg creation and awarded me a prize for it. I was thrilled, and thank you very much. Also the very fun challenge blog, 123, liked my April entry: thanks girls and thanks also to Purple Pumpkin for sponsoring.

So that's why I am a little bit happy today. As artists, sometimes I'm sure we all have doubts, and question "is what we produce worthy ? it even good ?.............and is it "good enough" to be "out there" where it will be publicly judged and scrutinised. So, every now and then it's nice to get that positive affirmation from other creative souls that say,"yes", your work is worthy and does have creative value.
