2006house of card~








a couple of months ago, i posted the 3cards that were my enteries in the house of cards exhibit..now the call for ATCs were published in several trade magazines as the enteries came from all over the world..the reception for this exhibit was last night and was very nice, when i was looking for my cards, i found 2of them and the 3rd won wasnt near, so i paniced..okay, did i forget to put it in the envelope, did the owner lose it>> where the hell was it?? so i rounded the corner and there under the category award for "BEAUTY" was my card..okay my armpits started sweating immediately and my face went red and i was embarassed, i dont know why because the card is pretty, but i seriously never considered it would win anything and i still am amazed..so that was my night last night and it was good one....

Kim, even with the glare of the plastic I can see that your card is BEAUTIFUL. Well Done! And what a fabulous exhibition.

I know that some of my Aussie friends sent cards. What a blessing for you to be able to see them all.

How interesting to think that your card didn't make it there - to not only make it there but win a special prize.
Great pictures, looks like a wonderful evening.
peace
