Stamper of the Year! OMG it's me!!!

I've been bursting to share with you...
but my lips were sealed till publication day.





Craft Stamper Magazine
have voted me

Stamper of the Year!


Can you see me doing a happy dance?
Dancing Penguins


I am flabbergasted! I am in disbelief!............I'm the one in the middle! HOL
What’s more, silly me forgot to renew my subscription and I have only just been able to buy a copy from my local W.H Smith LOL


(not so local as it's 5 miles away!)

Some of you may have had your magazine ages now and not have realised it was me as I have never posted my full name here.....I have always been a bit wary of posting too much personal information....you never know what fruitcakes there are out there! LOL


I was thrilled enough when Katy, the editor, asked for my pieces to be sent for judging on the short list from the photo’s I sent, as I had been in two minds whether they were good enough and left it very late to send the e-mail!
People say things like “I’m over the moon” when faced with such wonderful news


…..but that does not really convey how I feel.


How about......
“I feel like running to the edges of the universe and back in 30 seconds”!!!

Do you get my drift? Do ya?

I want to thank those that judged my pieces special enough to be chosen as
“STAMPER OF THE YEAR!”

Dancing Penguins
what an honour and I still can't believe my "Dance to the Music of Time" canvas is on the front cover....I mean just look at all the talent on the front cover with little old me!!
It is surreal..........ooh er!.........I feel a wobble coming on.....
that means I have to live up to this!

Can I do it?............I will certainly try :)
xoxo Sioux



P.S. If you are looking for my T!m 12 days of Christmas tags and any newer posts please scroll down as I am leaving this as a sticky for a little while.....
just so I can get used to it ya know! HOL
P.P.S. Detail of how the canvas was done are on the Craft Stamper website here.
