    Congrats to Sue and Diane!

    You don't know what a special treat you're in for, but you'll soon find out :-) Photos don't reveal the half of Kim's talent. You'll have a wonderful piece of hers to call all your own.

    Personally speaking,I can't think of any two faithful and adamant folks who visit here and have participated with all their hearts as did Diane and Sue, Kim. I'm very pleased and absolutely thrilled that you two won!

    I have scored simply by playing along. I have fun simply because I'm here. Everyone here is the bomb as we say here in the states.

    *Hugs to All*! and thanks for being here, too.

    Hi Kim,

    Many congratulations to Diane and Sue, very worthy winners who no doubt will be extremely pleased with their prize :)

    Love the post logo, will have to look more into that link sometime.

    I’m also just mooching around visiting all those tagged with Santa’s Christmas Meme and ensuring that they are added to my Technorati Fav’s along the way :)

    Have a great week

    have a great week :)

  • Sueblimely 3.10.07

    What a time to have my computer crash on me - I have only been doing some basic things this week on a computer that does the family TV show recording which makes it so slow to do anything else. Now I can browse again. Yippee!
    Thank you so much Kim. There is no hurry for it at all so please do not make yourself too busy - fit it in only when you have the time around your other projects.

  • Kim 3.10.07

    hi Sue..
    that's no good....
    I don't know what I would do if my computer crashed !!!!
    no worries.....I'm quite used to working on several projects at once so feel free to send the
    photo(s) any time soon :)

  • Lynda Lehmann 17.10.07
