Gifts Received from Kathy

I am very happy today as I received the gifts from Kathy on randomly winning the candy she organized on 09 June 2010 till 07 July 2010 on celebrating her first year blog anniversary.

That was my first time participating this kind of candy as I am still new in card making or crafting society. I never thought I will win. Well, I am not the candy winner but Kathy is kind enough to randomly select additional three (3) winners based on comments. I am really so lucky that I was chosen by her!

In fact, I did not know that I won until Kathy leave a comment on one of my blog post. Eventually, I browse through her blog and found out that I win the 'consolation' prize! I still could not believe my eyes until Kathy reply my e-mail.
