I'M ON 'CLOUD NINE' JUST NOW ...

We were out with a large Group of friends yesterday for a leisurely Tapas Lunch to celebrate hubby's birthday.     

Just before leaving our villa to meet the others I checked FB to find that Jackson's judges had awarded me first prize for my drawing 'Senor Molina' .... I still can't really believe it now.    

I had lots of votes from lovely people and it had made the top three in the People's Choice section so I was looking forward to receiving a runner's up prize of 12 pencils (randomly awarded by Jackson's).  I've actually won a Limited Edition Designer set of 120 Supracolour Caran D’ache Soft Aquarelle Coloured Pencils in a red box designed by head of fashion house Lanvin, Alber Elbaz.  This set is worth £500.

Wow wow wow!!!

Thanks Hilda, Jan and Jo. We leave Fuerteventura on Tuesday and once home on Weds I have to get straight to work to complete the Christmas portraits. The 2 spaniels are very close to completion but I then have 3 cats to portray - 2 for Christmas and one for early in the New Year (Birthday gift) so I shan't worry about the cold ... will just wrap up warm and crack on with work. They'll all be done in pastel (for speed) so I won't get to 'play' with the new pencils for a while.
