Happy Saturday and Two new blog awards!

The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award

The first one I received is from the very sweet Ali Hann (  I'm honored that she chose me for this award.  Ali is a cardmaker extraordinaire.  It would be great if you'd visit her blog and give her a little love.  If you like her work, you can follow her.

Thank you so much Ali!

The rules for this award are to thank the giver, tell 7 things about yourself, and pass the award on to eight other bloggers.

So here we go with 7 facts about me....
  1. I use Copic Alcohol Ink markers and Prismacolor pencils to color the images on my cards.
  2. I was married 23 years in a former life.  I miss having a life partner to share things with but I'm happy being single too.
  3. I am currently unemployed and looking for a new job.  What a PITA!
  4. I spend too much time online.
  5. My favorite treat is a Braum's banana split!.
  6. My craft budget is non-exisitent since my layoff but I had a nice stash built up before I lost my job so my crafting doesn't suffer much at all.
  7. I own 2 Cricut Expressions and a Silhouette SD, none of which have been utilized very much since I discovered Copics!
And now for the list of bloggers who I am passing this one along to:
  1. Amy J -

Happy crafting!


  1. Thank you so much. I was "here" earlier looking at today's dog card, didn't know I would be back so soon, and for such a nice reason. Thanks again for thinking of me. I truly, truly love your work. (When do we get to see some of your dolls and jewelry?)

  2. Awww.. Thank you for the award!! You are such a blessing in so many people's lives!! Thank you soo much hun!!


  3. Thanks sweetie!! I love ya!!

  4. Thanks so much!!!! You are such a sweetie pie ;). I can't wait to pass this along!

  5. Thank you so much for thinking of me. I did get your message. I may be brave and try and do the award with this laptop. We will drop off my computer on Monday to see if it can be fixed. Have no clue how long that will take and if it can't then off to buy another which I really don't have the money for. So to make a long story short, I am going to try and learn this computer as I may be stuck with it awhile and if I have to get another it may also be windows 7. (I am already going through withdrawls...LOL.)
    Any ways, thank you so much...I love the award. I also love your cards. I tried to comment twice on them already and all I did was loose your blog and had to start all over. Thanks again.


I love hearing what you have to say so feel free to leave a comment.
