Award Time....

So, I have been given really sweet awards by my fellow bloggers and to be honest I just have been so busy and scheduling posts out so far in advance (shhhh....don't tell!!) that I haven't played.  Well, I thought I would try to be better about that and Hilary from over at Hilary Scraps gave me this award:

Well, I will play but don't want any of the people I tag to feel obligated or anything - I'm sure some or even all of them have already been given this award and/or decided to pass it on or not.  I just like this one because it is making me take an extra second to leave more than just a comment on SOME of my favorite blogs.

Here are the rules:
(1) The winner can put the logo on their blog.
(2) Link the person you received your award from.
(3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
(4) Put links of those on yours.
(5) Leave a message on the blogs of the girls or boys you’ve nominated (I may not follow this rule - I feel cheesy when I do this).

1.  Beate - I just love her sketches and the talent that she possess in her little finger is more than I have in my whole body.  She is one amazing lady.
2.  Nancy Morgan - She makes such fun projects and I love her taste in colors and how she layers on her cards.  She's got an adorable new puppy too ;)
3.  Nancy Riley - I enjoy checking Nancy's blog in my Google reader when she updates.  She is so careful in her crafting that the layers are perfect and everything looks gorgeous.
4.  Laura - her sense of balance and style is amazing.  I love how she ties all of the elements of her cards in together so well.  Gorgeous stuff!
5.  Laura - I just love her fun style and reading her stories about work (she's a SOLDIER!!) and dating.  I'm amazed she finds the time to stamp and make such great cards!!!
6.  Becky - Her clean and simple style is so AWESOME!  I love it and enjoy checking in on her blog with google reader.  I am excited to be able to swap with her too!!
7.  Kristina - I don't think there has been anything that Kristina has made that I haven't LOVED. Her style is exactly how I dream mine to be - maybe someday!!!

As I said, I don't expect any of these ladies to play - they can if they want.  To be honest, I felt like I could have listed another hundred blogs, at least, but I had to stop somewhere and figured I'd follow the rules :)  To see more blogs I love, check out my sidebar.


  1. OMG! Aren't you just a sweetheart saying those nice things about me! THANK YOU so much for the nice award!

  2. You are so sweet, Marie!
    Thanks so much!
    Hugs and smiles


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate it and thank you for adding a little sunshine to my day.

Marie :)
