Awards and Other Stuff...

Hi All!

Hope your weekend is off to a nice start. It's pretty chilly here, but the sun is shining so I guess I can't complain too much. Not much planned this weekend either, maybe some stamping! :)

I don't typically post on the weekends however, I've received some awards and a tag and I thought I would share. First is the award...

I received this one twice. Once from Hanne and once from Erin. Both of these girls are talented stampers and it means a lot coming from them! I hope you'll visit their blogs to see what I mean, you'll surely be inspired! :)

The rules of this Award are as follows:
1) Post a link of the person who gave you this award.
2) Nominate 5 other people and give a link to their site.
3) Let the people who you have nominated know.
4) Put a logo of the award on your blog.

Now it's my turn to pass this award on, which is no easy feat as I know many, many, many talented and encouraging crafters who's work inspires me everyday. I'm not much for rules so this may count for more than 5 other people...

First, to my British blogging friends and stampers Bev, Jacqui, and Rach. Each of these ladies is incredibly talented and create the most fabulous card designs. They are a huge inspiration to me and I know to many others as well. Thanks for all you share girls! And then, I'd also like to pass this award on to my Whimsy Design Team, these ladies are fabulously talented and super hardworking. I am so lucky to have each of them! Thanks for all you do girls! And lastly, to the Stamp Something DT, your artwork helps to encourage stampers each and every week to join us in the challenges. You are all amazing and fun to work with each week!

Now, I was also tagged by Bev with a rather unique tag I must say! If you don't visit Bev's blog, you best be on your way there now, her work is always most impressive, you'll be very happy you popped over!

The rules for this tag are...
1: pick the 6th folder, and select the 6th piccy
2: post the piccy and an explanation on your blog about the piccy
3: select 6 others to do the same and let them know

See what I mean about unique, so I had to play along. Here's my photo...

I thought this was pretty funny, I certainly didn't expect this one. This is a photo of a box I made when I first became a Stampin' Up! demo. I had a workshop and wanted to make sure I had lots of different samples to share and what better than a box. I'd like to think I've become much more creative since then! Thanks for the tag Bev, this was fun! Now to tag 6 more people to play along with this interesting exercise!


OK girls, have fun with this one!

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back on Monday with some stamping to share, I hope! :) Until then, have a fabulous weekend.

Oh and if you need a stamping challenge, head over to Stamp Something and join in our Recipe Somethings, or visit the Whimsy Group on PCP and join our Blackness challenge, or even try out for the Whimsy guest spot for February, using a sketch. There's still time to enter all of these challenges.

Happy Stamping!! :)
