An awesome friend and touching award

My friend JAN surprised me with this special award for my blog. Jan and I have known one another for several years and each time she posts new creations I learn something new. I have dubbed Jan the official Queen of stamping technique. Jan can take a stamped card and turn it into and extraordinary piece of artwork using creative background and stamping techniques. So Jan, I thank you for this award and happily pass it on to bloggers who's blogs I thoroughly enjoy.

I pass this award to:
CINDEE - Cindee is an amazingly talented cardmaker and scrapbooker. Cindee's creative and beautiful pages inspire me.

GLEE - I think it was around the beginning of this year that I happened to be "blurfing" and discovered Glee's blog. I've been a regular viewer of her beautiful cards ever since and have also sturck up an online firendship. Glee's cards are gorgeous!

DEBBIE - Ah inspire me, teach me, wow me with your cards. Debbie's fun personality shines through her whimsical cards, but what will totally knock your socks off is Debbie's superior coloring ability. Debbie has taught me so much and I continue to learn from her.

ETHEL - We have known one another through a variety of stamping websites for several years. Ethel is one of the most talented artists I've ever known. Nothing she makes is ordinary, it is EXTRAORDINARY. You just have to see her blog to understand what I mean.

JOVI - When you visit Jovi's blog you'll be struck by her attention to detail, beautiful layouts that do not overwhelm the image of her cards. Jovi is such an artistic cardmaker. I drool over her work. And one more fun part of Jovi's blog is her motorcycle adventures. Jovi inspires me with her card making as well as her motorcycle riding skills and adventures.

MARY - Mary and I have traveled together through stamping websites, personal emails and blogs. Mary's blog is such a treat to view with her gorgeous cards as well as her wonderful scrapbook page layouts. I encourage everyone to check out her blog!

NANCY - Nancy is an amazing artist. Nancy describes herself as a "dabbler" but WOW, what a dabbler she is. Nancy makes cards but she also is a very talented in altered art and has often been published. Nancy also has recently created a line of stamps that are amazing.

So I thank you Jan for this touching award and I pass it on to the above mentioned ladies who's blogs I love.

  1. Jennifer, This is so very kind of you. I want to throw this award right back at ya, since you deserve it more than anyone else I know! Thank you, my dear friend. This is so kind of you!

  2. Jennifer, I am absolutely delighted that you would want to share this award with me! Thank you so much! You are such a dear!

    You asked a couple of questions on my most recent card post so here are the answers:

    Whenever I have "curled" ribbon it is using the Daisy Bucket paper ribbon. It is so much fun to work with: you can shred it like the ribbon at Hallmark and then you run your scissors along it to curl it.

    The sentiment I used was a rubon...I found it at the bottom of my rubon box and unfortunately it was all by itself so I have no idea what company makes it. Sorry.

    Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving me such wonderful comments. They sure warm my heart, my Friend!
