Whoops & Thank You!
I received this wonderful award from one of my followers! How fun is that. To have someone unknown to me send me this award for being inspired by my blog -- TOTALLY AWESOME! Totally validated - that's why we have blogs right??? To inspire other stampers~ I do have to say I am late in posting this, I put it in my pending file and [NO SURPRISE] I was too busy stamping and forgot about it! I am now rectifying that.
I guess I need to tell you 8 things you don't know about me and then send this fun award on to 5 other bloggers. Okay, let's see
1. I have a 17 year old son
2. I have been married 25 (!) years this year
3. I am a semi retired Store Manager of Starbucks who now works part time 20 hours a week
4. I smoke (which is REALLY stupid)
5. I am 15#'s overweight - this has happened due to STAMPING all the time over the last 2½ years!
6. I have 2 puppies who are now 4 months old
7. I am originally from Seattle, Washington and totally LOVE living in Arizona - no, I do.not miss rain :)
8. We had a pool built at the end of last summer and about the time it was done, the weather turned so I have only used it about 6 times! I can't wait for the hot weather so it will get warm (it is currently 55) so I can SWIM and get off my 15#'s!!
It is my pleasure to forward this Blog Award to:
Karen Knegten - Studio at the Lake. Her blog is fairly new, however, she puts out some gorgeous work on her blog! She has email sign up and I highly recommend signing up! You will not be disappointed!
Colleen Dietrich - Dietrich Designs - I have also been receiving daily emails from Colleen's blog - again, an amazing stamper, who because her work ROCKS, is the newest Team Member on the Speedy the Cat's Blog Team!
Susan Raihala - Simplicity - The most FABULOUS CAS stamper around! I also get her blog by email - she is totally awesome with her humor and the teaching of doing the PERFECT CAS card! Because of Susan, I have fallen back in love with creating CAS cards! Thank you Susan!
Geri Utterback - Geri's Cards - There really is only one word to describe Geri's creations; STUNNING! - I KNOW my jaw will hit the floor every time I visit her blog, to be able to color like her~~ I would be in heaven!
Roxie Glaza - Paper Scaper - Roxie is the Technique Queen. She just inspires me to try new techniques with my cards. I don't always do it, but she does inspire me! She always tells you HOW she made her card -- it really is an informative blog, along with some beautiful eye candy!
Again, thanks Lisa M. for sending me this award! I really appreciate it~~
