Hi everyone! Thanks soooo much for all your sweet comments - it made my day! I actually am feeling a little bit better today and managed to even get some laundry done - LOL! No stamping yet, but hopefully tonight! I do have some wonderful RAKs to share that I have received over the last couple of days AND I was nominated for an award - yeah! So, first the award! My sweet bloggin' friend Charmaine aka Oodabug Alley nominated me for the Most Excellent Award and I am truly honored that she did! If you have not been to her blog, my oh my are YOU missing out because not only is she one of THE MOST TALENTED stampers I have had the pleasure to "meet", she is also one of the sweetest! So, get on over there (but finish reading my post first - LOL!) And now, I have to nominate five folks for this award (only 5!) which is hard because so many of you are awesome but here are the ones I decided on!
Kathleen aka My Happy Place
Corinee aka Stampin with Roxy
Andrea aka Andrea Walford
Melissa aka Simply Pink
Heather aka Stamp With Heather
All extremely talented ladies that I visit regularly and who I am lucky enough to have visit me too! Now, some RAKs I received. All three of these cards are from my SBS9 bloggin group and what a nice group of gals they have turned out to be! I feel very blessed that they took the time to send me a card for my birthday! This first one is from Lulu - isn't it gorgeous! The flowers are beautiful and the background stamping is awesome. I love this card - thanks so much Louise!! This next one has such a cute little sentiment with it"have a chairful day" - teehee, isn't that awesome! This little cutie is from Manna - thanks girl! And next is a card I received from Amber - she outdid herself because this is gorgeous!! I love the embossing and the glittery look to the background, just fabulous! Thanks so much ladies - you made my day!
And of course, the fact of the day!
FACT #15
I have one younger sister whom I am very close to and love to death! Growing up I always wanted to have brothers - I don't know why, but I felt like I was missing out! But, I am glad that I have my little sis because we are great friends now (although growing up, were weren't always) and I love to spend time with her!

glad to hear you are feeling better but don't overdo it. It has a tendency to come back if you do. I had it for a week, yucky stuff
