A BIRTHDAY RAK AND SOME AWARDS

Hi all!!! Whew - busy night with class last night, but we had a lot of fun!! I will show you the calendar we made after I teach this class again on Monday! But, today I want to share with you this really nice birthday RAK I received from my friend Denise, who is also the owner of Whimsy Stamps! Can you believe it? She sent me this really adorable card AND one of her new release stamps - isn't that image just precious???!! I am totally excited to ink this baby up - I have a friend who is having her first girl so this stamp will be perfect for her card!! Thanks so much Denise - you ROCK!!!!! I also have been very fortunate lately to have been nominated for some awards. I will apologize now, I am not very good about posting these in a timely manner, and it is not because I don't appreciate it (I do, very much!) but because my memory is not what it used to be, lol!!! These first one is from Dawn over at Daily Scrappin' Inspiration, thanks Dawn! This is a cool award that I am supposed to nominate five of my favorite blogs for. It was not easy, but here are my five picks:
(1) Rose Anne (Paper Delightz)
(2) Ila (Artfully Ila)
(3) Nikki (Bunny-Zoe's blog)
(4) Lisa (My Little Creative Escape)
(5) Angie (Schwoo! by stampin Angie)
This second award I receive from four different people: Dawn, Diane, Deb, and Risa - thanks ladies! I am supposed to pass this one as well, but it has been going around for awhile, so I am going to give this one to everyone who takes the time to pop on by and see me - I appreciate you all! Now, off to blurf a little before I have to fold the laundry - what an exciting life I lead, lol!! See you all tomorrow when I have my sample for Tamara's sketch!
