I am just beaming with excitement!! Merry so graciously gave me this award...please go check out her lovely work here http://merrymadecardscrafts.blogspot.com/
Thank you very much for giving me my first award! I really appreciate your nice comments on my blog...along with the help you have given me! :)
So the rules are that I have to list 5 things I like to do each day and also pass this along to 5 friends. Here goes.
Things I like to do each day:
1. Eat breakfast ( I could never live without breakfast!)
2. Get online and see what lovely creations everyone is making (then try to actually create something pretty myself)
3. Chat with my friends/family
4. Spend time with my hubby (walking to get the mail, working on our new house, drinking tea and eating scrumpets...LOL! I LOVE my hubby!!!!)
5. Trying to catch up with a good show/movie
5 friends (I guess nobody really knows me yet because I am so new but I will call them a craft friend anyways)
1. Stephanie at Stamping and Sharing
Check out her wonderful crafts here: http://stampingsharing.blogspot.com/
I love her upbeat attitude....also funny and generous! She loves to give things away...one I these days I hope to snag one of her wonderful candies!! 8 hour time difference doesn't look hopeful for me though.
2. Linda at Payne Holler Cards
Her beautiful website is here: http://paynehollercards.blogspot.com/
She creates stunning pieces and sometimes offers good tips (like saving take out containers!)
3. La-La Land Crafts
Check out the weekly challenges and beautiful creations here: http://lalalandcrafts.blogspot.com/
I am thankful for a challenge that even newbies can enter! They don't require specific designer paper/markers or stamps (some of which I can't even afford!)
4. Get Sketchy
Check out the weekly sketch ideas and beadtiful pieces here: http://getsketchy.blogspot.com/
Another place a newbie can get sketch ideas and enter a wonderful contest! I like how you don't have to be a craft genius from the get-go to enter these challenges. Much appreciated!! :)
5. Deanne at Am I A Scrap Addict?
Check out her innovative ideas here: http://a-scrapaddict.blogspot.com/
This is a new one I have been following and I absolutely love how she reuses stuff (going green). Just today I read how she used juice lids to make a mini album! How cool! Thanks for such creative ideas...keep them coming!!
Okay, that just about wraps up my time for today. I better get some chores done before I do anymore crafting...boo! But it MUST be done!
Hope everyone has a great day and if I get my chores done fast enough I just might be back on here to share something I created!

No cards created the last few days...too busy with building a house. Boy am I exhausted! Here are a few more pics of our new place including about 3900 board feet of lumber we had sawed up to use from trees we cleared out.

Yesterday was my birthday but that doesn't mean I slacked off all day...I made this gorgeously sparkled card for my friends bridal shower. Followed the sketch here: http://fridaysketchersblog.blogspot.com/2009/08/friday-sketchers-66-sponsored-by-simon.html I also entered it in Penny's #4 challenge here: http://pennyschallenges.blogspot.com
Once again...my cricut saved me because I did not have gold flowers so I made my own!!

I want to start by sharing a small picture of our new property where we are putting a house...it is mostly wooded and we own a little over 19 acres so I can't show ALL my pictures!! This is the lovely view I will get from my front porch...I even bought the retired stampin' up lovely as a tree stamp set just for this reason!!!
I'm sure you can see why. :)
