It's raining here again! What a summer this has been, more like autumn. I made this card the other day along with another (although it is on its way to someone) but just haven't gotten around to posting it until now. It's another using the alota stamps I bought recently. I'm loving using these. There won't be much crafting for me for the next day or two as I am going into work tomorrow and Thursday to set up my classroom for the new school year as work officially begins next Monday for me - boo hoo! Anyway, I'm hoping to perhaps get started on my very first ATC this evening for my SBS swop and I really would like to participate in the Spoonful of Sugar challenge as I have been wanting to do this for ages. I have some new Sugar Nellie stamps and have an idea in mind for once. I also have a few birthday cards I need to get started on too! Do you think I might get them all done tonight? Wishful thinking ........mmmmmmm.

The lovely Emma, my wonderful SBS sister has given me the following award which I am so happy to receive. She is such a great person who is great fun, makes me laugh and is a great listener, especially when you do daft things! She knows what I mean! lol

The rules are:
1. The winner can put the logo on her blog
2. Link the person you received your award from
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs
4. Put links of those blogs on yours
5. Leave a message on the blogs of the girls you’ve nominated

After deliberating, as there are so many fantastic bloggers out there, I have chosen the following people:

Monica who is a great organiser and makes gorgeous cards
Kelly who is super talented and is a great sister in our group
Joana who makes the most fantastic handbags and is such a lovely person to chat to
Sue who inspires me every time I visit her blog with her wonderful creations
Zoe who is another lovely gal who takes the time and trouble to visit my blog
Tracy, another talented crafter who provides much inspiration
Jenn, whose blog I have discovered recently showcasing spectacular work


I have also received this award from another of my wonderful SBS sisters, Sammi who is such a sweet, kind person who is so talented. Thank you so much, it is much appreciated.

It's called the WYLDE WOMEN award and the purpose of it is "to send love and acknowledgment to women who brighten your day, teach you new things and live their lives fully with generosity and joy". Isn't that lovely?

The rules are:
  1. You can give it to one or one hundred or any number in between - it's up to you.
  2. Make sure you link to their site in your post.
  3. Link back to Tammy's blog so that she can go to visit all these wonderful women, and
  4. Remember the Purpose of the Award.
I know that some of my other sisters have also been given this award from Sammi but I would really love to give it to all of them too.
