Monday, May 25, 2009 gals rock....

I received this Lemonade Stand Award from Laurel and Katie. Laurel and I frequent a couple of the same sketch challenge blogs. I think that I intially met her that way and she has since joined in on some of the 365 Card challenges. Laurel has a way with the Amy Butler Goodness...she does such fabulous work with pattern paper...go check out her blog! Thanks again Laurel!!!

Hmmm...I think that I met Katie through a challenge blog....I was actually just trying to remember that last week when we chatted via memory really is horrendous and it keeps getting worse the older I get! Anywho's, you have just got to hop over to Katie's blog...she is super talented!! Here's the thing, she is one of those multi-talented peeps that uses both sides of her day she is a techie for a pharmaceutical company...oh yeah and check out her crafty space...oy vey.

I received this Gift of Love Award from the very talented Rose , Maz and Chrissie. I met all the gals via 365 Cards.

You've got to go see all of Rose's most fabulous cards. She uses alot of butterflies, birds and gorgeous paper blooms. Thanks for thinking of me keep me on my 365 Cards toes with all your cards!

Maz is another 365'er that is filled with talent!!! If you haven't checked out her blog, you really should. She tends to use alot of soft colors and her cards are gorgeous! Yet another gal that keeps me hopping on the 365 Cards blog:)

Chrissie is a gal after my own card makin' heart...her cards tend to be clean and crisp...hmmm...well, maybe a nice mix of clean and crisp and fun, fun, fun!
This award is from the very sweet Shari. I met her through the 365 Cards Challenges. You gotta go check out her blog!! At 365 Cards we are celebrating Cutting Cafe Week and Shari popped over to the Cutting Cafe and ordered up some goodies! She's a girl after my ♥crafty heart♥. Thanks again Shari for sharing the award with me..
