Some Wonderful Awards

Two posts today.

Over the past few weeks I have been honored (as many of us have) by some very wonderful and talented people with several awards. I appreciate you for thinking of me for these awards. It is nice when people leave comments and such to show that you are not just talking to yourself in cyperspace. : ) I haven't been ignoring these, but the hardest part is choosing people to give the award to because there are so many wonderful blogs out there, but also finding those who haven't already received it. So after lots of fun bouncing all over blogville and seeing lots of eye candy, I can finally post these. : )

I received this award from Karen at 6 Wacky Women. She has some amazing creations on her blog. Check out her stunning pergamano work...OMGosh gorgeous!! I stare at her work in awe...such patience and talent to do that!

For this award, we are to pass it on to 5 people, let them know, and post it on our blog.
1. Karen at KrB's Korner.

2. Camilla.
3. Judy at Joy in a JAR.
4. Jenny at One Krafty Kat.
5. Julie at Out to Impress.

This award was given to me by two different people. First was Barb at Made for Keeps. This sweet lady is a Whiff of Joy coloring Goddess! She has many beautiful creations, but I am always drawn to her WOJ colorings! I would love to meet Barb in person one day; have a feeling there would be some serious paper mischief and fun happening! : ) Also got this from across the ocean from Els at Els Online. Thought what Els said was interesting: "This award is called 'Marie Antoinette', but in fact it is Jeanne-Antoinne Poisson, better known as Madame de Pompadour, painted here by François Boucher in 1756. She had a great passion for literature and also for wallpaper by Jean-Baptiste Réveillon. I'm sure she would have adored all our great design papers!" A little history tidbit. :) Els does some really fabulous creations with the House Mouse images. Love them all!

The rules for this award are: Link to the person who gave you the award; Nominate 7 more persons; link the nominees and let them know about this award; post the award on your blog.
1. Karen at 6 Wacky Women.
2. My SU! Demo, Michelle at Michelle's Moments.
3. Susan and Susiestampalot.
4. Chris at Creating With Chrissy.
5. Deborah at Dream in Color.
6. Carolyn at P.M.S. etc.
7. Jennifer at Jennifer's Sweet Designs.

Most recently was this "Encouraged" award from Karen at Krb's Korner. This very sweet and super talented lady has me ooo-ing and ahh-ing at every post. Such beautiful creations!! Pay her a visit and see what I mean! It is definitely encouraging when people stop at your blog and leave a comment, or an award.

Nancy, congrats on the awards! You are so deserving of them and all the others out there in cyberspace! Thank you for the sweet comments; we would definitely keep the paper and ink flying if we meet in person --- which I too would love very much. Thanks for the "Encouraged" award. I means a lot. I'll have fun awarding this one, too.

I hope you are having a wonderful week!
