Another award :o)

Well, what a lovely surprise to find I have been given an award by Ei, (Eiglas)....you must check out Ei's blog as her work is an inspiration :o) Thank you very much Ei, I appreciate it, and will pass it on to seven other bloggers shortly..it's almost time to feed everyone again ...i.e. husband and pusscats, oh and then me :o) So, I will check back later and have a go...it's amazing how time flies when I'm on here ! I haven't posted the award on here yet, but will do later, plus the requirements that go with it :o)

Hot, humid days and awards !

Phew ! It's so humid here today I don't know what to do with myself...I have been learning how to upload and resize all my own pics of my cards and any photos, so I can do it as and when, without asking for help (that's my independent streak shining through !), so I will add some pics of my cats in a minute, plus one or two cards I have made. The lady who owns the cattery we take our cats to has said I can leave a few of my cards there, and she has asked for cat and teddy designs, so I have made a few up for her..I haven't taken many pics of the teddy ones as yet, but will add them as I go along. I have also been taking a few pics in the garden, we have had so many lovely butterflies this year, so I will put them up on here too, once I've tweeked them :o)
Also, I have had three awards on my Blog for a while now and would like to pass them on to five friends, who each have great Blogs..I take my hat off to you all, you seem to get so much done, while I feel like I'm just plodding along...I don't know how you all do it, but keep up the good work ! Now, I don't know if I'm doing this right, but I am going to say just pick whichever award you fancy, but before I do, here are five things I like to do:

1) Take my time in the morning, as I am most definitely a night owl !!
2) Watch a good film with a bag of Giant choccy buttons by my side :o)
3) Sit in the garden watching all the lovely birds
4) Visit a large craft shop and spend, spend, spend :o)
5) Take one day at a time

I would like to pass the awards on to Rose, Eileen, Lyn, Cheryl and Sandra - enjoy girlies, and thanks for all your support and friendship :o)

Two more awards !

I just checked the comments left for me and discovered I had been given two more awards, one from Fliss and one from Rose, thanks so much to both of you, I am really chuffed, and do appreciate them :o) I have linked them back to your respective blogs, so anyone reading this, click on the awards and check out these ladies blogs, they are well worth visiting, as is Lyn's (Spyders Corner), who gave me my first award, the little teddy bear, tucked away a little further down the side of my blog..go and find him, and have a look ! Bye for now xx

Burning the midnight oil !

It's 2.35 in the morning, and I am sitting here having a bit of a catch up on my blog as I haven't been on here for a while..it's very warm and humid, and as I feel wide awake I may as well be doing something, so here I am ! I have been making a few cards recently, but mostly I am trying to organise my craft room a bit, I seem to be getting nowhere fast though, as I keep finding things I had forgotten about, and then I go off on a tangent ..does that sound familiar to any of you out there ?! Anyway, I did make a card for our neighbour, using a spinner card, Jolly Nation decoupage, swiss dots Bazzill, glitter card, gems and peel offs, so I will load that on here before toddling off to bed, hope you like it, and thanks for passing by :o)
