I had 2 lovely surprises this week. I received a Blog Award from Katina. I was so pleased, Katina always leaves lovely comments about my latest 'creation'. Thank you Katina for your support.
In accepting the award I've had to agree to the following conditions:
1) You have been tagged, do you want to accept? YES! then create a post on your blog and post the love blog photo.
2) Link back to the person who gave you the award and say if you accept.
3) Choose 3-5 of your favourite blogs to tag, link these in your post too and tell the lucky people they have been tagged.
The aim of this award is to bring unknown good blogs to light, so we're asked not to tag somebody "with 3000 followers". I would love to pass on the award to these wonderfully talented ladies some of whose blogs I have followed for a while, some I have just found, but they have given me hours of enjoyment and inspiration.
My other surprise was that I had won over at Digis with Attitude! with my first ever digi image card!!!
Its back to my original love of stamping for this weeks card.
It is for my Daughter-in-Laws birthday. The image is one I bought when I first started stamping,(Stamps Happen - En Vogue Shoe) and although I love this stamp, it does get neglected.
The DP is from a Laura Ashley pack with flock papers that DD bought me a while ago and she keeps asking if I have used them, so, with the intention of using 'old' stash, thought the 2 went really well. I stamped an 'extra' shoe onto red pearlised card and coloured the buckle with a silver gel pen. I used Distress Inks around the image and used the red pearlised card for a mat. The ribbon was from stash (off a chocolate box I think).
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
