I have several awards somewhere that I need to put up, but truth be told I have no idea where I put them, I apologise to the lovely people who gave them to me. That is why one must do immediately and never put off until one has more time - because one never has "more time", and one should know that by now!

I like this award, it makes me feel as though I really am a creative blogger (humour me!), thank you very much Oma for giving it to me. x

Now I have to pass it forward and these are the rules:

The winner may put the logo on their blog. Put a link to the person who sent you the award. Nominate 5 blogs and put links to their blogs and leave a message for your nominees.

So, five people eh? That's tough!! There are so many great blogs out there. OK, my choices are:

Calvin - cos he makes me laugh with his creative mishaps

Maddy - my newest DT member and a true gem

Adele - Her cards always make me smile

Juliet - Lovely inspiring lady

Nicola - whose projects always amaze

Job done :o)

Gissa Kiss - Free Sentiment....

I don't know, I sit there for ages slaving away making a sentiment circle and then what do I do? I give it away! Ahh, I must love you lot!! :o) So my sentiment circle I made for the Sunday Challenge on Dottie's World yesterday is up for grabs, all you have to do is let me know you want it by dropping me a line. Click this link to the Charmed site and write your details in the online form (opens in a new window). Usual restrictions apply, the sentiment is for your own personal use only and must not be shared or used for commercial purposes.

I made this card for the Monday Mojo spot on Dottie's World (link in the right-hand bar), using my sentiment of course.

The card uses the fabulous Puddle Love image from the Love and Marriage collection.

Other products used here:

  • Basic Grey Ambrosia Paper
  • Black and White Bazzill
  • Imaginisce Paper
  • K&Co AB Lotus Tea Box Grand Adhesions
  • K&Co AB Lotus Tea Box Fabric Tag
  • Tim Holtz Metal Spinner
  • Treading Water border punch
  • Lots of Glossy Accents
  • Ink
  • My Gissa Kiss Sentiment :o)
I used the transparent coloured Puddle Love image against the sentiment and printed on white Bazzill. This shows that the sentiment circles can form an integral part of your design.

Fur or Feathers

Nicola's Challenge today on Dottie's World is "Fur or Feathers". I didn't hesitate for a minute before asking my friend Ozzina Ostrich, from the Animal Magic Download collection to pose on my card - and she agreed! Isn't that great?

I gave her a back-drop of three coordinating Basic Grey Eva papers
(and I do believe she posed for Basic Grey too! Just look at the paper at the bottom!!). The papers are distressed and inked and decorated with some BG brads. This is a large card, A5 in size, and Ozzina stands 16cm tall - and that excludes the feather son her head. The feathers are pink Marabou, just perfect for this challenge.
I made the "Gizza Kiss" sentiment, it seemed to me that on this card Ozzina looked as though she was holding out her wings for an embrace, so this was fitting. I am giving this sentiment circle away tomorrow so pop back and get it.
