A Gift Of Love

Thankyou to Julia from the depths of her Temple of Crafting for this award. Its one to pass on to people who have made a difference to you by their visits to your blog, the things they write, the interest they take. Its more than a little humbling to receive, but I do know what Julia means when she writes that its so uplifting to read posts from other people. I never dreamed that the blog I started just to see if I could, would turn into this chatty collection of new friends from all over the world. Its just a wonder where playing with paper can take you.

In return, and with great pleasure, I now have the challenge to send it on to 5 friends who have supported me. First of course, my dear friend Ali who spends more time guessing and commenting than she does actually making anything, but I wouldn't want her to change a bit. She's a dear and precious friend. Then without hesitation the talented and generous Debbie. Its absolutely her fault that I crossed the line from adding a stamped image on the occasional card to re-organising my busy room to make room for stamps, inks, pens, doublesided tape and *bling*. Then some new friends from the web... Lisa whose feline inspired blog is a favourite, and who always leaves a comment to brighten my day; Paula from Precioso whose creations are a delight and who's been leaving me cheery messages since the beginning; Michelle whose aptly named blog, Stamp & Smile, is full of friendly images and kind thoughts for her friends and family, and who has supported my blog for ages too.

Ladies, thank you all. Let's pass this forward and fill the world with a little more positive energy than it had yesterday. Lots of love........


  1. You are such a sweetheart!! It has been a pleasure getting to know you better and a joy to read your little bit of blogland!
    Hope to catch up soon.....

  2. That's only because you are so arty, I love seeing cards where people have been really creative. I'm going to go and check out your favourite books now...although I have about 5 sitting beside the bed that I still haven't read.

    Paula :)

  3. Aww have me down to a tee! Thankyou gorgeous lady and I'm thrilled to call you my good friend.

  4. I'm blushing!! Thanks SO much for the kind words and inspiration... I do believe blogging is more than posting a card! Building healthy relationships with cyber friends is precious to me!! Thanks again.... :)

    Now off to enjoy my LONG weekend.. He, He! (Not rubbing it in am I?) LOL!

  5. Oh, Carolann, what an utterly sweet thing to say. I'm so honored! I feel the same about you. To me the best part of blogging is the friends I've made all over the world... people I would never have met otherwise, but who have become real friends and bring joy to my life. You, of course, are one of those friends. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'd pass this award on to you as well.

    Have a wonderful day, and thanks for brightening mine!



love to know what you think.......
