Blog Award & Birthday Sale-A-Bration

Hello and Happy Wednesday!

I'm sorry I've fallen off of the radar yet again. There has been so much going on between family birthdays, getting tax papers together and filed, re-organizing and doing Spring cleaning.

Today I want to start by thanking the very talented Chat, at Me My Stamps & I, for sending me the Stylish Blogger Award. This is my first blog award and to get it from her just totally made my day!

Recipients of the Stylish Blogger Award are asked to... 1) Thank the donor... 2) Link to the donor's blog... 3) Share eight personal tidbits... 4) Pass the award on to eight other blogs... 5) Leave a comment on each.

Eight random facts about me:

8. I married my high school sweetheart the year after graduation.
7. My favorite cartoon character is Snoopy
6. My parents and I have birthdays 3 days in a row! (March 22, 23, 24th!)
5. I love reality TV. My favorite shows are Deadliest Catch & Whale Wars.
4. I have done crafts all of my life. I started with Fabric photo albums, then counted cross stitch, ceramics and then found my favorite craft ever in 2006 and I plan to stamp the rest of my life:)
3: I love Italian food...grew up on grandma's homemade Spaghetti sauce and I miss her and the sauce terribly:(
2: I love heavy metal music, but am starting to find that I like other music that I didn't like at the time I was growing up, like Journey, etc. Am I mellowing out??? LOL!
1. I'm looking forward to attending my first Stampin' Up! Convention this coming July (and I hope to see you there!)

I'm sending this Stylish Blogger Award to these very talented stampers:


I can't tell you how hard it was to pick just 8. I subscribe to over 200 blogs!

Today I would like to share a card that I made to swap at our last demo meeting. I'm sorry I'm so late sharing this card made with Sale-A-Bration items.

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Create-A-Cupcake

Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you have a great day!
