School Is Cool and a Blog Award!!




How’s your week going so far?  I’ve had another fantastic  week so far.  Monday was pretty quiet, Tuesday was spent cropping with the sweetest girl I know, and my hot air balloon card was announced yesterday as one of the five winners of THIS challenge.  Oh, and I got some really great happy mail yesterday, too . . . more on that at a later date.  Just can’t imagine that this week could possibly get any better.  Can it?!  LOL


School is Cool


I wanted to share a card that I made for a recent CARDS Magazine pub call – it was RE-JECTED!  LOL  But I thought it was pretty stinkin’ cute, regardless.  I cut it out using my Silhouette SD – do you have any idea how much I am LOVING that baby?!!  The cut file was purchased from Silhouette Studio (for $.75 cents!!)  I think I’ll send this off to my daughter, who is working as a long-term sub for a middle school English class for the rest of the school year . . . pretty sure she can use a little pick-me-up, right?!  Oh, and my heart wasn’t too broken that this card wasn’t picked up – I had two others that were!!  YAY!!




Lastly, my sweet blogging friend, Jen W. over at Jenerally Speaking, sent me a blog award.  Jen is so kind and generous with her comments.  She is forever bringing a smile to my face, and she’s pretty stinkin’ talented to boot!  Be sure and stop by her blog to leave her some love.

In accepting the award I have to complete a few tasks:

1.  Thank the person who gave you the award.

Thanks so much, Jen!!

2.  Post this award on your blog

You're looking at it, sistah!

3.  List 3 things that you love about yourself

I love that I can identify just about any reality TV star (you’re impressed, right?!), I love that I can flip my eyelids inside out, and I love that I can fit into the same size jeans as both of my daughters (most days).  LOL

4.  Post a picture that you love

Brecken March 2011

I not only love this picture . . . I love the little boy in it.  This is my sweet grandson, Brecken, who will be a year old in a few weeks!!  Seriously?!  I swear he was just born last week!!  Ugh!!

5.  Tag 5 people to receive this award

There are way more than 5 people who I would love to give this award to but I've managed to whittle down my list.  Here are the 5 fabulous ladies I'm passing the Cherry on Top Award to, in no particular order.

Terri – Fresh Cut Flours

Lori  – Stamp Scents

Ashley – One In the SAHM

Courtney – This Was Supposed to Be Easy

Michele – Studio MSG

Be sure to check out these talented ladies and leave them some love.  :)


Okay, that’s it for me today, friends.  I hope that your week is turning out as fabulously as mine is.  I’ll be back soon with more crafty sharing for you!!  Thanks so much for stopping by today . . . I so appreciate it.
