The ladies I am going to pass this award to are some of the most creative crafters in blog land. Each of them put me to shame. Yet they are friends of mine! I am so blessed to have these women in my life. They not only inspire me as far as my crafting goes, they keep me interested in continuing to craft period. I have had a really rough past year, and I have debilitating health issues I deal with daily. So posting often doesn't  happen here, yet these ladies are always here for me, even just to say hi, and leave a uplifting comment of encouragement, and care. I have never met any of them in person, but I tell you this, they are surly friends, Blends!! Please visit each of them, follow them if you do not already, and expect to be blessed by them all.

Because Karen, Amy and Susan also passed this award to me I am going to increase  the number of ladies I send this to.

To each of my Blends, you are each so special to me.  You have all touched my heart and my life in a way that has brought peace, joy, and friendship to me.  I am so happy to call you all "Blends".

I am passing this award to the following blogs:

1. Lisa at A Mermaids Crafts    Even though Lisa gave this to me, I cannot or will not leave her off my list:) Lisa is the kind of friend we all need in our lives. She is so creative and gifted and so willing to share herself. She brings such joy to me every time she comes to my blog( house) for a visit.  Her friendship is as special as her creations!  She is a wonderful person!

2. Susan at Cricut and Grasshopper     Susan is as sweet a friend as I have ever had!  She is very gifted as a crafter, and card maker. More importantly she is a loyal and truly great  friend. She has the most wonderful sense of humor! She brings laughter to my life when all seems so grim. She helps my life become "lighter".

3. Amy at Love to Crop      Amy was one of the first ladies to show me kindness and friendship and is still my friend to this day. The things Amy can do with a glass bottle is amazing! Her exploding boxes are incredible too, and her cards are wonderful. She shares her knowledge with anyone in need. She has a huge heart!

4. Karen at Kaleidoscopic Sparkles    Karen is a special  lady that seems to sense when I need a word of encouragement and she never fails to bring me up out of any funk I may be in. Her copic skills are to die for! When you visit her, take the time to always read her backstory, you will be blessed by her amazing heart.

5. Amy at Amy's Crafting Space   Amy is a special friend from almost the first day I starting blogging. I post and she is there within the hour to leave me a wonderful and encouraging comment. She too is a gifted crafter. She is very prolific, she posts her creations almost daily, lots of inspiration for all!

6. Sherrie at Sherrie Scraps with passion    Sherrie is a really talented crafter, she posts almost daily with great projects! She is also very sweet and generous with her encouraging comments. Sherrie almost always uses a cricut cut on her projects which I love. She also gives great instructions, and sizes, so we newbies can learn from her. She does great party decorations too! She can do it all:))

7. Candy at Candy's Craft Corner    Candy is another great crafter!  She makes amazing projects. She has only had her blog about a year and it is one of the most inspiring blogs out there, in my opinion. Candy is another gifted crafter that posts almost everyday with such wonderful inspiration. She is just a really sweet person. Be sure to visit her blog, you will be so happy you did.

8. Sabrina at Scrappin' with Sabrina    Sabrina once again is an awesome and talented crafter. She is also one of the sweetest people I have met here in blog land. She not only makes beautiful cards, but home deco items, party themed items, you name it and Sabrina can craft it!

I am sure many of you know these very special ladies, but if you do not, please give yourself a present and go to their blogs, and follow them.  Your life will be blessed by each of them, I promise.

Big hugs, to my "blends" here, but also to so many others I could have listed. I have a lot of very special friends here on the web.  Each so wonderful, creative, and loving women. Each I treasure!   Pam

  9. Hey Pam!

    Don't ever feel your posts are too long, I love reading them! I will be sending you an email as soon as I have a spare moment here, hopefully tomorrow morning! Today was such an icky weather day here and it threw my whole day off sadly. (Not to mention the arthritis, ugh.)

    I did want you to know though that I bounced the award back to you. Not that you have to repost it, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate our "blendship". Hope all is well!


  10. congrats on your reward. I have came over to follow you on linky would love it if you could join me also

  11. Hi Pam!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! I woke up to an inch of snow on the ground and was not happy :( I'm in full Spring mode...ready for the birds to chirp happily and the flowers to bloom!! But it is warming up to the mid 40's so the snow is quickly melting :)

    Regarding the settings I used on the carousel and roller coaster...the paper is a little thick, especially with the glittery surface, so I used 5 on the blade, 4 pressure and 3 on speed and set it to cut twice. I do have to play around with setting quite bit and I've ruined some nice paper in the process :)

    I hope you are doing well and feeling great!! Have a great week my sweet friend!! :)
