a thanks, some great blogs and a card...

Lorri nominated me for this blog award (thanks Lorri). I am so honored that people actually read my blog!

I have been so busy with wedding planning, I almost forgot to post this honor. Normally you nominate 7 other bloggers with the award, but I am going to link you to 7 of my (many) daily blog reads (which is hard to narrow down...because I have several that I visit daily). I don't know what I did before blogs...aren't they addicting?

Here they are in no particular order...Dawn Mcvey, Janet Phillips , Pioneer Woman, Kristina Werner, Jen Wolff, Julie Desper, Donna Boucher. I hope you enjoy visiting them...I know I do;D
Here is a card I made for one of my nieces. I used my Butterfly Kisses and the sentiment from my Little Lady stamp set from you guessed it, Papertrey (I love those stamps!). I manipulated the sentiment stamp to look like the butterfly's trail. This card started out really different and changed along the way (do you ever have cards like that?), I just kept changing stuff. Ashley finally said "mom...leave it alone, it looks fine" I guess it was good to quit while I was ahead, lol! Of course I had to add some "bling" to the wings with stardust stickles.
I hope your Thursday is Awesome! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies used (SU! unless noted): Butterfly Kisses/Little Lady stamp sets; Whisper White/Certainly Celery/Basic Black cardstock; Basic Black/Certainly Celery/White (craft) ink; Black Grosgrain ribbon (Michael's); Stardust Stickles
