Thank You! and The BFB Award!

Hi Everyone,

Today I have some Thank You's to pass out to some really wonderful people. Sometimes its the little things that count and thoughtfulness of good people that really make life enjoyable. I had a little bit of both this past week and want to Thank everyone!

Pati's Kisses

First I want to Thank Lynda Nielsen from Lynda's Scrappy Place and who is also Co-Team Leader for The Digi Bells Design Team. I had stopped at the Digi Bells DT blog and Lynda had made a gorgeous card using a new Elizabeth Bell Digital stamp called Pati's Kisses (This link is the card that Lynda made). Along with her card, Lynda had a little Guessing game which was to be for fun. She asked three questions about her favorites that she included in her card. Well to my surprise...and everyone else...the next day I found out that I had answered the favorites correctly and another surprise, I had also won the Pati's kisses digital stamp! What a wonderful and thoughtful surprise!! Im still smiling here, it really made my week!

Below is the card that I made from this adorable Elizabeth Bell digital image. You can purchase this digital stamp HERE. I am also going to show a closeup of the image, which is so adorable!

The BFB Award

You know how sometimes something really nice happens when you least expect it and it just touches your heart? I had one of those moments on Sunday when I received an email from Patricia St. Martin who owns the Rubber Stamping is My Game blog. I visit Patricia's blog often and she makes some amazing cards! She had asked me to stop over to her blog because she had a surprise for me! Another surprise??? Wooohooo! Im starting to love surprises...LOL

Well to make a long story a bit longer, Patricia gave out some BFB Awards for visiting her blog and I was named one of the recipients. (Insert Huge Smile here). What a sweet thing to do when all I was really doing was visiting and enjoying myself admiring her work.

Here is what I found out about the BFB Award:
There are no requirements attached to this award. It is just an opportunity to recognize and say thank you to the wonderful cyber friends that frequent your blog. Without them..... our blogs would not be the same!!!

In the same spirit, I would like to pass it along to some of my regular blog visitors (listed in NO particular order). Thank you ALL for visiting my blog and putting up with some really rambling posts..LOL You all deserve a reward just for reading my blog some days! I truly appreciate each and every one of you and the support that you have shown to me in my short time (3 months) at blogging.

Please take the blinkie for your blog and pass along a smile to someone who may not expect it. I know it made my day!! Thank you Patricia!!

Patricia - Just incase you want another!! *Hug*










If I forgot anyone, please excuse my bad memory here. Please take the blinkie for your blog and pass it along too!

Have a fantastic week everyone!
