Thank You!! And Blog Awards Go To...

I am speechless my dear friends.... speechless. The last few days have been pretty hectic and not very much fun. But then all my dear online crafting friends came to shower me with love and fun blog awards!  Thank you so much for lifting me up these past few days!!! It has taken me a bit to get back on these but I want to thank you each for the awards and pass them onto some talented crafters...

I got this wonderful Karma Award from Glenna: (Thank YOU!!!)
The Karma Award: These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
I would like to pass this award onto:
8.And last but not least IVY... (you can see her fab creations on her flicker acct).

I received the Lemonade Stand Award from Deanne and Gloria.
I remember first seeing Deanne's cards at 365 but her blog would never let me comment. I was troubled for days because I wanted to tell her how great her cards were. And here she is sending me love. Thanks Deanne! And Gloria is none other than a fellow 365 Cards DT Member and she is just AWESOME! SO much talent and love in that girl.
