An award & 1 month to Sale-A-Brate

Well they say slow & steady wins the race, so here I go trying to catching up with posting the cards I've been making.
First of all though, I have to send a huge smiling thank you to the lovely Karen Rogers who has very kindly given me a lovely blog award. Karen is a SU Demo in Auckland & if you haven't found Karen's blog, go now & check it out. Oh & do NOT miss her totally fabulous ginger blossom mini squash album.

I'd also like to pass this award on to some awesome bloggers that I haven't nominated before (I don't think!) but always check out!

Kirsty at Kirstys Card n Scrap
Jean at Stampin' Cos it's Fun
Robyn at Rainbows by Robyn
Danneil at Danneil Linardi
Now before I go & get Cara (why am I always blogging just before pick-up?), here's another card I've made in the last month, this time with 'Botanical Blooms' – one of the lovely & FREE Sale-A-Bration sets you can earn until the end of February.It's a lovely 2 step set, with very delicate flowers & leaves. I used my trusty stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the images. Otherwise, the card is pretty self explanatory – layered Spring Showers designer paper & a greeting from 'Cheer & Wishes'. Just e-mail me if you have any questions.
If you'd like to place a $100 order to earn 'Botanical Blooms' or 1 of the other SAB sets free, just e-mail me & I can have your order shipped anywhere in Australia (that is if you haven't already got your own Demonstrator!)
Still have lots more to show you when I have more time, so in the meantime, keep stamping & thanks for visiting.
PS: Thanks to everyone for the lovely comments on the little handbag card from this post from. I think I've e-mailed templates to all those who requested one, so if you haven't got yours, just drop me an e-mail.
Stamps: Botanical Blooms, Cheer & Wishes
Card, kraft, whisper white, so saffron, Spring Showers designer paper
Ink: ruby red, groovy guava, old olive, certainly celery

Gosh Di, this is such a wonderful surprise to recieve a blog award from you. The admiration is mutual because I love checking out your beautiful creations also.
BTW, I had not been a big fan of this stamp set until I saw your card and I really love what you have done with it.....especially the colours.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for my very first Blog award! It means so much coming from someone as lovely & talented as you! Now I have to figure out what to do with it - ha ha! Might leave that until the morning when I hope to be feeling more awake.

As usual, love your latest post & can't wait for the next.

Thank you again & take care.
