BLOG AWARDS AND A CARD

Hello friends!

I have received a few awards in the past weeks and wanted to share them with you all.
I always get so excited when I get them. It always feels so good. But, you all know I like to share them with all my followers and I am asking you to feel free to grab the ones you do not have already. It is always hard to choose whom to give them too..

This one is the 
Versatile Blogger Award 
and it comes from my dear friend
Pam
 and
 from my other dear friend
Sheila aka Sassy Lady

 --------

This one below I didn't have and my dear friend 
Brigit
was very thoughtful too, and made me a proud owner of the  
Cherry on Top Award. 
 Thanks so much Pam, Sassy and Brigit for the beautiful awards.
Thanks from the heart!
(Remember that you can click on their names to go their blogs and get inspire for sure).

Now,
I have a card I made the other day, actually I made two with the same cut  from the
Straight from the Nest Cricut Cartridge.

Hey, chicka
 You can find this cage on page #35 of the handbook. I cover the bird with the one I punched from one of my Fiskars paper punches.
I can't remember the papers I used but the copper dots that I love so much are from a small bottle of dimensional fabric paint. The brand is Polymark and I got it from a ACM, M's or Walmart. I know it was from one of those places and the color is Light Bronze. You put a small drop on the paper and flick it with your fingers to flatten it a bit and voila...you get these darlings.
-----------
This is the second one.
Chirp Up
 The card base I used for both cards is  from A Child's Year,
page #50 I believe
(I better start making notes of what I do and what I use so I do not forget :)
I am so sorry. I promise I will get better).
This card I gave to one of my son's friends to give to his mom who is battling breast cancer.

The sentiments "Hey, chicka" and "chirp up" 
are from my  
Robyn aka My Pink Stamper
clear stamp sets.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
