Some Beautiful New Awards

What can I say. I didn't have these awards and giving is still a lot of fun so:
First I would like to thank my very talented and blogging friend, Cheryl, at God And I On The Railroad Tracks for bestowing both of the following Blog Awards on me:

The above award is called The Marie Antoinette, a Real Person, a Real Award. The rules are:

1. Link to the person who gave you the award
2. Nominate 7 more persons
3. Link the nominees and let them know about this award
4. Post the award on my blog

The seven people are:

1. Card Crafted at A Novice Card Maker Lives Here - You need to stop by her blog. She does not create like a novice!!! Beautiful cards!

2. Jane over at Anything But Plain Jane - And her cards are not plain either!!! Go see!

3. Beryl at Beryl's Place. She lives in Wales and has some really beautiful cards posted too!

4. Erin at Cards by Fishlips - She is not only talented, but her son does some absolutely fabulous artwork. Don't miss her blog.

5. Cat over at Cat's Creations - Stop by and see what wonderful creations she creates even when she thinks she doesn't. Ha!

6. Jenny at Craft Heaven - I always love seeing her beautiful cards.

7. Nancy at Inkcicles- She has been in the process of moving, but it hasn't stopped her from creating beautiful cards.

The second award is:
The rules are:
1. Link to the person who gave you the award
2. Nominate 10 more persons
3. Link the nominees and let them know about this award
4. Post the award on my blog

The 10+1 people are:

1. Heather at Enchanted Stamping - You need to see how she decorates for Christmas, let along creating gorgeous cards! This award just really reminds me of her.

2. Coleen at Kiwi Cards and Crafts - Yes she is from Down Under and she really has some wonderful cards on her site!
3. Denise at Lavender Rose - She is in the United Kingdom. She has lovely cards using different mediums too!

4. Lindsay at Scraps 'n Stuff - She has just started her Follow Me list, has posted a couple of really cute and pretty cards and needs some traffic ladies!!! Let her know we want to see more.

5. Susan at My Paper Dreamz - Susan lives in Nova Scotia and has some really great and beautiful cards. She has just started her Follow Me list too.

6. Carole at Paper and Rubber and Inks Oh My - She is new to blogging and has only posted one card so far and it is just outstanding and beautiful too! She has also posted a Follow Me list!

7. Joanie at Paper Handmaiden - She has only stamped for a year and you should see what she has done! Wow! Some really gorgeous cards.

8. Norine at Crafty Sister's Blog - She does some very elegant cards and has just started a Follow Me list too.

9. Suzz at Suzanne's Stamping Spot - She has some wonderful creative cards and really elegant and beautiful designs.

10. Jennifer at Simple Flourishes - She does also does elegant cards. Check her out!

11. Pat at Rubbermaid - Not only are her card's fantastic, she makes and collects cards for kids at her local hospital. You need to see THIS POST and see if you can help out.

This is just a few of the really deserving people like you, but the rules. I chose based on people's blogs I was visiting, if they hadn't received awards, if they weren't getting the traffic they should, and/or if they were new blogs on the block. I really think these awards are meant to motivate and inspire. I apologize for the second update for this post. I couldn't let a good cause slip through our fingers. That's what they have done for me.....So thank you again, Cheryl, and thank you all for stopping by 'the blog' to look and share.
