From Jeannie. Now, Jeannie is one of the happiest bloggers that I know. She absolutely makes the cutest, most fun cards each and every day AND she is silly cute! She has the happiest spirit and I love visiting her blog every day to see what she has crafted for us to view AND to get a "have a happy day" from her. Do check her out at http://dragonflyjourneys.blogspot.com/. She will definetly lift your spirits. Jeannie has given me the "Honest Scrap Award". The rules for this award are: 1) I must thank the person who gave me the award and list their blog and link
2) I must list 10 honest things about myself so here goes....
1. I love chocolate. I don't care what kind, I just love it all!
2. I absolutely, with all my heart, LOVE being a grandmother.
3. I love Auburn Football and basketball.
4. I never went to college. I regret it now, but at the time I was done with school!
5. I've been working since I was 15. Full time since I was 18. (and I will be 48 this year!)
6. I would love to own a scrapbooking store.
7. I would like to be an SU demonstrator, I just don't have the clients for it locally.
8. I would love to be a better stamper.
9. I wish I could learn Photoshop Elements. I have the software, but I need lessons bad!
10. I love paper crafting and all of the wonderful friends I have made thru doing this craft and my blog.
Now, on to the next award. This one is from Maz. Now, let me just tell you....Maz is aMAZing!! She creates some of the most beautiful cards and gifts I've ever seen. She is so blessed with a creative mind. I wonder sometimes, "how did she think of that?!" Maz is also so very kind and always leaves me such thoughtful messages. Do yourself a favor and check out her fabulous creations at http://natures-workshop.blogspot.com/. Maz has awarded me the "Gift of Love Award". There are no specifics with this award you just need to pass it onto 5 people. What a lovely award. Thank you so much Maz!! So, I will pass this award along to some 'ausome' ladies who always leave me the "gift of love" with their warm and friendly messages for me:

365 Cards - Day #80 - Plaid - use plaid on your card
365 Cards - Day #81 - Squares - use at least 5 squares on your card
The Pink Elephant - Challenge #15 - Monograms/Letters
I started with some Basic Grey plaid paper and added some green and red cardstock and then the D monogram, cut from the Base Camp Cricut cartridge. I added some colored twine and a charm that I made using shrink plastic. Then, I cut some metal into squares and added some washers that I colored using alcohol inks. I think it's a good "manly" card for Dad. What do you think? Thanks for stopping by!
