Now on to the AWARDS!

I got this award from Sherry Cheever and also from Paper Patti ( Patti Behan). THANK YOU. I also got one from Jenna Franklin, a LONGGG time ago...and never had time to get that one done. YIKES!! Sorry!

Here's the scoop...

This award is for blogs you really like to visit. As most of the awards go, you are to nominate seven blogs with their blog links, email them, post this award on your blog with the link going back to the person who awards you the award, and then they nominate or award seven blogs.

My choices are...

1. Suze...not only for her creations...but because her posts are SOOOO funny. She always says that the only reason she has a kitchen is because her house came with one. She makes me laugh, because she is quite serious about that! I can tell!

2. Linda Cain...she's the queen of metal & doodling. Tons of inspiration on her blog. Check it out.

3. Katie Watson...for her totally cool & unique style. She can pair red with anything & make it look sooooooo good.

4. Lisa Pace... because she is THE queen of classy glitter. Now she's on to something new. MOASICS, using a kit from Ranger.

5. Ali Edwards... I finally got to meet her when she demoed in Ranger's CHA booth. Just as I expected...She's TOTALLY cool & oh so nice. She's the originator of ALI DOTS, made with alcohol inks.

6. Claudine Hellmuth...another art chick with very funny blogging. Her new "sticky back canvas" from Ranger is a great new toy. It sure makes things so very convenient & quick.

7. want talent & inspiration?? For me...he's the ultimate! I'm happy to call him my friend.

If you're still here...

Whew! I guess it's a good thing that I've been updating my blog, huh? Thanks Miss Wendy...oops sorry Rick....I mean Mrs. Vecchi! OK, I'm going through my lists of favorite blogs in 2 minutes....does this mean that I can't put yours? Drat!

Linda Cain said...

LOVE the watch, and thank you for the honor of the award with so many terrifically talented people!

My blogger thingy wouldn't let me add comments for a bit, and then it added one to the wrong post...or I did!!!
Anyway, your talent is amazing, but your friendship is of even higher value to me!

Your Friend in ART,
