Honest scrap award from two lovely ladies

I'd like to thank Kate and Hayley for nominating me for this award.

According to Hayley:

"This award is bestowed upon a fellow blogger whose blog content or design is, in the giver's opinion, brilliant."

So thank you ladies, I'm very grateful.

The conditions of the award are:

  • I must list 10 honest things about myself

  • I must put a copy of The Honest Scrap Logo on my blog

  • I must select at least 7 other worthy bloggers & list their links

So here is my list of honest things about myself.......

  1. Always putting my family first, (then get upset, because I feel they put upon me)

  2. Love watching Neighbours and QVC

Hello :0)

Thought it was about time I started to blog again. Sorry for being missing for so long...

I have been busy with family life and a new job. However the little job I had working at the school, has finished due to loss of funding, so I am now unemployed again...still gives me more time to craft LOL.

It's half term holiday and DH & DS have been fishing all day, which means I have been crafting. I decided to make a Thank You card to send to all the fab people I have been working with at the school. So many of them made me feel so welcome when I first started. Circumstances on my last day, ment I couldn't say goodbye to them all, so I wanted to send them a card to let them know, how grateful I was for all their kind words.

Now I can't take the credit for designing this card. I saw it somewhere some time ago, but I cannot remember where, so I cannot give credit to the person who designed it. Sorry...

Certainly Celery DP
Pale Plum Card stock
Pocket Silhouettes, Thank You Kindly stamp sets
Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon

Now, I need to thank Kate and Hayley for leaving me an award. I will be back to post about that later....
