As some of you may have seen on an earlier post I have been given an AWARD by Barb for my blog .And in return I was to award  7 other blogs I know that sounds easy but in reality I found it difficult. Not the choosing of the blogs but just the layout of the page I started working on it yesterday and after 2 hours this morning posted  it. I then had to let each of the 7 blogs know that I had awarded them and why and in return they had to do the same.Thinking about it now I suppose it is like an online chain letter.

Anyway the 7 blogs I chose no particular order.

Please if anyone you have not already visited these blogs please do as each one is an inspiration. I only wish I could have awarded the same number again as there are so many talented creative people writing blogs.


I had my first 3 sets of ATCS arrive for the swap I am hosting on milliande and they are wonderful.

I promised I would blog about them as they arrive.

I will do this alphabeticaly.

Bridget Wilkinson  UK
As with all of these 3 the camera may not do them justice as it was overcast this morning.These are the most beautiful shades of blue and turquoise highlighted with gold. I guess they are Zentangles  very intricate and delightful.

Christine Stuart  UK

A very tactile set of cards using Decoupage peel offs and glitter giving a tropical look .And once again great colours for this swap.Wait until you feel them.

Kitty Van den Heuvel The Netherlands

Another set of beautiful vibrant cards  I believe Kitty has used ink ? for the background or it may be watercolour but the cards are collaged with images of Carp and finished off perfectly with brads.

I am so pleased I decided to host this swap as the colours alone are so bright and cheerful for early spring.

Thank you again

Bridget ,Christine,and Kitty
