Blog Award and Exciting News

Happy Friday to you all!
My fellow AnnaBelle team member Sue very kindly left me a blog award over at her blog and I wanted to say a HUGE thankyou! Sue makes really beautiful cards and has a clean style that I just love. Thankyou Sue!

Now it is time for me to choose some designers who I think reallly deserve to be recognised for their talent.
This award is to showcase some of the not-so-well-known blogs.  We have some talented crafters out there and this is one way for you to find new and interesting blogs.  All I have to do is nominate three to five blogs I read and want others to get to know .

If I tag you and you want to participate,  create a post where you post the 'LOVE BLOG' image. You should also blog the persons link that gave you the award and inform her/him that you accept the award. You can then choose 3 - 5 favorite blogs which you also link in your post, then each blogger will inform you that they have been tagged.

Special Note from the Originator:
Dear bloggers:
The aim of this action is that we bring unknown, good blogs to light, so I would ask you not to blog fellow bloggers that already have 3,000 followers.
The three blogs that instantly came to mind for me were:

Amy :
Amy has a beautiful clean and simple style that is very elegant and classy. Her photography of her cards is just amazing too - hopefully I will be able to take such great photos one day!!

I have had the pleasure of seeing Adele's work IRL and she is so talented! The way Adele embellishes her cards is so pretty and her off the page projects are just amazing too!!!

I have been following Wendy's blog for a little while now and I really admire her use of colour and adding the extra finishing touches to her cards.

I hope that you will have a look at these 3 lovely blogs - their creations are very inspiring!!

On another, very exciting note, I have some news to share! I have been chosen to join the Christmas Stampin All Year Long (CSAYL) team!!!! I have been checking this blog out regularly for a couple of years and when the opportunity came up to join the team, I quickly applied!! Anyone that knows me well, knows that I am a big kid when it comes to Christmas - I get right into the Christmas spirit, play Christmas carols all the time (much to the annoyance of my husband!) and just love that time of year. So an excuse to make Christmas cards all year round is fantastic!!!! I am joining some very talented designers who you can see over in the right sidebar. Thanks MacKenzie again for this wonderful opportunity!
