My very first blog awards!

I'm really thrilled to get these awards!

The first is from Sally Atkins.  I've been following Sally's gorgeous blog for some time and I just love her colourful creations.

The rules for this award are:

  • Thanks the person who gave me the award - Thanks, Sally!
  • Put the award on my blog
  • List three things I like about myself
  1. I'm generally cheerful and optimistic.
  2. I'm a big softie and cry far too easily (not sure if I like that after all LOL!)
  3. At 51 my hair is barely going grey!  Superficial, moi???
Post a picture I love:

I know the quality isn't great. I tried to adjust the brightness.  This is me with my two sisters on a weekend in Glasgow last November and we had a blast. Sisters are wonderful and I have the two best sisters ever!

Now, to pass the award on to 5 other lovely bloggers with that little bit extra: (this is hard, there are so many inspirational blogs out there!)

  1. Edna
  2. Deirdre
  3. Pinky
  4. Eileen
  5. Chris
The second award comes from Dianne who I began following recently.  I struggle to make a card some days and she makes HUGE batches!  You go Dianne!  Wish I had your mojo!
