Have been ...

... tagged twice today ... from Jenny (Starcyl) and Irene ... and I wish to thank them both from the bottom of my heart for thinking of me. Now apparently, I have to open the sixth folder and put the sixth picture on here ... so here goes ....

... oystercatchers and seagulls on the shore.

Right, my next task is to nominate two others, and the reason I have chosen these lovely ladies, is that I don't think that they have yet been tagged (I could be wrong ... lol!):

Jo (Lavender) is my first choice and
Cathy is the other person I wish to tag.

Thank you all.

Been Given an Award ...

... by Rainbow Lady (Cynthia), and the award has been created by Ali, one of our new bloggers, check out her blog to see some wonderful creations. I was also initially encouraged by Wendy's work, so I would love to pass one on to her, and of course Cynthia who was also instrumental in my beginning a blog. I need to find 5 people in all that have helped me in blogging. My other three are:


So I would like to thank all these ladies for everything that they have done to encourage me and their wonderful creations too.

There is ivory flowersoft on the ladies collar in the large topper, Stickles Diamond on the snow on all the toppers. The "Thank You" A6 card is made using Say It With Flowers CD.
