Great Way To Start The Week!

No cards today but some fun and happy little tidbits.  

First of all this morning I discovered that not only did I have a new follower, Kirsty from New Zealand, but she came across a card of mine from April, added it to her Pinterest collection (or board or whatever it's called) and CASEd it!  Kirsty has set herself a challenge "to attempt one of the beautiful recipes, crafts, or diy projects found on pinterest each day for 365 days."  She's been a busy lady and my card marked Day 89.  There's all sorts of fun stuff on her blog so check it out.  
Back in July while I was away I received the Leibster blog award from Jenny of Crafting in the Country.  Jenny reminded me about it a couple of weeks later and I still managed to lose it in the jumble that passes for my brain!  I'm finally getting around to acknowledging it and passing it on.  The conditions of this award are....
1) Create a post on your blog and post the award.
2) Link back to the person who gave you the award and say if you accept.

3) Choose 3-5 of your favorite blogs to tag, link these in your post too and tell the lucky people they have won the award.

As the aim of this award is to bring unknown good blogs to light, please don't tag somebody with 3000 

Cheers for the award, Jenny, and I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to thank you!  If you haven't checked out Jenny's blog before then head on over to it right now and check out her card collection.  She regularly makes my jaw drop.  

I'd like to pass the award on to the following bloggers:
Kirsty of 365 Days of Pinterest Creations - How could I not love someone who CASEd my card! 
Jocelyn of Red Balloon Cards - Her cards are bright and fun and she's a fantastic blog buddy!
Therese of Lost in Paper - I don't know how many followers Therese has since she's on Wordpress but I do know that she has a fun playful style that never fails to bring a smile to my face.

On top of that coolness I also sold $60 worth of cards while getting my hair cut today and then came home to find that I'd won blog candy from Lynn!  Whoop whoop!  Here's hoping my good luck holds out for the week and that Hurricane Katia continues to give us a wide berth.  Have a good evening all!  :)

Now that qualifies as a great day...and I'll say a little prayer that the hurricane stays away from you!
