It was a nice surprise to receive this award from Nicki today - I haven't come across her blog before, so have been enjoying looking at her lovely cards.
It made me realise that I have been a really anti-social craft blogger for quite some time - I couldn't think of people to pass the award on to even, except 2 friends that I made when I was a more committed craft blogger! (see below). I changed my old craft blog ('Madness at the Malting') into our family blog, when I felt that crafting was taking over a bit, and wanted to re-prioritize things. I started this blog because I still love making, but I suppose I kind of forgot that there are so many great bloggers to mix with!
1. Copy this award to your blog
2. Link to the person who gave you this award
3. Identify 7 interesting facts about yourself
4. Choose 7 other bloggers to pass this award on to
5. Link to their blogs
6. Leave them a comment to let them know about this award
OK, these are the friends I would like to pass the award to: Pesc and Mariska - lovely people and great crafters!
I nearly forgot my 7 interesting things! Just read my other blog and see if you come across 7 things interesting enough. (Sorry - I have a cold right now, and it hurts to think!)

I started on Christmas cards at last! I stitched a felt gingerbread man together, and filled
it with wadding to make a Christmas ornament that can be removed as a little gift (It is just stuck on lightly with a couple of glue dots). The card layout is based on the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch.
PP: DCWV Christmas stack
Scallop edge cut with Sizzix scalloped card die
Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing folder
Art Warehouse Christmas circle stamps
Martha Stewart craft paper stickers

The challenge at DCM was to use a punch, so I used a Stampin' Up one that I've hardly ever used. I also decided to use up lots of old alphabet sets that I have accumulated - rub-ons, chipboard, stickers and stamps - and thoroughly enjoyed making it!

Lots of friends' birthdays coming up this month - I need to get making some cards because I have nearly run out somehow! I made this card based on the sketch at Mojo Monday, with K&Co Tag Pad, glitter shapes and spotty ribbon, and Basic Grey Papers.
