Someone turned 50 and a couple awards

Here's a card I made for one of my aunts that turned 50 although maybe she's not really 50 since she's a leap year baby ;p

I also rec'd 3 awards from some very very talented ladies that I will show you further down this post.



I love this Squeaky Baker from Whipper Snapper, he's so fun to color in with prismacolor pencils and gamsol:

And onto the awards, this one I received from two very talented ladies, Stacey and Marina, please check out their blogs as they both are very inspirational. This award is something I would give them!



This award comes with rules, I have to I must share 7 exciting things about myself, which I can't really say I have anything exciting about myself, so I will incorporate this with the next award that has a similar rule. I also need to share this with award with 15 wonderful bloggers.
First I would give them back to Stacey and Marina and the other 13 go to these amazing ladies: Enfys Cashmore, Sharon Caudle, Carole Lowe Beath, Shelly Bobrowski, Regina Easter, Jane Sossie, Susan, Julie, Glee, Donna, Tracy, Kazan and Laura

The next award is also from Marina. She also gave me the Sunshine award that I've already received from another very talented and inspirational lady, Susan.



The rules to this one are to list 12 things about myself, here goes...
1. I’m engaged to an amazing man named Scott
2. I was born in upstate NY but raised in MA.
3. I LOVE the Twilight Saga
4. I’m also into the Harry Potter series
5. My favorite author is Dean Koontz (right now I'm reading his latest book, Relentless)
6. I miss being on the BBTB design team (when I left due to way too many things on my scheduled I had to stop crafting for awhile).
7. If I had to choose a food that I had to eat the rest of my life, it would be sushi
8. Last movie I saw in the theater was this weekend, which was Remember Me. I highly recommend it.
9. Favorite TV show right now is Private Practice
10. I love paper

First of all your birthday card would make 50 feel real good! So cheery and that stamp is adorable! You do a great job with Prismas so I can imagine you'd be great with Copics as well. Secondly, I'm thrilled with the awards and so very honored. I'm WAY behind at posting but appreciate each and every one immensely. Thirdly, COME BACK to BBTB2. Not my call, but gosh, we all sure miss you! And last but not least, I hear you on the sushi, Dean Koontz, and those darn rub-ons. LOL Hugs, D
