Thank you Marsha for choosing me. Here's about the award:
This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY- nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement . Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to 8 bloggers who may then pass it on. I hope you will accept this award in friendship and know that you have inspired me.
Thank you Marsha for the award and for that special friendship we have. Hugs....

Used my favorite things:
Favorite things: Ribbon, ribbon, chipboards, glitter, bling, chipboard, gliter PP is by Rusty Pickle and Anna Griffen. The image I got at Expo in Houston a couple years ago. Chalks, stickles. metal spacers and a bling BRAD..... flowers from my stash.
After seeing a card of Claudia's it inspired to scraplift and make one for mycoworker, Sandy that's celebrating a birthday this week. Claudia's art work on her blog Pretty Pressings http://rosaswelt.blogspot.com/ has taught me that finishing the INSIDE of the card is as important as the outside. Her work is beautiful and always brings a smile to my face when I visit her. Please stop by and see her work.
My card was totally made from scraps... I love being able to USE WHAT I HAVE and make a card from leftovers. It makes me happy!
I love this little Tilda cupcake image for a birthday card. Another card from scraps - Basic Grey and Creative Imaginations. MM ribbon holders, offray ribbon, Nestibilities, Copics, chalk, Perfect Pearls sprayed on image after I colored it. Inside of card was decorated too. The flourish stamp is by SU called Baroque Motifs.
