I'm Blogging As Fast As I Can

Oh my it seems the days are just speeding by at the blink of an eye. So much to catch up on again today. First off am Thrilled to say I was published in The Newest Stampers Sampler April/May issue.
Was a nice surprise as I had not sent anything in for this issue. During the time for the call of entries I was still recuperating. I spied a couple more of my Lovely blogger friends Lynne Moncrieff and
 Deb Corder who also have wonderful pieces published in this issue, Congrats Ladies!!!
My card features stamps from Artistic Outpost Birds of a Feather and Paris Exposition.

 I was also Featured in the Lovely Miss Cindy's Whimsical Musings Magazine Along with the beautiful works by Dora and Cindy, who she herself was just published in Creating Vintage Charm. Congrats Cindy!!!! and Thank you for including me in your Wonderful magazine.

A few Thank Yous.
A shout out to Kim from Art Joy Stuff
 Who sent me this wonderful collage hanging and darling bookmark when
 I joined up for the PIF game on her blog.
Isn't it beautiful!! If you'd like to get in on the fun, Some of the gals that signed up on mine still have some open spots. Go grab yourself a place and Pay it Forward!!

From Kim at A Gypsy Angel Who made me the most amazing scarf.
Its so soft and just my color and its still cold here so I can enjoy it now.
Thank you Kim you are an Angel!!!

And I can't forget a lovely award from my fellow bloggers.
From Toni at My World... Sort of and Gerri at Its all Treasure

Here's how it works. Give credit to the one who sent it. Thanks Toni and Gerri!!!
Tell eight things about yourself you might not already know, then pass this on to eight new bloggers.
Oh I hate this. You All deserve an award!!! 
How can I just pick eight???? More like 80 or 800.

1. I Love the sunshine and warm weather! So why am I living in Idaho?
2. I could live on salads, mocha's and chocolate. Not necessarily in that order!!
3. I'm a night owl and hate early mornings.
4. My hubbums takes care of most of the cooking and cleaning these days,
 How else do you think I get so much done here! LOL.
I told him... I did the first 30 years he gets the next, He wasn't amused!!!
5.I teach private art classes to a very talented young lady who will be my new apprentice soon
in my mural and faux painting business.
6. I Love watching Survivor so don't bother calling when its on I won't answer! LOL
7. Would Love to travel if I could afford to.
8. I didn't really know if I wanted to share this or not,
 but looks like I have to have neck surgery very soon. Here we go again!!!!

The hard part.
Eight bloggers I've never given an award to..
Be sure and stop on by for a visit, your gonna love these gals.
Suzz at Suzz Stamping Spot ,who's work is always stunning!!
Jo at My Paper Playhouse who besides her lovely art, writes the most amazing short stories.

to capture every ones attention with her wonderful art.

An award, from you. Did I read that correctly? That is so sweet, thank you so much.
P.S. To go through another surgery, hat is so unfair.

Lynn your work is always so fabulous and I'm like everyone else I don't know how you get it all done! Neck surgery as in replacing disks? I had it done a few years back and it was all a good thing. Can't say the same for my back though. I'm sure it will be good for you too.

Hugs XX
