And the award goes to…..

Wow!  I feel just like an Acadamy Award winner. 

A dear and talented stamping friend Sharon Field passed this award along to a grateful and tickled yours truly.  And one of the fun things that tickled my funny bone is that Sharon resides in Florida…The Sunshine state!  How very appropriate.  Sharon’s posted some phenomenal projects this last week so give her blog a look see if you haven’t already.  Sharon is a regular on my newsletter lists and blog picks so trust me when I say you will be inspired by her work.

 And now the fun begins.  Per the awards conditions (see below) I now get to pass this award along in turn to 12 other bloggers.  I promised myself to include even those who don’t have fun cats – though loving animals was perhaps a prerequisite…and since bribery is not allowed this one is really going to be tough…have you seen my list of favorite blogs???

As with all awards and surprises, there are rules:

  1. Put the Sunshine Award on your blog and/or within your post.
  2. Pass the award to 12 other bloggers.
  3. Link the nominees within your post.
  4. Let them know they received this award by leaving a comment on their blog.
  5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received the award.  The hardest part, of course is narrowing it down to just 12 blogs!!

So… here are my awardees and as they say on all the award shows…..
