I am delighted to receive this award from not one but TWO LOVELY LADIES

 Leigh - - a blogger with a heart of gold who makes the most beautiful cards to donate them. And she is so full of love, cheer and humour at all times. She provides me with so much inspiration...
Shirley-Anne - - I admire her talent for making the most effective cards with such grace. More than that I look up to her in ways more than one for her stoic approach to life... She has been through a lot in the past few months and has bounced back with such ease.

The usual number of blogs to receive this award are 3 to 5 


I will be passing this award to twice the number of blogs since I have received it from 2 ladies. So lucky me and lucky all of you... Lol!

Okay, before I start waffling again here goes my list:

Sandra -  - She uses the most wonderful papers and images for her cards and turns them into even more stunning creations... and to top it all she is such a loving and caring person. Even if she is famous I cannot resist giving her this award for the simple reason that she has brought me so much joy. It is just a tiny way to reciprocate. 

Lynn - - You have to check out her classy and elegant cards... She knows exactly what to do to make her cards stand out. And she provides me with so much inspiration and motivation - NEVER missing to post her lovely comments on my blog... I do know that she is famous already but please I could not overlook her.

Helen - - Such an amazing crafter - makes so many different arts and crafts... and is blessed with incredible amount of patience. Makes flowers, does quilling and a host of other stuff.

Monique -  - A lover of recycled stuff and makes much more than cards - all of which is delightfully impressive. I love her weekend linky parties - do check them out...

Andrea - -  Another gifted crafter - makes such pretty, pretty cards with so much charm and writes the most touching posts.

Fat Monica - - She is into ATCs... and makes real neat ones. An ATC specialist - unusual that!

Shelly - - She is into photography, paper crafting, scrapbooking and a host of other lovely things...

Philippa - - She is into quilling and oh-so-gifted... makes the most wonderful quilled creations.

Maria - - Her cards are really stylish... and she has a kind heart to donate them to great causes). 

Marie - - She makes such beautiful cards and I just love reading her posts. A lady with such a positive and kind attitude.

Please do visit them and see for yourself what they do... it would be worth it, I promise you that.

There are a couple of conditions for the award :

The aim of this award is that we bring unknown, good blogs to light, so I would ask you not to blog fellow bloggers that already have 3,000 followers.

You have been TAGGED and want to participate?

Then create a post where you post the 'LOVE BLOG' image.

You should also blog the persons link that gave you the award and inform her/him that you accept the award.

You can then choose 3 - 5 favourite blogs which you also link in your post, then each blogger will inform you that they have been tagged.

As Leigh has put it in such wonderful words, "It is okay if you are too busy to accept this award, I understand".

Hi Monica

Hi Monica I found your link on my friend Helen's blog and came over to check you out. Looks like you are giving out awards today, but I'll come back again when you are crafting. I think it is great that you sell your cards and donate the proceeds. One day I wish to donate some of my cards to the sites that collect for a good cause (military, nursing homes, hospitals etc). Right now I don't have time to make too many cards, but one day...Take care!
