Featured blogger

Hi bloggers,

As I mentioned in my blogoversary post, I would be featuring a beautiful blogger each month and here is my first:

Dear Sandra of

You know when I started blogging last year, I used to secretly crave for those awards, yes yearn for them, waiting when I would receive my first... and guess who was the first one to give them to me? Yes, you got it, it was none other than Sandra, the lovely Sandra. And then she went on to give me the second award followed by the third one - I just felt so proud to post them on my side bars... It meant so much to me.

Sandra makes the most beautiful layered cards with  much grace and beauty. She manages to find the cutest images to use on her cards and her colour schemes are always so wonderful. Her papers are the prettiest on the block, you can check them for yourself...seeing is believing, right?

She is a blogger with a such a gentle and kind heart... always leaveing me with encouraging words to read. I am a big fan of you and your cards, Sandra!

Hi Monica, CONGRATULATIONS on your first blogaversary! You are a wonderful, sweet crafter who makes time to donate and help others. And you are a lovely blog friend.

Love your cards, as always! Sorry to hear you've had a rough week, but congratulations on your blogoversary! A friend of mine once had a goldfish die, and she wanted to bury it but the ground was frozen so she put it in the freezer to bury in the the meantime, she bought a new freezer so packed everything from her old one and took it to her daughter's for storage...forgetting that the goldfish was in there! Her daughter was very surprised :)
I doubt that will make you feel better, but hopefully it will give you a smile :)
