Another award

Woooohoooo I've been given an award from two wonderful, talented friends Sarah and Tee . They both have brilliant blogs so check 'em out! I'll sort out who to award this gorgeous award to later (plus I haven't forgotten that you both tagged me too ;) ) The rules are: 1. Only 5 people allowed. 2. 4 have to be dedicated followers of your blog 3. one has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world. 4. you must link back to whoever gave you the award. It was a lovely surprise to see I have been given this award, it's very thoughtfull and boosted my spirits no end and I haven't made a card for over a week, it must be the weather 'cause the sun is out and it's warm today and guess what? ...... I've made a card (I'll have to upload it later, my internet connection is on a very go slow!!!!). I have also been given this award from the beautiful Lea, thank you Lea for your very sweet words ;) I have also some more wooohoooo news which I'll post later :)
