Puppy Love and another award

I managed to get three cards made last night whilst hubby read the paper and watched TV. I love this image from Lili of the Valley. I used the lovely sketch from Moving along with the Times , who also have theme of animals, and the colour scheme of brown and blue for the challenge at A Spoon full of sugar. This image has a lovely old fashioned feel about it and the papers are from K & Co. I inked the edges of the image, the papers and the flowers for a vintage look forPassion for Promarkers. Puppy love is the challenge at Die Cut Dreams.

I received another lovely award from Kazabing. Thanks Kaz.

These are the blog award "rules."

1. Copy the award to your site
2. Link to the person from whom you received the award
3. Identify seven things about myself.
4. Nominate 7 other bloggers
5. Link to those on your blog
6. Leave a message on the blogs you nominated.

1. I have been a bookworm ever since I could read. As soon as I finish a book I have to know that I have another to start.
2. I am a big fan of Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger, Piglet and friends in the 100 Acre Wood.
3. I love holidays in America. I have been to Florida 7 times, New England 3 times and New York once. I would love to explore more of both the USA and Canada.
4. I love to snuggle up next to hubby on the sofa on a Saturday night and watch a movie on our home cinema system. So much cosier than a cinema.
5. I hate the taste of tea.
6. I once booked a 10 day holiday in Austria and entered a competition as part of the booking and won back the cost of one week.
7. My favourite current TV programme is Spooks.

I would like to give this award to (in no particular order)


I hope to see this award on all your blogs and learn 7 things about you.
