Monday Morning Greetings!!

Well, good morning friends! Welcome to another Monday, which means the start to another work week. (insert sigh here, lol) We're heading for a long weekend though, so that's good news! Oh, and the kiddies are back to school next week on earth did the summer go so quickly?? I don't have a card to show you today, but just wanted to pop on to share a few things with you.

Did you enter my current BLOG CANDY?? Check out THIS post for a chance to win some Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Ok, I have to apologize as I'm a little late in posting a lovely blog award that I received from two very thoughtful stamping friends! I am so grateful to both Mary Lou and to Robin for thinking of me. I was so touched...thanks so much ladies! Take a look:

There are a few rules that go along with this blog award:

1. Thank the person (or in my case "people") who sent you this award.

To both Mary Lou and Robin....THANK YOU LADIES!!!! You have just brightened my day, and I truly appreciate you both...not just because you thought to send this along my way, but for your continued encouragement and support through all your lovely comments.

2. Post the award on your blog.

Done. :)

3. List three things about yourself:
  • I love to read.
  • I love to draw, although seldom find the time for it.
  • I treasure my supportive and loving husband Dean, our 17 year old son Nathan and our 10 year old daughter Ainsleigh.

4. Post a picture you love.

Thought I would share a picture that Dean took of our daughter Ainsleigh from her ballet recital this past June. Ainsleigh is often a "guest" on my blog, as she is one of the Junior Krafty Girls for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. She always joins us with a lovely creation on our release day blog hops. She loves anything art-related, but dance has been a passion for her since she could walk. We just love to see her up on stage...even her 17 year old brother comes out to support her! (I love that Nathan will sit through recitals to shows his sister he cares...even though we know it's not his "cup of tea", lol.) He always greets her with a hug and words of encouragement after a performance...and sometimes even a rose. Love my kids!!

5. Pass this award on to five friends.

Oh, it's so hard to narrow it down, as I can think of so many deserving stampers (and I hate to leave anybody out), but here you go:

Oh, and Mary Lou currently has some fabulous Blog Candy...check it out on this post HERE!! I'll also be putting up a link to her candy in my sidebar.

Well, that's about if from me today! I hope you have a wonderful Monday, and I hope to see you back this Friday for a brand new challenge from Wags 'n Whiskers Stamps!

Blessing friends, and thanks so much for stopping by!
