Blog awards

Hey everyone! I have gotten a couple of awards from some amazing women the past month, and I am very flattered and Blessed to receive these blog awards! I have some amazing blogger friends!! :) I really feel like I know them! I would love to meet all of them someday! :) I have three awards, so I am going to try and pick someone different for every award, but they all really fit in every category!

I was given the Karma Award from the talented Kelley from My Front Porch. She is such an inspiration to me with her button cards, because we both share the love of buttons! :) She gave me this award last month and I still haven't posted it or passed it on! Sorry Kelley! I am usually good about getting it passed on, if I get an award, but I guess life gets to busy sometimes!
The Karma Award: "These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their award." I need to choose 8 blog to pass this on to.
These ladies have some amazing talent and are always so sweet and leave me comments and encouragement! Thanks so much ladies!
Heidi & Adriel-Two Happy Stampers
Amanda Winklemann- Crazy Stampin' Mama
Kelly Marie- lawn fawn cards
Anthonette - Chavez Designs

7. I had never sang in front of people until about 2 years ago, when I prayed for some way to praise the Lord, (since I, the preacher's wife don't play piano) and He gave me the courage to start singing in Church! I'm by no means the best singer, but I love to praise Him!

Here are some ladies who inspire me everyday with their blogs!

Winter, thank you so much for the nomination!! So sweet of you!! I loved reading the seven things about you! So funny, because, I too, am a "pastor's wife" I hate that title, and I'm in denial of it, only because I hate the stereotype that people assume. I DO, however play the piano, but I also play guitar, trombone, and anything else I can get my hands on, but that's just me. I'm so glad to hear that you are singing!! Does your church have a website?? My brother in law lives in Frisco, TX. Is that anywhere near you? Also, totally non-related, but my jumbo scalloped punch is also not sharp enough, and I'm not very happy about that either! Ok, enough babbling, but I wanted to thank you and I'll try to pass this award on when I can sit down and decide who to nominate, I am NOT a good decision maker!! Thanks again, Winter for all your encouragement! May the Lord continue to lead, guide and bless you!
