A little of this...a little of that...

First off this morning, I'd like to thank Susan for presenting me with this award:

It's such an honor to receive an award from such a fabulous and creative stamper! Check out Susan's blog here.

To accept this award I had to do a few things: First I needed to thank the person who nominated me for this award and include a link to her blog, which I have already done above. Then I need to list seven things about me that people might find interesting and then nominate seven Kreativ Bloggers, posting links to the seven blogs that I nominate, and then leave comments on all seven blogs letting them know I nominated them. So, here are the seven (hopefully) interesting things about me:

1. I got my motorcycle license at the age of 49.
2. I have had 3 broken arms (2 at once!)
3. I had not flown on an airplane until I was 45 years old...and what's strange about that is that my dad was in the Air Force while I was growing up!
4. I can write cursive backwards.
5. I can recite the 50 states in alphabetical order (thanks to a song I had to sing in chorus in the 5th grade!)
6. Ulysses S. Grant is my 7th cousin, as is Laura Ingalls Wilder.
7. I am currently on the Sherrod Studio Design Team- my first design team experience!

Okay, now here are the 7 Kreativ bloggers that I get my inspiration from (in no certain order) that I am nominating for this award:


Thank you ladies, for sharing your fabulous artwork with us!!

On a second note, a while back, I submitted this card to Bombshell Stamps' Nautical Theme contest:

Well, yesterday I found out I WON the contest! As the winner, I will receive 3 tropical background stamps and a whole slew of blue embellishments from Gauche Alchemy!

Woo Hoo! I hardly ever win anything! I just LOVE Bombshell Stamps!! If you haven't checked out Shannon's stamps, you should!!

I hope that you all have a wonderful week. School starts here tomorrow so I know that work will be extremely hectic for me this week! I hope to see you back here in my hide-away soon!


  1. Wow! What a sweet surprise to find on this lovely morning1 Thank you so much for this award, Mary! You've made my day, and I'll be sure to share it this week!

  2. Oh my gosh, thank you so much Mary! I am honored that you chose me to receive this award! I will be sharing it with others this week as well!

    Congratulations on winning the Bombshell Stamps Challenge! That is one of my most favorite of all your cards and you certainly deserved to win the challenge with it!

  3. Congrats on the win. That card is colored so beautifully. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Are you referring to "Fifty Nifty United States"?? Because of that song, I've known the states in order since grade school as well. It comes in handy! LOL (And now I will have it stuck in my head for the rest of the day!)

    Thanks so much for nominating me for the award - that's very sweet of you! :)

    Congratulations on the Bombshell win! Have a great week!

  5. Congratulations and Congratulations again!

    cursive, backwards? Dare I ask how you learned to do this? LOL -I enjoyed all of the fun and interesting facts about you!
