A Blog Award is Born!

Happy Wednesday all! Ever receive a blog award and wonder what is the story behind that award or who created the art for it? Those questions led me to creating my own blog award to give out to those that inspire me. Hopefully they will do the same for those that inspire them. Which is why this is called the "Inspiring Blog Award". There are many blogs that I frequent looking for inspiration whether it is for a layout, how they used a particular stamp, colouring technique, or just to read and get to know who they are and a little about their lives. I have made many friends and have been inpired by many others ... this award is for you. Snatch it up and pass it along. There is only one rule to this award and that is to leave a thank you in the comments of the person's blog who sent it to you. Easy peasy.

I used a section of the card I created yesterday because I thought the colors were so vivid and would make a fabulous looking award. You can see the deets of the card that inspired the award here. I hope those that receive it, enjoy it and pass it on.

Here is my list of inspiration: (I cannot possibly list everyone here, but since we run in circles I know this award will find its way to you.)
The Greeting Farm
Club Anya

Have a great day! Don't forget there will be a new Farm Fresh Challenge this Friday over at The Greeting Farm.
