My First Blog Award!

It's been a very busy couple of days. I know, I keep saying that but it's true! I've been trying my best to make a card but I haven't found the time. I also had a little kitchen accident a couple days ago and cut half the nail off my left index finger. I know, so gross and painful that it's been difficult to do much without full use of that finger. Luckily the weather's been gorgeous so I've gone out to meet friends for lunch and organized playdates for my little guy.

No matter, I'm determined to make a card or two this long weekend (Civic Holiday) even though I have a ton of things scheduled! We have to get a new car seat for the baby, I have a massage and we're meeting friends for brunch. It's going to be so much fun! Then I have to decide if I want to purchase the QuicKutz Epic Six! Do you have this or have you used it and what do you think of it? This is a big decision because if I take this step to die cutting I'm going to be buying a whole lot of die cuts especially nesties. Uh-oh... :D

But...wait...look what I found in my inbox this morning before 8:00 a.m.! Yup, my days start at 6:00 a.m. (yikes) and sometimes earlier. I've been trying to catch up on my blog roll this week and I got this beautiful email from Alysabeth Johnston at Layin' Rubber Ink. Alysabeth, you're the best! You made my day and, best of all, it's Friday! I know, I don't work right now but it's nice to have my husband around on the weekends so I always look forward to the end of the week. I haven't been blogging all that long so I'm thrilled this is my very first blog award. I'm still clutching my heart. I know, I'm such a sap. LOL

So now, to pass this award on to five more lovely and creative ladies. It was so hard to choose just five as I've made so many friends in such a short time. In no particular order...
