Stampin' Anne to the blog world, is a super talented crafter with a heart of gold and a design style as big and bold as the state where she lives--yep, Texas! She is a master at mixing patterns, texture and BLING and a visit to her blog is sure to inspire as well as bring a smile to your face with her sparkling personality not to mention the occasional song lyric! Thank you Ann Marie--it's an honor!
Christina, of Sea Glass and Sentiments, is another super talented crafter with an amazing attention to detail and a clean and simple style that is to die for! She mixes colors and layers to perfection and is wicked with her sewing machine! She also has a heart of gold and always leaves me the sweetest and most encouraging comments. Thank you Christina--I am honored!
As part of the award, I am to pass it on to 3 other blogging buddies whom I admire. Of course, I find inspiration from so many talented bloggers out there--my Google Reader list grows everyday--but the following artists inspire me not only with their amazing creations but their kindness as well:
- Linda @ Stampin' Seasons--not only do I love her effortlessly elegant style, Linda is generous with her comments and always makes me laugh!
- Lesley @ Always Playing with Paper--Lesley gave me my very first spot on a Design Team and along with that, confidence in myself and my designs . On top of that, she is super friendly and I love her style.
- Tara @ Tara Bee Ink--Tara's creations are always stellar. An amazing attention to detail and a superb sense of color. I always leave a visit to her blog with my jaw still on the floor!
