"You Make My Day" Award

I was surprised, pleased and a tad curious to discover I had received an award this morning. What could I possibly have done that merited such a thing I wondered? Well as it turns out I haven't actually 'done' anything other than be a nice person ... isn't that cool? Jules at Creative Makes had selected little ol' moi as one of 5 people to receive this "Make My Day" award. A small gesture but it made me feel really 'chuffed' and now I am going to pass it on and see if I can bring a smile to someone else's day.
Thank you Jules ... you 'Made My Day'

Here are the instructions I have to follow ...

* Write a post with links to 5 blogs you find of interest and that inspire you.
* Acknowledge the post of the award giver.
* Display the logo "You Make My Day"
* Tell the award winners that they have won by commenting on their blogs with the news.

Now as a fairly new blogger I haven't got a lot of people to choose from and there are a couple of people I would like to send this award to who don't have a blog ... so that's a shame. However I will do my best and hope not to duplicate anyone else's choices.

* My first choice has to be my dear friend Ann who has been a wonderful friend to me for many years and is a very talented crafter. Check out her wonderful creations HERE
* Another talented crafter whose blog I love to visit is Donna. She always has something lovely to show visitors and is a real inspiration. Check out her blog HERE and you'll see what I mean.

* My third choice is for Carolyn, someone whose work I have admired from afar regularly, (long before I was a blogger myself). I have lurked at her blog site and taken great delight in seeing her creativity ooze from the pages but never been brave enough to comment until recently. Check out her chunterings HERE.

* My next choice is a young sixteen year old with oodles of talent who I 'met' through being a member of the CB forum. Pink Punk was a worthy winner of one of the craft challenges and I just know she will win more prizes with her super creations. Take a peek HERE to see her winning entry and her other fabby projects.

* My final selection is another CB friend Adele. Her posts make me smile as she writes as I imagine she speaks which mean her blog entries can be very amusing. Couple that with her enthusiasm and talent and you will understand why I enjoy visiting her blog. Her wonderful creations can be found HERE so I urge you to take a look and admire.

Hope I've followed the instructions correctly and I must now rush off to notify the nominated bloggers ... hope they are as pleased as I was.

Mission now accomplished!
