Belated Birthday and Blog Award

I am so bad about mailing this cute digi turtle (and the Belated sentiment) made me smile!  Someone will get this card in the mail soon......

   My blogging friend Lynn posted a card using this cute image and I had to go snag it from Deedee's Digi's. This is a challenge where if you post a card with a digi, you get next month's for free.

  The image is pre-colored which really made it fast and easy! The sentiment (Happy Belated Birthday) and more of the numbered DP is inside the card.

Blog Award- I do not usually play along, but the mood struck me today- and I thought the questionnaire looked fun.....

Denise nominated me for a Blog Award- Pop on over and say Hi and see her gorgeous cards!!!
Here are the rules of the nomination:
  1. Be sure to thank the blog that nominated you and be sure to link back to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions that the blogger asked you.
  3. Nominate 11 of your favorite blogs with under 500 followers and ask your own 11 questions.
  4. Make sure to let each blogger know about your Liebster Blog nomination on their blog (leave a comment and link back to your Liebster Blog post).
 Here are the questions Denise asked me:

Here are my 11 questions for the chosen bloggers

1.  What is your favorite coloring method? Copics

2.  What die cutting machine do you use and why? Big Shot- I had a Cuttlebug and it broke, so I started using the Big Shot I got at a SU party I had- love it.  And, I just bought a Silhouette Cameo.

3.  Do you prefer digital stamps or traditional stamping and why? I go through phases- but had a computer crash and lost a ton of digi's, so stopped using them quite as much. 

4.  What other crafts do you do except card making? Oh I have been creafting since I was little.....  I sew, smock, and love embroidery. I used to Cross Stitch alot, I knit, crochet and do dabble in beading/jewelry making a bit.

5.  What prompted you to start your own blog? I decided to give it a try to join a DT for a small company that was a sponsor for Technique Junkies.

6.  What do you do with all the cards you make? I do not send too many of them- so bad at that!  I send cards to the soldiers. The hospital I work at is building a Ronald McDonald house, so in the future, you may see more kids cards : )

7.  How many cards a week do you make? depends- 2-4 generally.  I am very slow at cardmaking......

8.  Do you have a craft room? Yes, it was formerly full of all of my sewing supplies, but now shares space with my stamping supplies.

9.   What is your favorite crafting? Papercrafting.  I rarely sew.........except for on my cards.

10.  Are there things that you collect and if so, what is it? Rubber stamps, I am always on the lookout for items to use on cards : )

11.  What is your favorite craft products and why? I love the cutting machine(s) and my Technique Junkies newsletter : )
Here are the 11 bloggers that I nominated:

I love your card, and learning more about you. The most intriguing thing I learned is you like to colour with Copics.
