Two lovely awards

I have been a bit busy just now with cards I can't post on the blog as they are for upcoming birthdays and I am not sure if the intended recipients read my blog or not. Despite that I have been priviledged to receive not one, but 2 lovely awards.

First I must thank Shirely over at Card, Art Etc for the Premio Dardos Award, and secondly Pamela over on Pamela's Pages for the Makes My Heart Smile Award. Please take time to visit these ladies blogs, Shirley has been bloging for a while and her blog is always full of the most wonderful ideas and inspiration. Pamela is a new blogger but a very enthusiastic crafter that I have known through one of the craft forums for a while.

Now the rules for the awards :

Premio Dardos

The "Premio Dardos" award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in their effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day. The rules for this award are :
1. Post it on your blog.
2. Name of the person that has granted the award
3. Hyperlink back to his/her blog.
4. Pass the award to another 10 people worthy of this acknowledgment.
5. Contact each of them to let them to pick up the award and rules on your blog.

The "Makes My Heart Smile" award has much shorter rules - pass it on to 10 of your favorite blogs.

Now as I am required to pass on both awards to 10 others then I hope I can get away with cheating a bit and passing both awards on to the same 10 people. All the blogs below are truely deserving of both awards.

Here are my 10

1 Jan at Far North Designs for not only her amazing art work but for her interesting and informative post about life in Alaska, a severe but stunningly beautiful part of the world.

2 Fabyon (OK Fabrizio) at Cardmaking Scrapbooking and ATC: from a male point of view my wonderful Italian/Canadian/English multi-lingual friend, thank you fab, my life would be so much less fun without your friendship.

3 Anne at Stargroves - another amazing crafter who always inspires me with the diverstiy of her ideas.

4 Allison at Stampin' When I Can - I don't comment on your blog Allison, but I susbscribe to it and enjoy sharing with you the blogs you link to in your "newly discovered" posts.

5 Kath at MuckyPaws yet another crafter who amazes me with the variety of work.

6 Jo at The Little Peach Tree who does not post often but when she does you can be guarnteed to see something exquisite.

7 Stellamaris123 at Atlantic Bubble - yet another blogger who makes the most wonderful things.

8 Hels at Ink On My Fingers - love her altered art and the fun Sunday Stampers challege that I so often just don't get time to take part in.
