Stylish Blogger Award - Who would have thought?

This came as quite a surprise...

Turns out Christine nominated me.  Thanks so much, that was so sweet of you.  I have to admit I'm still quite new and a bit clueless when it comes to blogging but I'm working on it. 

According to the rules, I must list 8 things about myself and must pass on the award to another blog that I follow.  Here are some facts:

1. I am a Christian. 
2. Love making cards for people - last summer I started a card ministry at my church. I send a monthly card to all the elderly members of our church who are either home-bound or in a nursing home.  Inside the card is an encouraging and uplifting sentiment and scripture verse.  
3. I've been stamping/card making since 1998.  Have not purchased a card from a store in over 9 years.  Although I'm quite certain I've spent way more on supplies.
4.  I've been married 10 yrs, to the sweetest man, Mark, who is my best friend.  We met at work - 2 jobs ago for me.  He moved here (WI) from Ohio and I relocated from MN so we started going places together.
5.  No kids or pets
6.  We have 5 nieces and 2 nephews, plus gained 2 nephew-in-law's last summer, age range 10-25.  Both my nieces who married last summer were in our wedding 10 years ago.   
7.  I have 2 older sisters and 1 younger brother.  We are all engineers of different disciplines.  There is a 8 year gap between my sister and myself.
8.  Favorite book (at the moment) is: The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus.     

I saw that Christine had posted about this award, but I guess I did not read down to the last line.  Good thing Christine mentioned it in an e-mail or I would have totally missed it.

Love Laurie and Jen's style too Christine.  It is really hard to choose just one, so I will pick 2.

Angela Kelly - you must check out her blog.  Everything she creates is Fabulous!

Chris Franco - So many amazing ideas, love your blog.  I have so much to learn {sigh}

Have a Blessed Day,
