Happy Monday!

Hello Friends! I have a couple of things to share with you tonight, so please bear with me. First up, my sweet, stamping friend Linda Monroe, has passed along a special blogging award to me called The Liebster Award. I get to pass this award on to 5 other bloggers. Here is how it all works...

1. Link back to the person who gave you the award and thank them for thinking of you. (Check!)
2. Post the award on your blog. (Check!)
3. Pass the award along to 5 creative bloggers (with less than 200 followers) who inspire you. (Check!)
4. Leave a comment on the blogs of the 5 people you've chosen to let them know about the award. (On to that, just after I finish this!)

I passing my five awards along to...(in no particular order)

Next up, I have last Friday's Blogger's Challenge to share with you. Now I know, I'm a few days late, but here it is anyway. Our challenge was to create something three dimensional. I fell in love with Joanne Basile's Photo Frame Wipe Off Board when I first saw it, so I decided to try one for myself. I'm calling this a "Remember Board" to write down all of those little things that I seem to forget. Here's mine...

All of the papers are from My Mind's Eye. The rose were made with the My Favorite Things Die-namics Rolled Rose Die and some MFT felt. I also used the My Favorite Things Die-namics Fancy Flourish Die. Here is a close up shot of the roses and the flourish.

Now, we are onto the last part of my post (if anyone is still!) Here is my card for the sketch from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club. You can find the sketch and all of the details to play along on the My Favorite Things blog.

This little guy has been in my Pure Innocence collection for quite awhile now. I thought that it was about time that he and some ink were introduced. The image and sentiment are from the Splish, Splash set. He is colored up with Copic Markers (B41, BG11, E000, E00, E01, E23, YR20, and YR21) and cut out with the Classic Circle Nestabilities. The papers are from My Little Shoe Box and My Mind's Eye. Some black card stock layers and a kraft card stock base finish this one off.

Thanks so much for visiting with me this evening. Have a terrific Tuesday...Toodles! :D

What a cute board. Great idea. Those felt flowers are a perfect accent for the lower corner. I'm sure this will come in handy in your busy household. The MFT card is adorable too. Perfect for our spring splashy days. Enjoy!
