Make my day ........!

Last Friday, Annette made my day by nominating me for this Award, and it has taken me since then to find out how to put the Logo on my blog!! However, all is now well, as you can see. Thankyou Annette.

The rules are as follows
Put the Logo on your blog.
Add a link to the person who nominated you.
Nominate up to 7 other blogs.
Add a link to those blogs on your blog.
Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

There are so many wonderful blogs out there, I would need to be able to nominate at least 70 not 7, so I've decided to accept the Award gratefully, but not pass it on. Hope you don't feel I am a party-pooper, but at least there are no 'hurt' feelings. A heartfelt THANKYOU to all of you who visit my blog and feel inspired by what I do.

I haven't blogged my Calendar Girls Postcards for the month of June - so will do just that, right now.....

Here is the inspiration from the actual calendar, and this is the lovely Card I received from Jenny in North Wales. She says the background is a computer printout on silk chiffon, and coloured in, with an added ribbon. The sunflower is made of woven petals and has a beaded centre. Thankyou Jenny - I love it.

This is the card I made for Joanna, which has a fabric paper background, with a twisted red textured 'ribbon' held down with beads on a piece of organza. The sunflower is a cutout piece of lace that is dyed, painted and stitched.

You can see all the other beautiful cards made for the month of June by the other Calendar Girls by just clicking on the Calendar Girls Logo on the right hand side of my Blog.
P.S. I started this post on the 12th July - and completed it today the 15th. I haven't worked out how to change the date when I put it in as a Draft!..........

PS I can't help you with that one my dear 'cos I don't know how to do it either.

Susan D said...

But I can - at the bottom of your post just above PUBLISH POST it says Post Options click there, to the right it has the date and time just alter that to what you want it to be. Hope that makes sense.

BTW love your interpretation.
